Going on a hike

Last week we got to enjoy a lot of time with Chris’ family. One of his sisters was in town with her family, which meant there were boys ages 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11. Fun group. We went for a hike one day and I took my iphone 5 and my dslr. I thought I’d share a few of the photos with the settings today, for those of you that always comment you like these kinds of posts!

That last shot is one of my favorite from the hike – so typical of her. She’s always keeping up with the boys, usually with a stick in her hands too.

  • danielle - I do like that park. It is a nice hike for little ones and beginners 🙂 Plus the trees and bridge are gorgeous! That many boys need to be outside 🙂 I see my boys hike and think, this engergy was never meant to be in a house!

  • Jacci - Love 🙂 That’s a LOT of boys to have under one roof! Good move taking them outside 😉

  • Paige - I have a tough time balancing wanting to find the photo moments and putting the camera down and being fully present to enjoy the moment. Any words of wisdom, Ashley? Love seeing pics of your precious family!

  • Jamie - Love when you post your settings! Thanks.

  • Izzy - I love the second photo, of Little One walking along and all the trees. I like all of them, but that one is just so beautiful! The light coming through the trees makes a great background too.

  • Ebee - I ran into your husband and daughter yesterday morning and I wanted to send you a quick note…..could you email me? If not, I understand.

  • Jennifer@Godstellations.com - Love the pictures of your precious family! So sweet!

  • Kammie - Little One’s maxi dress is too cute! Where is it from? (My daughter has the same dress as Firecracker!)

  • Alex - I want to take my kids there! Where is it? Thanks

  • AshleyAnn - Kammie – it is from BabyGap a little over 2 years ago

  • AshleyAnn - Alex – it is called Ray Harrell Nature Park in Broken Arrow

  • Eva - All those extra boys, and she manages to keep up. Not surprising at all!

  • Gwen, The Makerista - Thanks for this, Ashley! Its nice to have a look and see if your settings would be close to what I would choose. Makes me feel like I’m somewhat on track. 🙂

    Looks like a beautiful day!

  • Kellie - I so appreciate that you share your settings for your photographs!

  • nichole - so much fun having so many boys around right? My husband’s brother was just in town visiting us last week too. We have 3 boys and so do they. We had 7,5,4,3,2,1 ages covered… in 4 years it would be the same as your crew!

  • Anna - It looks like another amazing day with the childen 🙂
