Swani River (Family Session)

Isn’t that just the cutest title. I came up with it because my cousin’s daughter-in-law, Bobbi, called me about photographing their family while Grandma “Swani” was in town. I thought her name was so darn cute … and we were down by the Boise River after all … sooooo … Swani River. 🙂 These guys were great. We were all over my secret garden and they treaded through some pretty tall weeds, sopping wet grass, and lots of goat heads to follow me. Sounds like fun doesn’t it! Well, it was.

This is Bobby and Grant with their pretty cool dogs who are also the most well-behaved dogs you’d ever want to meet. They didn’t even try to jump in the fountain like my dog would have!

When I asked Swani if she would let me take a picture of just her, you know what she said don’t you? … “oh you don’t want a picture of me” (as if that would stop me). Yes I do. And look, this family wouldn’t have had this sweet picture with this sweet smile if I hadn’t convinced her that she wanted her picture taken alone. Yeah, I’m good like that. 🙂 Just try to tell me no.

I love Bobbi and Grant. They are adventurous, always have a smile, are hard-working, and they love these dogs. I love these dogs! Who wouldn’t love these dogs when they are as well-behaved as they are. Thanks for calling Bobbi and I hope you enjoy the memories of having a special Grandma around for a while.

Eep! Eep!! I was so excited to see these here! Bobbi is such a treasured friend from Jr. High, for me. Grant is great too & I know what you mean about those dogs, I need them to work with my boys 😉 Beautiful pics & small world, eh?

Kathy, I am suddenly nervous having a professional looking on! 🙂 For those out there reading this, Kathy is the wife of a cousin (Grant is her nephew) and she is a professional wedding photographer in Texas who does a-ma-zing work! I am a total amateur next to her but I hope to keep learning! Thanks for the nice surprise to hear from you Kathy.
