Darla's 6 Months Old! - Rushton Family Photos
I've been so lucky to know the Rushton family for the last several years. They are seriously the kindest, funniest and sweetest people around! I've been able to photograph Audrey's second birthday, an extended family session and Darla's newborn photos. And now, Darla is six months old and Audrey will be starting school in September. Wow.
The thing about every session I have done with the Rushtons is that there is always a pet/animal involved. And every time it's been a different one. They are animal lovers, these guys, which works out great for me because I am as well. But, this time was different. You see, they have free range chickens. Yup. Free range chickens. Which may not seem like a big deal to many. And pretty cool to most. And while I think they're pretty cool as well, I have a secret..... I am terrified of birds. Or rather, anything that has wings and flaps (except for ducks, for some odd reason).
However, when I saw the chickens running around happily in their backyard, I just knew that we had to include them somehow. So, now I must share with you some of my favorites and the super cuteness that these little chickens added to the (already super cute children's) photos. And I should add, once they were in a few photos, they seemed to quite enjoy photo bombing many of the others, which made for a very easy reason to smile :)
