Old Trucks and Good Times

Even though I photographed this family a couple weeks ago, I just couldn't get enough of them. I noticed a really cool truck in their driveway and wanted to use it in some more pictures. This time, the boys really wanted to go play with the neighbors but their daughter was all about the pictures. She is so beautiful and loves the camera, which, of course, I love. By the end of the shoot, I was ready to go camping. Something about the old truck and the woods... two things that speak to this girl's outdoorsy heart!

I'm a sucker for an old truck! I think it stems from the many nights working with my daddy out in his garage when I was a little girl. To this day I still love the smell of car grease- weird, I know. We always had a beautiful old 54 Ford. I learned to drive on a beast of a truck too. It was a white 63 Chevy with granny gears. When I drove it to highschool all the girls thought it was so strange that I was driving that monster (that didn't have power steering), all the guys thought it was so cool. ...So, when I saw this beautiful green truck, I couldn't resist wanting to include it in photos...
