an afternoon in the woods


Awhile back four of my favorite subjects (see a few past sessions with them here, here and here) and I spent an afternoon at Caspers Park. It was a calm and sunny day with a gentle warmth. The park was eerily quiet when I first arrived all alone. While I set up the cute homemade tent in the brush, I heard a branch crack and leaves rustle about 100 yards away.
