this was a fun shoot, but I’m looking forward to doing another one with mom & dad included!

Maci is 5 and Moriah will be 2 in about a week I think.

Egypt: Overnight Hike of Mt. Sinai

I almost didn’t go on this trip. We slept for a couple of hours and then woke up at 10:30 p.m. to leave by 11. I wasn’t feeling well but Jason said he’d go without me (what a great guy… 🙂 so I decided to tough it out. We started hiking at 2 a.m. and got to the top around 5:30. It was rought but SO worth it. I got some great pics and I hope you think so too.
