“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity...” ― John Muir
Yesterday, the Neff family invited me to their home for a camping session. And I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since.
What if your photographer arrived in jeans folded up to her knees and immediately challenged your kids to a barefoot race up a hill to go catch polywogs? What if her only goal was to capture your little one's spirits being as wild and free as possible, under a canopy of trees and wide open sky. Grass stains and muddy cheeks a requirement. What if, after all of that playing, she set up a tent and built a campfire and brought bags spilling over with marshmallows and chocolate bars and graham crackers. I'm so ready.
Yup, family camping sessions have stolen my heart.
Thank you, Michelle and Hans, times a million.
