I wanted to do a photo shoot in front of our garden before the end of summer, so we did a quick little shoot one night before dinner. This did not involve a lot of planning but I think they turned out great. The backdrop behind the garden isn’t the prettiest (our grill, the ugly chain link fence) and I tried to hide it as much as possible, but that’s our yard so we should remember it that way. The important thing is that the lawn and the garden look awesome. So green! I wish the zinnias looked the way they do now, but at least you can see a few of them. I got that awesome blanket at the Goodwill a long time ago. I’ve been waiting for the right time to use it and this was the perfect occasion.
The sun decided to pop out when we were taking our family photos with the timer. This was the best out of all of them. I look tired, the boys are all washed out and Harper looks like I just grabbed her and threw her on my lap, which I had. But that’s okay. It’s real life.
I have really loved this summer but I have to say I’m ready for a new season and fall is, as you know, my absolute favorite.
