This week we have an extra blog post to show off our little big girl….
In April, our little gal turned THREE! Since I knew we’d have newborn portraits coming up in just two short months and my deal with Ryan is one family session a year (I’ve yet to meet a dad who loves family portrait day!) I opted to let B have 90% of the spotlight all to herself before baby sister came along. And I needed a few headshots too so we did a ‘just the girls’ session and I’m so glad we did. You pretty much can’t squeeze more personality into this little girl and giving her the chance to let that shine on camera is a blast (plus how fun are these images going to be to show her and/or recreate when she’s older!).
People ask me often about photographing my own family and are often shocked to hear that I do not do our own family portraits (heck no)! Even just doing Baby O’s monthly photos is a hot mess. Photographing my own kids (on anything other than my cell phone) has never been fun for me. I prefer to sit back, relax (hahaha) and just be mom on photo day (and all you mommas know that is NOT relaxing). BUT after the fact, waiting… getting to be surprised by the unveiling and seeing my kiddos true personalities shine is beyond fantastic.
Thanks to Natalie for yet another fun session together. Photos by Oh Love Photography.
