Pull back of above. This was taken in front of the garden.
I had NOTHING to do with this shot. I was STRONGLY opposed to the idea of my pregnant sister getting on her horse Arlo but she could not be dissuaded. She tells me that it’s no different than riding in a car. I beg to differ. Cars generally do what you tell them to. Haven’t had that same experience with horses. As you may remember though, Brooke is a true cowgirl. She has been riding horses since she was teeny tiny. She grew up barrel racing and queening (denim and diamonds as Heidi would say). She taught horse riding lessons for many years as well. So clearly I relented on this but I only proofed about 3 shots for her because I begged her to get off before I took very many. We have a shot planned for when she is NOT pregnant that should be fun. I’ll keep you in suspense on that.
By the way, I had to cancel Tanner’s birthday shoot last week due to rain. It’s rescheduled again for this Friday so maybe next week I will slip some of those in.
On an unrelated topic…Jim is SO in the dog house. I asked him to cut the boy’s hair last night with the following instructions. Ty’s short. Tanner’s slightly trimmed – didn’t want it messed up for pictures. Ty came out with a mohawk. Ha ha. Sent him back in for Dad to fix immediately. Ty said he didn’t like the mohawk either and asked Dad to cut it like his. Ty came back out with it almost bald on top and slightly longer on the side – just like Dad’s. Jim was laughing. I was almost crying (not kidding). Jim evened it out but it looks awful. You can see the IV scars in his head too and that hurts my heart to even look at not to mention the fact that he now looks like he is undergoing chemotherapy. Warning you ahead of time because I seriously don’t even want to talk about. As for Tanner, his hair is also shorter than I wanted for his pictures tomorrow. That’s what I get for asking for haircuts 48 hours before pictures. You may not see pictures of Ty til his hair grows back!!! GRRRRRRRRR!
