A Princess Tea Party & more… Lake City FL Family Portrait Photographer | Lake City FL Child Portraits

Back in June (I am SO far behind on blogging, lol), I photographed one of my daughter’s best friends for her 4th birthday. Early morning at one of our gorgeous local parks (seriously, these parks in the morning have AMAZING light….absolute perfection).

Her mother had mentioned a few ideas & asked if I could get a wash tub, but it wasn’t till I got there I knew exactly what her mom had in mind. I take ZERO credit for this concept. It was all her mom (& a little bit Pintrest I hear, lol). I love when clients have ideas they picture in their heads & want me to make a reality. I love themes, fun ideas, fun props, all you creative parents out there bring. 😉

Miss Allie did beautifully & enjoyed herself (with multiple clothing changes per her request). I have been photographing her since she was two & it’s amazing to watch these cuties grow. I love my clients. I love that they come back to me. I love that I get to watch their children grow each year. I love what I do.

Look Who’s 2 :: A Diva in Training <3 Lake City FL Child Portrait Photographer | Child Portraits in Lake City FL

Earlier this month I captured this adorable red haired beauty. Seriously, she’s a 2 year old with one of the best communication skills I have seen! So talkative & so fun. Filled with attitude, excitement & all things wonderful about being 2.  Her mom was listing to me the outfits she had so we decided on a 3 in 1 session…..One for her love of books, one for her love of the Gators (Go Gators!) & one for her little divaliciousness… 😉

They turned out awesome & she did amazing! Laughing & playing & just having a good time. Which always makes for great portraits.  Such a little darling!

Thank you so much Ferris clan for sharing your little beauty (ok, so she’s my sisters niece on the other side…so it’s kinda like family & Kylie loves her…but what’s not to love?) If you enjoyed this post be sure to comment, share it, tweet it or even Pin it!
