I can’t believe a whole year has gone by since I photographed this precious girl at only a few days old. Since these are friends of ours, we had big plans to have a fun-filled day to be followed by her one-year photo shoot at a local orchard. Well, the fun happened… and so did the clouds and chance of rain. Literally while the grill was being fired up and the rest of our family was changing out of bathing suits and getting ready for a BBQ, we were running down the road to find a decent spot before the skies opened up. In the end, it all worked out and this pretty backdrop along the country road worked perfectly.
Oh this precious girl… she’s a beauty.Per my usual, I can never pick ‘just a few’ for a blog post… so here’s a bunch of my favorites. I’m imagining a beautiful wall gallery in their new home (currently being built!) There will be so much wall space to fill with photos of this gorgeous girl.
And this one… this one… deserves a BIG frame. One of my favorites.
I would certainly be remiss if I didn’t include a few candids from our fun during the day, and a few of her handsome older brother.
Happy Birthday sweet girl, you are SO loved by SO many. In case you can’t get enough of her, here’s a quick slideshow that includes a few more (and there’s music!)
Now that the leaves are beginning to turn – goodbye summer (*tear rolls down cheek*), I’m beginning to get inquiries for fall shoots. I’m very sorry to say that I’m still not currently taking new clients/sessions. We moved into our new house about a month ago and JUST got internet and cable a week ago. My list of things to do with the new house and just life in general is a MILE long, forget the fact I have three of my own kiddos, which means school, homework, soccer, dance, birthdays, etc. (my own little guy just turned two and I haven’t even done HIS portraits yet!) I’m just not ready to take on much more than the few sessions that have been in the works for a while now. Sorry to disappoint those who have asked (some more than once or twice!) but at this time, my family is my biggest priority and unfortunately everything else just has to come second (*sigh*). Thank you to everyone who still asks even though they already know the answer, it is flattering to say the least.
