For the longest time I have been wanting to get some pictures of my grandparents & while in Utah last I bribed them into a full blown photo shoot with outfits, props & even assistants! (Thanks Mom & Prez :)) I have to say these may be my favorite pictures I have ever taken. Probably because my subjects are so darn cute!
This awesome chevron quilt they are sitting on was made by my great grandmother! I really hope to inherit it someday, because I love all the colors.
It ended up a pretty hot day so Prez was carrying around the parasol to keep them shaded the best we could.
Here are some close ups. I love how both their eyes really match the blues they are wearing!
We did a small wardrobe change because my mom wanted them to match, even though she changed her mind after a couple shots.
I had been to this abandoned house almost two years ago & it was seriously fate that my mother was able to find it again.
My Grandma was a little embarrassed to kiss in front of us but my Grandpa was loving his life :) They were seriously troopers standing out in the hot sun, trekking through abandoned grounds & taking orders from me. It was so fun to spend time with them & get some shots I know they would never get taken, that I will cherish forever. I Love my Grandpa & Grandma Ballam so much. They are such loving & giving people, I hope to follow in their footsteps of being truly amazing people. They are such a sweet couple & just love to be at each other's side, truly best friends.
