smcmennamyflower + umbrella
WARNING: buckle up, there's a lot of words below.
It's April showers season, so here's a spring inspired #combophoto, which my daughter's were gracious enough to pitch in and help on. I'm sure I've subjected them to worse modeling scenarios, but the little one definitely stepped up and made it happen... and the older one got behind the camera so I didn't have to act like a contortionist for once. asking either of my kids to stand frozen for longer than a second is no easy task (especially right before bed), but my youngest was hell bent on making sure we got the shot... and I love that. this started with a handful of test shots a few weeks ago (which I'll put up on @combophotofail (and a hand holding the flower version which lost in a vote)), but we took our sweet ass time tweaking it until we finally landed here. The combined images were taken at dusk on blue sky days, but with the help of a garden hose and some heavy shade we were able to transform it into a rainy day. isla's outfit is courtesy of @target, but Target isn't involved in this post so when I say "courtesy", I mean they were courteous enough to stock those items so I could purchase them. a few other notes... I went through 128 individual flowers to land on the one you see above. It turns out flowers are far less symmetrical that I ever could've imagined. And in the spirit of bringing our seemingly divided world a little closer together, the bottom image was taken on my Sony A7r ii and the top image was taken on a Canon 5D mark III (thank you @joshdweiss). Sony + Canon... World peace doesn't happen overnight, but it's a step in the right direction. @lmcm2, enjoy your 128 pink and purple flowers ❤️.

- j.ackmedlinYou got with me that Instagram story 😂
- amanda_hunter21I always read "the words" that go with your combos as they are usually humorous. I like the back stories you give. They actually bring the combos to life even if that seems a little backwards.
- memefor4Awesome photo! Need this umbrella! Where could I get this
- jocelyn_martindaleI'm now devastated to find out that's not a real umbrella. 😥 But bravo on your photography skills!
