Pettiskirts are all the rage and perfect for classic portraits! We headed down to the railroad tracks to photograph these girls who gave us another reason to do what we love doing the most…to shoot, shoot, shoot and did I mention shoot?! They were truly our inspiration from the very beginning and I can honestly say that I don’t think that I would have picked up a camera if it weren’t for Mya, so I’m blessed to have had something so wonderful happen to me! I absolutely love and adore these beautiful little girls!
Kaela came to this photo shoot with no reservations, no hesitation but all of the anticipation to light up the camera! This shoot was literally all of five minutes and within the five minutes, Kaela didn’t just bring it…she brr-ought it, honey!!! Kaela comes off as a shy, reserved and soft spoken kinda tot and it was hard for me not to think that she would clam up just a lil’ in front of the camera, but of course and as always, I am proven wrong! It was a pleasant surprise and I started to wonder if it was a turning point – a symbol and a metaphor for the upcoming milestone that she will be encountering. Kaela will turn three…a royal three, that is – with a princess themed party fit for the princess that she is! Happy 3rd Birthday, Princess Kaela!
Last week was a fun and memorable week for Mya as she spent time with close family and friends. It was particularly special because Mya’s Great Uncle Cecil & family were visiting from Kansas and because of that, we got some Q.T. in! So it’s been a whirlwind of a week along with other happenings, but things have finally slowed down a bit for me to play with my new backdrops and lights that I finally got in for my studio! Here is my first attempt using a one-light setup!
Some things were meant to be together – kinda like t-shirt & jeans, peanut butter & jelly, love & happiness and nothing comes close to love & happiness than zebra & hot pink…well…for me at least! This past weekend, we celebrated Avery’s 2nd Birthday in all “chicness” and I have to say it wasn’t so shabby! This milestone was a special one for Avery who is near and dear to my heart and because she sits so closely to my heart, it was only natural for me to have a hand in the party. I had to do something…at least one thing….okay, okay…a few things! It’s really becoming an obsession – kinda like plopping your finger into a birthday cake to get a lick of icing. It’s just that satisfying. I always seem get in over my head and bite off more than I could chew, so in true Navy fashion I made the invitations and Avery’s birthday outfit complete with Chucks encrusted with bling and pink ribbon laces to match!
Avery’s actual birthday was on Thursday, so we took the girls out to Adventure City for a pre-birthday celebration. I couldn’t help but to put the girls in these empty phone booths when I saw them. Call me crazy, but I luv it!
