This is my friend Kristal, and her sister Kim. A couple months ago, Kristal & I started discussing Christmas present ideas, particularly, what should she get for her Mom? Moms are seriously some of the hardest people to buy for sometimes. They have everything they want, they never give you any good ideas, and you can only buy them so many knick-knacks and Body Shop baskets before they are plain tired of receiving them.
Here’s a secret, though: Mom’s love to receive pictures of their kids. Especially if they haven’t had a decent picture of their children in years and years. Pictures are the kind of thing that Mom’s will cry over. The kind of thing that they will put up on display and tell absolutely EVERYONE how thoughtful of a gift it was.
So, what I’m saying was, once I mentioned this idea, it was an easy sell. Kristal & Kim brought Eric along and we made a morning of it, on what was absolutely the last “autumn” weekend here in Edmonton. We had so much fun wandering around Whyte Ave and Old Strathcona, and then headed down into the river valley to explore the colours that nature had provided to us. Kristal & Eric even brought their “girls” along for a little run in the park.
Thanks for allowing me the privilege of taking your pictures, guys! I know your Mom will love them. 🙂
