Sumner County is a beautiful place to live. Fields, farms, lakes, and historic homes make up much of our daily lives. The Donovans love the water and wanted photos that represent it. What a wonderful idea to have family pictures lakeside!

Their children had a blast, dancing around, exploring the water, and even being silly on occasion. I have yet to meet a child who doesn’t like to have a tickle war.

Do you see these smiles? That center one was while discussing his favorite part of school: lunch! Then I may have told him his eyes were purple to get him to laugh. 🙂

There were beautiful maple trees near the front of the neighborhood that we just had to include in our session. There were so many genuine laughs, hugs, and giggles. Watching littles explore nature is one of my favorite things to photograph.

Thank you sweet Donovans for inviting me to spend the afternoon with your family! It was a blast.
