Who knew one sweltering hot, humid and sweaty day could be so much fun? I don’t normally take on large, extended family sessions, but for some reason my gut told me I had to do this one and I’m so glad I did. This session took place back in July, and thankfully the timing was just right because, due to the miles between them, this family doesn’t get everyone together all that often. I traveled all the way southwest of Mandan (hey for a northeast Bismarck resident, that’s a long way!) and was so pleasantly surprised when I came down the hill and rounded the corner to find the most beautiful and unique little farm that one-third of this group calls home. Whoever said that North Dakota is only a lot of flat, ugly, and frozen nothing was dead wrong!
I very much enjoyed spending a few hours getting to know this family. I had a private tour of their home and their amazing collection of local artwork, visited the horses, learned a lot about a train station in Essex, Montana, and laughed at (and a couple times worried about) the adventures of young boys. Not bad for a day’s work!
