"D" and his buddies hang out {6 Month Portraits}

Prior to meeting with any of my families for their pre-session consultation I send out a litter Questionaire to get to know a little about them and what they are looking for in their session. I always ask about any little kiddos; their age, and a bit about their personality. Jenna wrote about her little guy. "extremely active & smiley." She forgot to mention "will steal your heart with his killer surfer-guy hair." I just love the thick locks little "D" is rockin'!!

6 months is one of my favorite stages to photograph, and that's the milestone we were celebrating Saturday morning with D. We hit up Arsenal Park and downtown, and as you can see from the photos above some of his special little buddies came along to celebrate.

My family sessions are styled to be fun and fresh - I'm not big on incorporating a ton of props, so if we do choose to add some I love them to be special to the family. For D's photos, his parents nailed it...for some of the portraits in the park we incorporated handmade blankets by each of his Great Grandmas, and for his little buddies above each one was a gift from someone special in his life. Fresh, simple, & sentimental ... I love it!

And I LOVE how smiley little D is!!

Thank you guys for such a relaxing and enjoyable Saturday Morning. Your "summertime" personalities just rock to work was a great kick off to a weekend! I hope you enjoy this little peek into your upcoming Gallery....I'm so glad to have had the pleasure of getting to hang out with you!

Sending Hugs to their Soldier {OpLove Photography}

Monday evening I met up with Miss K and her Mommy; it was a beautiful, breezy evening - just perfect for collecting pine cones,  making silly faces, and capturing some smiles and long-distance hugs to send to their Soldier overseas in Afghanistan... 

Miss K's "Daddy Doll" {a stuffed doll with a photo of her Daddy's smiling face in it - a deployment gift a majority of FRGs hand out to families to help little ones cope with missing their Mom or Dad} is obviously well-loved. In the portrait above, I swear her Daddy could probably feel that hug she was giving him! {Oh! tug on the heart strings!!} 

I know her Daddy is going to love having an album of his two beautiful girls, laughing and smiling together, arrive in the mail...and I know they certainly can't wait to welcome him back home...
