Family Story: McDonald Family

It's Ashley here! Hope you enjoyed hearing from David. Didn't he do a fabulous job?! He makes a woman proud.

This weekend we had three shoots... all different and so much fun! I could really see the fall colors coming through. And oh my goodness the lighting was FABULOUS. Something about the light at the end of an autumn day... sigh, can I do all my shoots in the fall?!

Saturday we traveled a few miles south of Asheboro, NC to do a shoot with the McDonald family. We LOVE this family. I have had the privilege of spending lots of time over the past few years with these awesome girls, Shelby and Haley. They tell good stories over dinner and never forget an inside joke. Leigh, their Mom, had the fabulous idea to do the shoot at a farm that has been in her family for many years. We were all over the place so hang in there as I briefly cover all the fabulousness. Ok, ok, enough chitchat- let's get to the goods!

Thank you McDonald family (and extended family) for such a fun day!! We always love spending time with you guys.
EDIT: Just noticed that sometimes my pictures look different on a PC... lighter, less saturated... I need to look into this...
