This little lady has to be one of the most adorable babies ever! I made a little dress for her 9 month session, out of a vintage sheet and vintage table runner. She looked like a little doll with her vintage bonnet and flutter sleeves. While she felt a little out of place in the grassy Norwayne Field, with the help of some cheerleaders, we made the best of her absolute cuteness and lovely sunset lighting.
I love photographing engaged couples. This year has brought me many new clients. Each one has been so special and unique. Sometimes clients will remind me of people I know. Lindsey is a nurse and has that sweet caring nature about her. Evan reminds me of my brothers. My brothers are tough men, and Evan was much the same. But it was great how candid he became when he needed to be. Now that’s love! I’m always so excited to see how a couple’s story seems to unfold through their images. Upon hearing Lindsey’s plans for their wedding, I knew that I needed to incorporate some things that would fit her style. To set the picnic scene, I made burlap and lace bunting, mini apple pies, and brought along sparkling cider to fill my grandmother’s antique glasses. We started in a light dappled walnut grove, and then headed to some other softly glowing spots I’d found in San Pierre. The light fell beautifully and set a romantic tone. I’m always thrilled to capture these kinds of moments between a couple. It’s like being able to do the artwork for a great love story. And I have to thank Lindsey & Evan for being such troopers wading through all the tall grass and uncharted territory! Blessings to you two!
Our adventures took place at Bendix Woods and it was the perfect location for this spring Little One’s Session. I created a canopied “set” to have cookies and lemonade under, though as it turned out, there was just too much to explore. A mentor once told me that photographers wear many hats. At the time I didn’t know how true that was. For this session I wore the sprinter hat, one I have worn a few times previously with toddlers. We chased three year old Wyatt, back and forth on the green lawn, and all the while, I think he was having a rather good time. His sweet smile tells it all. Abbi, his sister, was ready at a moments notice to strike a pose, or chase after her brother. The session ended with Abbi floating away with the wind, or perhaps that was just pretend. Thanks Abbi and Wyatt for making this adorable session!
Just had to share some sibling love from this evening. More to come!
