This is the second family from Ohio that I have photographed here in the Carolinas since moving to the South in 2005. It is so funny how life moves people in similar circles. I have known dad since I was a child…we actually grew up down the street together in Ohio, and I’ve known mom since high school. Now they are living in Greenville, SC, and since mom and I are in touch on Facebook, one thing led to another, and they decided to make the drive to Rock Hill for me to do some family photos for them. I’m so glad they did!
The evening was a bit cooler than it has been for the past few weeks, and we had a little bit of wind, but the park is positively gorgeous this time of year, with blooming azaleas and rhododendrons. An added bonus was that hundreds (if not thousands) of geometer moth larvae were creeping around all over the place, much to the delight of the three oldest boys. Those little inchworms really helped break the ice!
I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed spending time with this family. I hope this isn’t the last time I get to see them in person!
