Ouch!! My blog game has been WEAK!!I These are Spring pictures for this darling family and I am a wee behind! I absolutely love getting to shoot this family though so I could not keep all of it's goodness to myself!
Everytime I go to photograph a family I ask what they would like as their setting. Claire also known as Clarice is fabulous at sharing her vision! Down to the clothing choices and headpieces, this girl loves to curate moments like the best of them! She chose their neighborhood that is nestled off of Highland Road that lends to beautiful backgrounds. She also requested some cozy home photos that are more lifestyle photography . WHICH I LOVE.
While Claire was getting the finishing touches on her Lila aka Yaya (as Louis likes to say) me and Lou stepped outside to get our spot set up. We started outdoors just stepping right out their front door where the beautiful azaleas (don't quote me on the flower bit- they could be roses for all I know) were in bloom.
Mr. Louie boo boo was a doll and romanced Natty with some fresh picks off the bush. We had a small lesson on what thorns were and he proceeded to show me how to choose ones that were ok to pick. (Ok, they are definitely roses because they had thorns!! I got it!)
Their latest addition is Miss Lila Claire is pictured below in that fantastic bow! (I had the opportunity to do her Birth Photography last August. Post here. )
Mr Lou is quite the charmer and warmed up instantly to the camera especially when it came time to give his Yaya hugs... Seems that the kid loves to love his Yaya...
Maybe just a little too much on that one there Lou!!!
We could not leave Gussy poo out the shoot when we came back indoors! He was missing being in the limelight! I don't know if all Dachshund's are as friendly as Mr. Gussy pants because that boy is just the most outgoing pup I have met! Not a grumpy Gussy at all!
This girl is seriously just a babydoll and her roly poly baby bottom is the icing on the cake!
If you look closely next to Claire's magazine worthy self, you can see Lila's determination gameface! Eyes bright and tongue out like she's on a mission!
Louis's prayer hands are the best here! Next we will teach him business hands to take after his daddy!
We sent the boys away to get some shots of just the girls! Does that baby face make anyone else melt like butter? Lord, Yaya!
And this is what I love about lifestyle photography. You just capture what is happening around you. After shooting the girls together, we went to find the boys and walked into Mr Louis's world of entertainment! The kid has no lack of energy and imagination! He keeps everyone on their toes but mainly himself!
Or on his belly.
Like I said, he has quite the imagination.
Unc, my faithful assistant that day and amazing husband everyday, was watching Yaya at the end so we could get some one on one's with mom and dad. Isn't he going to be the cutest dad in the world?! Lawd!
We ended up back outdoors for mom and dad to get a shot or two together! They of course had company! Being a parent means you are never alone again!! Ha! But really who would want to with those cuties at your heels?
