I always get really excited when I get to photograph 'kids' I've watched grow up. I have known Dustin his whole life. He was always a bit of a crazy kid (little brother to one of my friends). How could I have expected anything less from a photo session with him?!
We'd set up a date a few weeks prior to this session, but didn't set a time until the night before when Dustin called. So we confirmed a time and then he said, "We're going to have fun. We bought paint." In my head, before he said the 'we bought paint part', I was thinking...well, of course, we'll have fun. My photo sessions are always fun...but I never could have imagined how much fun these two would be. Paint, a giant mud puddle, a hose to clean up...yes, it was super fun...well, other than the super cold water from the hose.
Congratulations, Dustin and Alyssa!
I hope you never forget the fun side of life!
...and I hope we can redo these pictures when you reach your 25th wedding anniversary!
