this was a fun one!!! so, i’d been daydreaming of using this outdoor tub for a session since the moment we moved into our house. it’s open air beside the house not too far from our chicken coop but enclosed on three sides for privacy and when it rains the sounds on the roof above and the warm tub water pretty much feels like a slice of heaven. well, wouldn’t you know it that the day i had planned to do this family session as part of my workshop i was teaching here that it decided to be dark and stormy. we got a few tiny breaks in the rain but this turned out to be a pretty fun alternative to a full outdoor session (you can see a little farther down below that we did go outside for a few minutes). this big happy family, the walkers, were so joyful and fun and the kids couldn’t have been happier to have a bubble bath party in their winter jammies and the chickens of course had to take part in the country fun too! mama was such a good sport about being tackled in that tiny tub (in addition to a chicken flying onto her head… oh the kids loved that!), everyone couldn’t stop giggling and they all wished they could have stayed in there for hours. so much fun!
