Over the Labor Day Weekend, My husband and I along with his family drove up North to Beal City, Michigan. Every year the Knights of Columbus in this small town hosts a Chicken Dinner BBQ. A couple months ago, we unfortunately lost a great man in our lives. His name is Richard Blind. He is Jake’s Grandfather. Every year for Labor Day weekend we would all go up North to spend time with him. I remember last year he had me follow him around his Walnut trees pointing out every single walnut that he could find. He even insisted I photographed each and every one. Let’s just say I have a million photos of walnuts growing on those trees. I even managed to get a few of him in front of his trees.
This year, The family decided to uphold tradition and go up to Grandpa’s Farm. This year I just kept thinking about how if Grandpa were here, he would probably be pointing out all the walnuts again. So to commemorate his memory, I decided Jake and I should have our photos in front of the trees as well!
Here is how I photographed the two of us without being behind the camera.
I set my camera up on my light stand.
Then I used this remote trigger to snap the images!
This photo is just to add a touch of cuteness!
