I know that when I go to photograph another photographer, its gonna be big.  My friend Tricia already had the idea in her head,  just helped her execute it.  Our friend Heather was also shooting (they both shot my family pics along with another friend).  I walked up to the beautiful brass bed assembled in the field, knowing she also had feather pillows and cupcakes and I got all giddy.  Too bad the balloons I tied to the laundry basket flew away un-beknownst to us…boooo.  Before this shoot, I told my kids about the pillow fight and they said I never did fun stuff like that for pictures…. Here are some fun shots…not necessarily in order.

 Tricia…it was a treat.  Anyone else want to drag a bed out into a field?  Little do my kids know, I brought home those feather pillows and I’ve got a plan for them!
