But once in awhile, everything just clicks. Mom and I communicate well. We pick just the right location together. Her husband and kids show up excited and ready to have fun. (well, Dad shows up with a smile on his face, really that's all I want.) The light is right. The colors are right. The planets have aligned. Mercury isn't in retrograde. Wait, I went too far.... :)
And magic happens. Like beautiful, awesome, memories made and documented, photo magic. Photoshop can't put magic into photos, nor the best and most expensive cameras. It takes the right mindset and the right "click".
