Easter and Spring Mini Shoots

Happy Easter and Spring my friends! It seems as though only a few weeks ago branches of my fruit trees were bare, and now there are giant green leaves. Spring brings me feelings of hope and excitement, along with the need to attack more projects! 

Last week was the second set of mini shoots at the studio, and this time it was Easter/Spring theme. 

Opening a studio had always been a dream of mine, and when the opportunity to do so came in December, I knew it was the right step. 

And with various shoots I’ve been able to do there, it only solidifies that this was the right step I was to have taken. I will get into all that at a later blog post, but I wanted to share the mini shoots that happened last week! 

I decided to make giant paper flowers because I am obsessed with paper and gigantic objects that are supposed to be small—think giant spoons hanging on the walls. 

I envisioned the children sitting amongst giant flowers during the shoot and when it all came to life, it was so much fun! 

Here are some shots from last week and I can’t handle how much cuteness this all was. 

Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy Easter and Spring.  

Painting Fun

I spent a week in SoCal and I got to spend some time with friends and their kids. While staying with my friend Emily, I watched her son for two full days while she was at a work conference. This was my first time spending alone time with a toddler in a long time, but I love kids and thought, this would be great! So I called in reinforcements and my friends with their kids did a couple play dates with Emily's son and me.

On one of the days, My friend Michelle and her daughter met up with us and we went to an open art studio for children and it was a lot of fun. Can't get over how adorable those tiny aprons were still too big for them! Here are some photos of the tykes doing art.

Happy Spring With Fairy Flowers!

I've been sitting on these photos for a few months waiting for spring to arrive! I found these flowers at a craft shop and I just knew I could just envision using them for some children portraits and I knew just the girl to do so. 

While visiting in Southern California in January, I got to spend time with Kerri from yourwishcake and Eisley. Aww, those two. I've shared photos of Kerri and her family on here before and I wished we lived closer like we used to, but it just makes seeing each other that much more special.

I also found the outfit for Eisley from Old Navy and since Kerri and I both love dots and stripes,  I had to get the outfit. When she opened her gift, she wanted to model the outfit right away! I then asked her if she wanted to do some photographs in the park the next day and that I had a special surprise for her.

When we arrived at the park and I showed her the flowers, she exclaimed, "They're like fairy flowers!!" And she was right. They were indeed like fairy flowers.

Eisley is so animated and such a ham. She had fun with all the flowers, and even acted out scenes from Frozen and MuLan. I'll let you see for yourself.

Happy Spring to you and yours!
