This past weekend we got a little spring surprise in the form of SNOW (ugh!) but inside we were playin’ and pretending we were under the sea! A few weeks ago Tracy showed me some outfits she had been eyeing for the boys and I knew from that pineapple shirt they would be the perfect models for this shoot idea I had floating around (ha ha) in my head. Nick and Jack were so much fun! How lucky am I to have friends who bring their kids to me whenever I need models? I appreciate it so much!!
There was so much fun and excitement with all these sea creatures to play with! Balloons always make such a fun photoshoot and these fish balloons from Anagram were absolutely perfect!
Enjoy these pics as we dream about summer and all the beach days to come!
It might be a dreary morning outside…with snow on the way (NO!) so I decided I would brighten things up with a super springy session I had last month with baby Abby! I love all her different smiles…she was practicing hard before this shoot! 😉
This little lady tried really hard to trick me into playing instead of taking photos, bringing me books and plopping herself down in my lap mid shoot! It was really hard not to put my camera down and just have a little Abby cuddle, but we had to get back to the job at hand and it was worth it….love all these pics of this cutie!!
THANK YOU to everyone who entered this year’s Love Day Giveaway!! And a HUGE thank-you to Alana for collaborating on this session and giveaway with me!!!
Now the part everyone is waiting for…..
Congrats to Krista S, I am so excited to capture your daughter’s birthday session!!
Congrats to Melissa B, who won a consult with Brillante!
Even if you didn’t win, I hope I am still lucky enough to see some of you in front of my camera this summer!!
Hey friends! Today I want to introduce to to the lovely Alana from Brillante and let you in on how to win a consultation with her!!
I was lucky enough to meet Alana when she hired me for a session with her three girls, I walked into the playroom she designed for her girls and I instantly fell in love with her style! Bright pops of colours, glass jars filled with brightly coloured art supplies, pretty wooden toys….everything serves a purpose and looks pretty on a shelf!
When Alana launched Brillante I knew it would be a smashing success and I am always excited to shoot any space she has touched….she has “it” when it comes to design. Her experiences as a teacher and her life as a mom make her the perfect person to put together pretty, functional and educational spaces for kids!
When I thought about shooting in a special space for this year’s Valentines Days shoot I knew she was the best choice for designing the set! We chatted about my monochromatic ideas over a latte and shortly after she sent me a concept board. I told her the things that popped to me and from there, she packed up the goodies that we would need and put together this gorgeous space the morning of our shoot. It was perfect!!!
Want to win your own consultation with Alana?! I know I would!!! Head over and leave a comment on our Love Day Giveaway post to enter! And then tell your friends!
