This little gal is growing up so quickly. Three really is a great age and I wish there was a way to bottle it all up and save it for later. So full of life, love, imagination, magic… These photographs are images straight out of my dreams.
She’s not afraid of a thunderstorm. Even though it threatened to rain on our parade, she kept dancing away.
Always been best buds. Octane and Rhilyn.
What beauty! My husband and I dream of living on this road someday. But for now, frequent trips to family-owned land will do.
Out of all of our dogs, she loves to run the most. Octane, the old girl of the pack. She’ll be 9 on Labor Day this year!
In an effort to get caught up on some blogging, I’m starting off by sharing a session I did quite some time ago. My niece MJ (as I lovingly call her) is now 8 months old but back in March we did a mini session of her for her 3 month portraits.
She has always been such a happy little thing. Apart from her newborn photos she’s been so easy to photograph. Look at this adorable thing!
Yup. You, MJ!
Rhilyn requested to style one of her pictures, so here it is. She did a fab job wouldn’t you say?
She is too much. Grandma calls her her little butterball. Here she is looking all cute but paaalease…… Aunt Caryn why must you put these dang hats on me?!
When my nephew Jackson was born, I was able to be there at the hospital with my sister and help her remember his birth with some photographs. It was a beautiful time and I’m so happy I was able to be there to do that for her. But, when his little sister was ready to greet the world it was a little different. I wasn’t able to get to the hospital for her birth, let alone to even visit them before she was discharged. A little disappointing for me, but at least we were able to do a quick newborn session for her.
(Here is Madelynn’s maternity session)
MJ (as I call her) was pretty different when compared to her big brother for her session. She didn’t care to sleep much, and when she finally did sleep it only lasted a few short minutes. Then she was awake peeing, pooping, or puking. Ha ha, no joke. Her poor tummy was so sensitive when she was brand new so our session was cut short a little bit.
Big brother Jackson.
This little bonnet I designed specifically for MJ for her newborn session. It looks so lovely on her.
