mosquitos anyone?

Last week I headed to the Arboretum with a family and it turned out pretty comically. At first, things were all good. Kids were playing and running around. No mud on the clothes yet.

Then, the mosquitos decided to join us. And it wasn’t just one or two, but an entire army of them. We made our way through the prairie amid the clouds of flying bloodsuckers. And then, the sky started to darken. Ironically, at our session last year we finished just in time for a big downpour.

As we attempted to take a few more shots, we were just laughing at the whole situation. Rain, mosquitos, muddy kids! What a perfect family portrait day. And then, to top it all off…guess what I found in my car’s side pocket when I got back to the studio? You got it. Bug dope.
