I shot a wedding for friends at their home on September 11th.
I had a Sunday afternoon session with a silly brother-sister pair, Claire and Benjamin:
...and out to the river one evening with some dear friends.
Kayla is a senior this year:
We watched the last Summer sunrise at the lake...then after breakfast we loaded into the canoe for our ritual loop around Turtle Island. While on the water we noticed the coolest clouds overhead.
Later that day we floated a stretch of the Clark Fork with our girls:
...and Astrid exposed her toesies.
We shared some hot cocoa.
We played in the sand under a big beautiful sky.
Tell me, what's better than this on a Sunday afternoon?:
Today, we ventured over to Missoula Maze to mark the end of Summer with some great friends. They offer free pony rides Tuesdays ~ and we were all over it!
"Thanks for the ride, Fizzy."
My little Irish lassie, Erin, her wee lad, Sean Michael, and a goat's bum.
"Here, Chicky, Chicky, Chicky..." The petting zoo was the biggest hit with my girl.
Ro Ro rockin' the swing .... Astrid rockin' her new glasses.
The gals helping Christina walk Fizzy to the water...and balancing on the giant tires.
I'm always a little emotionally mixed this time of year when Summer disolves and Fall settles in. I love Fall, but I love the light that Summer brings, and I will be looking forward to seeing her again next year... Happy Fall Equinox!
