kinda like “wife swap,” but way less drama and way more fun! i met up with beth wood at our alma mater (the alma mater of a Nation) yesterday….to swap photos of our kids (and i totally got the sweeter end of the deal…her kids were cooperative, older, and super fun to work with…beth got a squirmy, tired 10 month old with a scratched face and bruised leg, and my son who claimed he had his “quiet” face with him while in the ‘Burg….what in the world does that mean???).
Here is what i captured in the few, chaotic moments we were together. i was multi-tasking like a champ…snagging shots of these adorable, easy to photograph children, while holding a baby, giving a baby a bottle with one arm, “encouraging” max to give a real smile , asking my husband to not be handling business matters on his blackberry while helping with the kids, and making sure my baby wasn’t eating any ants or leaves, and visiting with my sorority sister!
we palled around the Wren yard and building, then hit Merchant’s Square for the children’s “bribe” gifts and some lunch.
felt GREAT to be back in williamsburg. i LOVE it there. Hoping to get another trip in VERY soon!
thank you so very much, beth!
these were shot with either my 50mm 1.4 lens or my 85mm 1.4. i rarely use the 85mm lens, so it was fun to use my “big girl lens!”
