Gone Fishin'

Last weekend my little brother came to hang out with us while my parents attended the graduation ceremony at the University of Iowa. After a delicious breakfast at Hamburg Inn, Josh took Sam fishing at the lake across from our house. I joined them to snap a few photos (fishing really isn't my thing) and although I was out there for about 45 minutes, I still managed to miss him catching an actual fish! Despite not having documentation of his catch, I did get some photos that I love and wanted to share with you all. (By the way, all of these were taken with the Canon 85 mm 1.8 which I bought several months ago. To be honest, at first I wasn't sure I liked it but now I am IN LOVE.)

I adore his tiny little freckles. So cute.

Showing off what he caught most of the morning...weeds!

The photo below is my absolute favorite one of the day...I couldn't believe how smooth the lake was, I don't think I've ever seen it so still.

When I was taking these photos I was thinking something like this would make a great session idea for children or families. Is there something (fishing, camping, mini golfing) you and your family do in the summer months that you'd like to make into a photo shoot? Send me an email at madiganphotography@gmail.com to discuss your ideas and book a session!
