A for Army Brat

Sessions

This is probably the LAST set of pictures from this little girl before she moves away on her next big adventure.

I’m so sad to see this family go because A’s mommy is just awesome, A is so fun and so adorable, and A’s daddy? Well he’s a big softy for his little girl.

This session is the first from my military brat mini sessions and I think it perfectly captures the spirit of the military child.

See more of Little A for Easter, family pictures for her birthday, and her fruit smash!

ONE in a Melon!

Sessions

Yesterday, you got to see the angry bunny smiling, today you get to see her devour a watermelon in celebration of her birthday! This little girl is so petite and so sweet the watermelon was perfect for her, and she absolutely loved it!

Happy Birthday A!

 

 

The Angry One Smiles!

Sessions

The last time we saw this little one, it was Easter! Little A is one tough customer when it comes to getting her picture taken as she really, really likes to scowl. The good news is, though, that we got a ton of laughs from her when her parents came over to celebrate her birthday!

Tomorrow I’ll share little A’s “cake smash” but until then, enjoy this smiling little baby!

Back to the Abbey, +1

Sessions

The last time we visited Villers Abbey, I worked with the family that didn’t stop! I have to tell you, not many kids do stop… which makes my job fun!

This time we had a family of six (1 more than our last visit to the Abbey) full of littles who were 4, 3, 2, and 0 years of age! This mom and dad team were fantastic and the littles were so sweet. Big sister A knew everything (even things about me!) while the littler sister (keep up!) was very picky about getting her picture taken (though rest assured she did end up sitting pretty and posing for me at the very end). The brothers, N and R were very stoic though I got a few smirks from big brother N and laughs from baby brother R. Okay, now that I’ve confused you all, here are their portraits!

The Angry Little Easter Bunny

Sessions

This week, I got to work with a little girl who, for some reason, just stole my heart. She’s always very serious but I love watching her crawl around and Mess Maker J enjoys giving her hugs when they play together.

We went out to the park on a sunny afternoon and mom brought the cutest hat for little A to wear in her Easter photos. I’m just so in love with these photos and they turned out so gorgeously, I am very proud of myself! Haha. I am really happy with how well they turned out, technically, and composition wise.

 

And my favorite, the exact last shot of the day…

That’s the wall art photo for me! Need that one larger than life!

Thanks little A for bringing the attitude to my sweet little sessions!

And for that Miss A, you get a chocolate!

Sessions

It’s time to showcase Little M‘s older sister, Miss A, who performed incredibly once I brought out Mess Maker J’s favorite treat, chocolate chips! Sometimes you have to bribe a toddler and you know what? It’s worth it!

I think the chocolate was a great incentive to get Miss A to smile for me but I think it also helped her get a little more comfortable with me because who wouldn’t like someone giving them chocolate just for smiling?!

Here are the gorgeous photos I got of Miss A and one of the gorgeous girls together!

I also wanted to share this awesome tutorial from PHLearn about how to fix some issues in with the backgrounds should they, for example, be a horribly wrinkled sheet and you desperately need to fix them! This has definitely helped me yell at my computer less.

I’ve still got two sessions to share from my St. Patrick’s Day minis so stay tuned for more green goodness!
