It has been a busy four days. Two children sessions, booking a wedding, and another three possible sessions lined up for the end of June sometime. And somewhere in there I have my new nephew arriving and a vacation with my family. Whew! Busy but loving it!
So my latest session was with another of my friends from my MOPS group. For those of you who don't know MOPS is Mothers Of Preschoolers. (I highly recommend this organization to any mother. I would not survive without their love and support.) We had decided to meet up at her house as her lil guy had a "friend" they wanted to include in some of their shots. Low and behold it was another MOPS mom and her lil girl. So i started to look around for where we could get some shots of them together. I soon discovered that the neighbors had this beautiful split rail garden. What a perfect back drop!
We headed outdoor with the kids in tow and just told them to go exploring. They quickly found the garden and I started snapping. But all too soon she had to leave and we set off to get some other shots.
Earlier in the day I had found an older gazebo and natural rock boat ramp that I thought would just be perfect for some shots. So we get to the location and he makes a bee line for the steps of the gazebo. He then proceeds to "scoot" on his bottom down all the stairs. Uh ohh........this could be a challenge.
So when life gives you a boy who loves stairs.......give the boy different stairs to scoot up and down. Thankfully there were a couple different sets of stairs very near by. :) I really did have a blast taking his pictures. He is such a sweet little boy with the most joyful laugh. I can't wait until I can do it again.
........But maybe next time I will keep him away from stairs.
Until next time everyone,
So I had a children's photo session coming up this past weekend and I was pondering as to what type of theme we should try. I love outdoor photography, as anyone who follows my blog can tell you. I found a large teacup planter and it hit me. Garden Tea Party! I phoned the mother with my idea for her girls session and it was a home run. I mean really what lil girl wouldn't want to have a tea party outdoors?
I also got lucky as my hometown was having city wide garage sales this weekend and boy did I find some treasures. Some of which played a vital role in this session. A beautiful old wicker chair and man is it heavy! I also found an old functional steamer trunk. And yes it is going to be featured in an upcoming photo session. So stayed tuned........
Well what do you do when you have some time on your books and no one to photograph? Well if you are me, that time is commonly know as DRESS UP TIME for me and my girls. They love getting all dressed up and getting their hair done, because they know afterwards they get to have their photo taken. And boy did we have a great time the other day.
I had a few ideas for portrait shoots and I involved my "Models" to help pan out all the details. My youngest served as my Surfer Girl and my oldest daughter gave Alice In Wonderland a run for her money. I had such a great day with my girls, which in this busy household doesn't happen nearly as often as I would like. So you see even I get caught up in the hustle and bustle of day to day life and miss some of those fleeting moments I wish would last forever.
Til next time everyone,
