an afternoon in the city…

this was an extra special shoot for me…my good friend gwen, who you will see in these photos, took photos of my family earlier this fall.  she is also a photographer in the twin cities and a wonderful one i might add.  we decided this summer that it would be so wonderful to do a little photo shoot swap.  you would think that because we are photographers that we would have never ending supplies of photos of our children and families.   but, it is so hard mainly to “be in” any photos with our families.  so, this was my chance to allow gwen to leave her camera behind and allow her to be a mom and wife and not the photographer.  her family is so loving and sweet and we had so much fun.  i enjoyed every moment of our time together.  our day ended with little “b” presenting me with the most beautiful picture that she colored for me.  it made my afternoon…what a sweetheart.  when you see her, she will melt your heart. and, if you have a minute check out the photos gwen took of my family.
