My Uke and I

my uke and I - a real life photography session

I was asked to photograph a friend of mine who recently discovered a love for the ukulele. We decided to grab the girls (my eldest wanted to tag along with her friends) and hop in the car. The day was dreary, it was sprinkling throughout the drive, Lydia sang mmbop (ok, it wasn't actually Hanson but it could have been), but when we got there the field was beautiful and we had a cool stormy sky as a backdrop toward the mountains. The kids went around exploring while I snapped a few shots of her new found talent (Hanson, are you looking for a Ukulele player?) and at the end Mr. Sunshine came out for some beautiful backlighting.
