This year's Valentine sessions brought more new clients, as well as a session with one of my favorite regulars!
Kelli is a mom who believes like I believe - you can NEVER have too many photos of your child or children. I have been photographing Allisyn for about 2 years, with our first session together having been a Matilda Jane Clothing mini session before she was even a year old. I love being her photographer, and seeing how she changes with each session. I'll be seeing her again at Easter, and in the early summer for her third birthday session. She's a beautiful little girl, with a gigantic personality and a great wardrobe! And I think she's finally, maybe, starting to warm up to me a little. ;)
My first new clients of the day were Addyson & Cooper. Their mom, Kandi, had initially contacted me in hopes of scheduling a fall session a few months ago. Our schedules and weather prevented us from being able to get a fall session together, but as soon as I posted about my Valentine sessions, she was one of the first "in line"! These kids were so beautiful, and they were up for whatever poses or props I suggested. They even brought some of their own props! Their smiles were natural and unforced because, I believe, they were truly having a good time. I can't wait to have them back for more sessions!
My final session of the day was for a sibling duo and their older cousin. They all arrived a little leery of what may be about to happen, but they warmed up quickly. They all became eager participants once I told them that it was OK to pick up my paper heart decorations that were scattered about and throw them into the air. There were gorgeous smiles all around from that point forward. Kids having FUN are probably my favorite things to capture. Nothing beats that, in my book. I hope to have Zadriona, Kyleigh, & Rylan back for another session soon.
