For the last few weekends we’ve been trying to find a good time to hang out with our good friends, and do family and kid portraits!

Today was the day! I found Easton Tower online, and it looked like a great backdrop for portraits.

Easton Tower, which is supposedly haunted, was built in 1900 to to pump water to irrigate and provide a scenic setting for the estate of Edward Easton.

We didn't tell these two ladies that the tower was haunted, because I don't think they would have been that excited to pose from inside the tower!

They were just hanging out, and I happen to be able to get this one! I love it when I catch people at an unguarded moment. I did say something to get them both to look at me, though
