Before heading to the Mississippi River to photograph a family, I already knew what the mom was wanting – another large, framed wall print of her two kids. I had already photographed these two with the Hernando De Soto Bridge in the background. This time the three “old” bridges that span Ol’ Man River to the south would be the background. It started off a bit windy, but by the time the sun was setting the wind had calmed down a little and the sky was gorgeous!
Kids grow and change so fast. When I first photographed this family in 2013, the kids were in elementary school. Now one is in high school and driving, and the other one is a confident young teen. These two have so much fun together and it’s always a blast to photograph them and their shenanigans!
