I personally am very excited about this museum. We have been to some in other areas and I have always wished to have one closer to us because our family enjoyed the other museums so much. We will be one of the families watching for the opening date so we can be there to enjoy all of the hard work that has gone into making this happen.
The Gearheart family made a generous donation in order to win this package for their daughter and family visiting over the Thanksgiving Holiday from Virgina. The family was very warm and inviting as my niece Madison and I arrived at their beautiful property in Grass Valley. Their home was beautiful and their acres of trees included beautiful horses and the most picturesque areas around. A complete photographers dream! We made our way around the property with the family and captured some beautiful moments, take a look...
This photo is one of my favorites as it captures the true moments of being a child! Click on this photo to enlarge it and look at how we caught not just one child off the ground but BOTH of them! I love it :o)
As we finished up the session the children went back to the pond and wanted to throw rocks in and watch them splash. We came up from behind them to capture them in action, it was so precious to see them play together and again capture them exactly as they are, cute and playful :o) Grandpa had to get in on the playing so below you will see what he referred to as a big fish splashing, when really he had thrown in a very large rock in to see what the grand kids would do...they loved it and it created a very awesome photo, thanks Grandpa!
Before we left we went in to chat over a glass of wine with the family and their beautiful puppy looked so cute as I walked in through the door so I had to grab one last photo of his cute face saying to me "Can I come in too?"
