I had the privilege of photographing my dear friend, Anna, and her family this fall. She gathered her parents and brothers family to capture some family pictures. Of course she brought the Teepee! Let me talk about this for just a minute. I am OBSESSED with kids play forts and Teepees these days. You see I grew up with an Uncle who is Sioux indian and he had a legit Teepee in his backyard! it was pretty awesome. I personally love it for my kids because it allows for play to happen. for imagination and pretend and all the things that kids nowadays just don’t always understand because we are always “plugged in.” However, being outside and playing is where the real fun happens. I remember spending hours and hours out in the woods with my brother playing Ewoks or building forts, or just exploring. It might be a small thing but I LOVE that a small bit of fabric and wood can open the doors to imagination and boy did it ever with these kids. I had so much fun capturing their moments of play, giggles, and fun. It was truly magical. With magical light as our scene it was the epitome of making my heart full and happy.
