The Cousins @ Winter Green Gorge!

One nice day this month, Shane and I went to the Winter Green Gorge (Cemetery) to take some pictures of my cousins and their kids! At first, the youngest, Tyler, was a little shy, but we decided to get right into taking some pictures so it would loosen him up.

Didn't take too long.

This was their favorite part of the photo shoot. Throwing up leaves.

Tommy, Austin, Ava, Tyler, & Gerri

Love these ones . . .

The lighting was so good and they are so cute loving on their parents!

I was surprised how many different spots there were to take pictures (without getting tombstones in the pictures)!

Tom & Gerri

This was actually kinda nerve wrecking for me because it was my first "official photo shoot". I thought it would be harder to pose them and what not, but they worked so well with me! (I am not by any means a professional photographer nor do I consider myself a good photographer, but I do love taking pictures, especially for family, so I had a blast!)

Cutie Ava

I love the boys faces in this one.

This is about when all the geese started plopping down into the pond. It was pretty cool to see. We got a little distracted.

They are the cutest family!

It's just so crazy to see my big cousins and my little 2nd cousins (their kids) all grow up. Time sure does fly by.

Great photos, Stace! It looks like they had fun.

The stone building they are posed in front of is the Winter Green Chapel. The Behrend family's mausoleum is connected to the chapel. (You can see how similar the stone is to the Behrend's Glenhill Farmhouse on campus.) Every year, the campus community gathers to hang a holiday wreath on its door.
