Downtown Family Photography Spring Session

A little downtown Spring family session! 

I should just say Summer because lord knows that Spring in Louisiana very, very short lived! We got about two weeks between what some people call winter and what Louisiana calls Summer. We work with what we get around here though!

This darling couple- Mollie and Andy and their precious little, Skylar made a dreamy little family photography session. I felt like they walked off the pages of a JCREW magazine and right in front of downtown Baton Rouge.

Mollie had the most darling bonnets for Skylar. Again, note JCREW magazine. We of course had a couple bloopers thanks to children under 5 doing what they do best!! Gotta love a spontaneous kiddo.

When it comes to my sessions whether it be a engagement session, family or newborn photography there is always, always the question of "what do I wear??" It seems that making these sorts of decisions for couples and families is labor some. 

I always always tell my clients to think "blending"  not "matching". Matching takes away from the couple or family looking like their unique self!! This is a huge loss to me as a crafter of beautiful photography. Just think of a color scheme and then let everyone be themselves and choose what they are most comfortable in! This seems to be what works best for client sessions in my eye. 

Back to the Merritt's! Like I said, JCREW models making family life look lovely and easy breezy!

We found a little nook by the Capital with some darling flowers in bloom. Skylar was perfect in front of them and starting exploring for four leaf clovers!! Well, that's what I like to think although I am sure she was just terribly fascinated with the itchy grass :) 

She made for a darling little baby photography model though, don't you think?!

It was a perfect little family session and we got to talk babies towards the end! I got all sorts of new baby tips which was so helpful!! It's nice to get the down low from new mamas!! 

So a BIG thank you for choosing me and for sharing all your parent wisdom :) 

Y'all's little Skylar was just a doll!!
