Once all of my props were ready, I could not wait to get started with these precious back-to-school mini shoots! My first shoot was on one of the hottest days of the week with the thermometer sitting right at 100 degrees. I found a nice spot in our backyard under the trees (so it wouldn't feel like 110) and lit a few citronella candles to keep the mosquitos away (we live on the water and deal with those things even in daylight).
Eliza (6) and Alaina (4) arrived with their mom, Stacey, for their 30 minutes mini-session looking absolutely adorable and dressed for the first day of school. I could not have asked for two more perfect subjects - so cooperative and giving me their best smiles every time! I did separate poses of both of the girls and then we ended with the two sisters smiling together. (And, thank you, Stacey, for even catching a few of me in action!)
From now until September 23rd, I'll be doing mini-sessions just like this one on Thursday and Friday afternoons from 3-6. Shoot me an email to schedule your appointment! Preschool, kindergarten, First, Second . . . they are only this little once. I would love to capture this time in their lives for you.
