I saw Vanessa for the first time for her 2 year old photos. She was so very shy, but I got some amazing pictures of her. She came in her little ballet outfit and she looked so cute! Fast forward one year, and I was able to do her 3 year old pictures. Mom wanted outdoors this time, so we headed to the local park. Again, very shy, but she warmed up very quickly! Especially when I gave her my umbrella to play with, and of course, she had a ton of fun playing peek-a-boo around the tree with Mom. I think I got the best pictures when she was doing that. A genuine smile and laugh as she was playing. I look forward to seeing Vanessa on a regular basis as she grows up to capture more of these moments!
I met Zabdiel when he was only a couple of weeks old…Maybe 6 weeks. Zabdiel’s parents were referred to me by another client of mine. I love when I get referrals like that!
I was asked to do Zabdiel’s 6 month pictures and a special request from mom. Mom had just graduated college and didn’t have any pictures taken of her with her cap and gown. I jumped at the chance to do them! I’m always wanting to do photos I haven’t had the chance to do. Graduation pics is one of those! Now, granted, I took pictures of my daughter on her graduation day from high school. But this is different. This was college! And she wasn’t family!
It took a little bit for little Z to warm up to me, but once he did…he was all smiles for me!
I know it’s been a while. I have been busy these last couple of weeks with photo sessions! I am going to try and get most of them blogged within the next couple of weeks.
I met Amelie last year when I did Christmas mini sessions. This is where I met most of my current clients. Amelie is a very serious little girl! I love the pictures I get of Amelie even though I get only maybe 1 smile per session. That’s okay though. I love when she comes into my studio. She smiles at mom and dad and I’m able to get a couple of shots.
Amelie came to the studio a couple of weeks ago to do her first birthday cake smash. I love doing cake smashes. They are so much fun to watch as they dig into their cakes. Some of the ones I’ve done; the child isn’t sure about the cake and frosting. Either mom or dad has to encourage them to put their hands into it. Some kids? Refuse to touch it. Recoils when they get anything like frosting on their little fingers.
Not Amelie. As soon as she tasted that sweet goodness, she was all in! Even double fisted at one point!
This was the first time I had used seamless backdrop paper, and I loved it so much! I only have one right now, and it’s a bone color, and as you can see, was perfect for this photo shoot.
I look forward to seeing Amelie in my studio more as she grows up into a beautiful little girl! And one of these days, I’m going to get her to smile at ME!
