CLP Littles - Lorelai's 2 Year Portraits

I was so excited to capture Lorelai's 2 year session because the last time I saw her was at her 1 year cake smash! I couldn't wait to see how much she had grown. She was so much fun! I adored rolling around and playing with her in the grass to capture her story as an (almost) 2 year old. 

It was super windy that day & the bubble machine made it magical! I loved the windswept hair in her face & her precious curls. At her one year shoot she definitely did not have those! The light behind her was so lovely & made for even sweeter moments! She loved the dandelions :)

As you can see, the wind didn't cooperate with our balloon!

Why hire me to capture your little one? 

Because I give it my all! My job is to tell their story because it is IMPORTANT. It is a moment that is here today and gone tomorrow. That means rolling on the ground, getting to know them, giving hugs, and doing my absolute best to capture these images for your family. My business is about connections & relationships and documenting your story because it is YOURS and it is beautiful.

I'll be honest, my first few sessions of children at this age was an eyeopener! Since I don't have any little ones of my own just yet, I am always amazed at how adventurous these little humans are. After shooting several two year olds I realized that there was no way I could get them to sit still for "perfect" portraits.Their little legs are meant to wander (duh!).

So I embraced the lifestyle approach and fell in love with this style of photography even more. So parents, know in advance that your little one will likely not sit still for long. They will be exploring the world and it is totally OK & normal! That's where the magic happens! When their true personality is captured.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORELAI! 

2 year old - Minnie Mouse Session

This little girl had the cutest themed session for her 2 year old portraits - Minnie Mouse! When her Mom first contacted me I was so excited! She did great and her parents were awesome! We pulled out the bubbles & goldfish and ended up getting some great shots! They also brought her little rocking chair and Minnie & Daisy which was super adorable. I love the energy 2 year olds have, can I get some of that? They are little adventurers! I hope you have a wonderful 2nd birthday Emma! 

I adore this little girl and her pink dress!

Just enjoying life & bubbles!
