That’s what we call her. Lately I’ve been obsessed with photographing her. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s because she has a loose tooth and those top baby teeth will no longer be. She’s growing up, I don’t like it, but she is. She could be the most photographed child in Central Illinois. After all I started doing this when she was just 9 months old. Yep, nearly 7 years ago. So many things have changed in that time, I have grown as a photographer, and she has grown into a little lady. I look back at the thousands of images I’ve taken of our baby, our only girl, and am thankful to be able to give her beautiful photos when she is grown. My hope is that she looks at these images and feels how much we loved HER, not how much I loved photography.
Fall is almost here and the field was looking beautiful with all the yellow flowers in bloom. It was just calling for the new yellow chair, so her daddy and I made promises of an ice cream cone at DQ and she agreed to some fun in the field. The sun wasn’t quite low enough when we first arrived so she got that cone before our session 🙂 She has always been pretty great as long as I’m patient while we are shooting. Most of the smiles are a result of her dad giving me bunny ears or pretending he sees a spider on my head.
We are completely booked for September and I only have 3 remaining spots in October. So if you want a fall session it’s best if you grab one now 🙂
