A close friend of mine just had her baby girl. For her session, we decided to do most of it outside because so many flowers are in bloom right now and the mosquitos haven’t taken over yet. I loved doing photos outside and would love to do more! I might have to add that on at the end of sessions when I can. Mom and dad were so very patient and I took dad on as my new assistant for the day. He was awesome! Thank you guys for entrusting me with your beautiful new baby girl. She’s a dream and I can’t wait to see her again soon!
I’ve been wanting to do Mya’s birthday pictures for a while now but it has been raining nonstop! Today it finally quit. It was warmer and Mya was in a great mood! So today was the day. I’ve been wanting to do something with her outside in nature. She loves to be in the woods, looking for worms, insects, cool rocks. While we were waiting for it to get darker, she was in the creek, covered in mud, searching for snails. I wasn’t paying attention because I was getting everything set up and when I turned around and saw her walking in the water in her shoes with mud all over her white dress, I just had to laugh. That’s so her! She’s such a cool kid! Her 7th birthday is coming up so I’ll be posting some more but I wanted to share my favorite photo from tonight. This pose was all her. She said, “I have an idea.” And then she went and stood like this. Too cute! I love this girl!
This evening I met up with a family that I hadn’t seen since the fall. Things were not working in our favor but they were so easy. It started raining shortly after the session started and then it started raining a little harder. We were outside and there was really not anywhere to take pictures that was covered so we found a big tree and kind of hung out there for most of the session. Whew! Thank goodness for awesome people! These two are about to have birthdays! It was so much fun hanging out with them. Brother reminded me so much of River! I haven’t done many family sessions lately and it was so nice to hang out with some big kids again! Thank you guys for being so easy-going, even in the midst of rain, gnats and some potty accidents. hehe It was so awesome to see you all again! Here are just a couple that I have edited. More to come later but for now I’ve got eyes that are crossing! Good night! zzzz…..
Could she possibly get any cuter?! Look at her little crossed feet! Oh my!
This past weekend my mom kept all three kids for the first time. I saw it as an opportunity to go take some head shots. I was wanting to hire a photographer but decided to just have my husband take them and then I could edit them in my usual style. It took a little bit of educating to get them right. lol I had no idea that my husband didn’t know to focus on my eyes so we ended up having to redo everything because they were all blurry. I would take a picture of him to show him exactly how I wanted it and then would let him trade places with me. I think they turned out alright. We had a lot of fun and it was nice to spend some alone time out in nature! By the way, if/when you come for a newborn session, I will NEVER look like this! hehe I am usually in shorts and a tank top with my hair up because my studio is ultra hot! 🙂
My sweet little Piper is turning 2 at the end of the month. I can hardly believe it. She still seems like a baby to me. I have to keep reminding myself that she’s a toddler. She reminds me herself every now and then when she gets frustrated and pitches a little fit. Her fits are pretty funny. I can’t help but laugh when she does it because inside, I know how sweet she really is. She is the most affectionate, loving, happy child I’ve ever known. I still don’t know what I did to deserve her!
