I’ve tried posting a new entry numerous times, but something just kept coming up to prevent me from doing so. We were out of town last weekend and now I have a head cold that has left me cloudy most of the time.
I did want to post a few from this session though. She has a mixture of Indian, Persian, and can’t remember what else, but you get the idea. She’s an exotic, dark beauty! I just wish she was born a couple weeks later because it was difficult to get her to curl. Her mom has a history of delivering a few weeks early and I wasn’t able to schedule her shoot any earlier. So I took what I could get, although at a month she was still pretty tiny. Such a sweet, quiet disposition!
BOTH of my sessions today consisted of a toddler brother and older sister. BOTH were adorable as all get out. And both reminded me of how much having my own boy & girl helps me deal with the craziness that comes with shooting 2 youngs kids. Strangely enough, both sets of siblings also acted very similar. The older sister was more than willing to be photographed by herself, would only take a little of getting shots taken with her brother, and at the end would get in the way when it was her brother’s turn for his solo shots. I’m not sure if that’s just a girl thing or an older sibling thing. I tend to believe the latter because my son, as the older sibling, acts just the same! As for the younger siblings, they both would rather do something else than get their pictures taken, but at just over a year old, who could blame them? It was a lot more fun practicing how to walk without falling down.
So here are some sneak peeks from both sessions. Needless to say, I’m pooped!
First: Little B and K
2nd: Little J and E
Could these two pictures be of the same girl? Yup. Same timid smile, same beautiful brown hair. Just 2 totally different looks! I love that part about photographing seniors. It’s so much fun to see aspects of their personality come out in a session. What kind of person is she? What kind of person does she want to be? She’s at the verge of discovering who she can become. I remember being a senior in high school and thinking about all the possibilities I had ahead of me. I was so timid and shy then, it’s amazing that was the same person!
Oh hey! While we’re discussing seniors, I thought I’d take a moment to remind seniors that their senior portraits are due very soon for the yearbook. I still have a couple spots left in August for any last minute stragglers!
I shouldn’t be proofing this session right now sinceI have others before it I need to finish, but her cuteness just keeps calling me back! She has such fair, blonde hair. I’m betting she’ll be as blonde as her sister, even though her sister had brown hair as a baby. Go figure!
I had an impromptu session with little B here, while visiting her mom during our vacation a couple weeks ago. I photographed her at 3 months old also, 6 months ago. Her mom and I have been best friends since the 7th grade, and it’s really so awesome to see each other with kids. It’s such an amazing feeling to share the experience of being a mom with your childhood best friend. I remember back then, at 11 or 12 years old, thinking about what we would be doing at this age, and I think our lives are certainly more than I ever dreamed it would be.
She wanted to capture her in the bathroom mirror similar to a snapshot she took of her older daughter at this age. I think she’ll be pleased with the results. I just loved the light coming in from an upper window, so I also took a shot of her getting out of the bath.
