Last year I met these cuties for a chilly mini session. This year we had a gorgeous evening. I had so much fun seeing them (and their parents) again. Check out some fun sneak peaks.
This year, my two oldest nephews hits some big milestones. They graduated junior high and elementary school and Monday, they start high school and junior high!!!! I’m still in a bit of disbelief that oldest nephew is now a high school freshman! It makes me feel so old, but I’m so proud of them and all they have accomplished. They are both avid baseball players and love all sports. I wish them all the luck for the following years. They are becoming such responsible young men! We had a great time doing this shoot and I treated them to ice cream after, which is Matt’s favorite thing in the entire world!
This is such a Connor face:
I can’t believe he’s in high school!:
Summer is unofficially over, Zoe starts Pre-K next week and Piper will start school soon too. We need to cling to summer.
When a fellow photographer says they want to hire you to shoot them, you know you’re doing something right. Claudia and I were only Facebook friends, being in some photography groups for local photographers. She sent me a message and said she wanted to do a photo shoot with her and her 2 year old daughter. We chatted about ideas, locations and styling. And once again, she trusted me and let me select pretty much everything (I love clients like that!!)
We almost had to cancel our shoot due to a recent black eye for Lola (thankfully it wasn’t bad and pretty much cleared up by our shoot), threats of rain (it held off and we even had some peeks of sun!) and then I came down with a cold. But with summer almost over, I pushed through and we had a great time on our shoot. Claudia is a complete sweetheart and I fell in love with Lola’s gentle soul.
Here are some of my favorites:
If you follow my blog or my Facebook page, you will recognize Julia. Julia is a beautiful 11 year old girl with a kind and thoughtful soul who also has the ability to be a complete goofball. She’s going to move mountains (in her own quiet way) and will break many hearts in years to come. She’s a completely natural model and I barely give her any direction, other than “do that again!” I absolutely LOVE photographing her and not too difficult to see why.
I had an idea for a shoot for her and we had to wait all summer for it to happen. Other than the insane amount of bugs we encountered, it was a great session. I love that Julia questions my ideas but ultimately trusts me and does just about anything I ask. Perfect model!
Here are some of my favorites from our shoot:
