The last day of September, I took the kids on what we call “adventures”. Adventures are usually when I’m trying to get something done and need to bring them along with me, (which is pretty much all the time as a mom, right?) but we make the most fun out of the situation. The adventure for that day was to scout out a place for professional family photographs that we were having taken the following day. We headed up Provo Canyon to a park called Big Springs. The moment I stepped out of the car, my breath was taken away and I knew this was the place. We just simply had to capture memories of our family here. On one side there was this big open field with streams running through and lined with the most colorful of trees. On the other side of where we parked, there were also little rivers and streams, pathways into groves of aspen trees, mossy covered rocks, and trails leading to magical wooded places. It was heaven. The kids were in their element. Nature had captured us and breathed new life into us. The leaves were at their very prime for the Fall season. Magnificent oranges, reds, yellows in all directions. It was so stunning. As I followed the kids around I had a chance to photograph some precious moments while I myself tried to practice my own photography skills, which are incredibly amateur, but something I hope to develop some day.
