It's been a looooong winter down in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana and we have all been itching at the bit for the grey skies and the downpours to finally stop. So that means it's time to get back to family sessions, outside in the afternoons and azaleas strewn about the neighborhoods!
Thank you Jesus for SPRING! Although its almost over and we are heading into the 6 months of sweltering summer that we get down in this Southern town. But we make the most of our 3 weeks of Spring around here and I was lucky enough to get to schedule a shoot with some favorite friends of mine....
This darling trio can not be summed up with mere words. Daniel, a tad over a year old, is sheer joy in toddler form. He would have been a younger brother but his precious parents lost their firstborn a couple years back- darling, little David. He was seriously a one-of-a-kind boy and made Mrs. Natty a very happy aunt.... He walked his precious self down the aisle of my wedding with a sign in his hands saying, "here comes the bride". Pictured below.... This post could not be complete without David mentioned...
As you can see he was perfect and he looked very similar to their precious Daniel.
I had such a grand time shooting with this family though... They love to just let me create for them and so they leave lots of the ideas for the shoot to my creativity. I asked for favorite books, blocks, toys and if they favored really colorful quilts... we made quite the springtime shoot!
We even had an extra- Gramdma Pippy!
We ended the afternoon at our house with tea and cookies. It was a great St Patricks Day indeed!
Little Daniel made himself at home :) Sometimes you just gotta get it yourself!
Well, that's how we do down South!
