Our girls' dance studio hires a photographer to come in and do studio portraits every year, but I have never been happy with them, so have started also taking my own. This is one of the only times Kayla gets excited about taking pictures, because she loves the pretty costumes and make-up she gets to wear only a few times each year, for pictures and the recital. Cassidy is always my good little model and likes to try different poses and expressions, but even Kayla got into it this year! I love the one of the two of them because it shows their personalities so well, even if the pose would be more appropriate for hip hop than ballet! When Cassidy saw it, she said "That's my favorite...it's like, 'Bam! We're the best sister's ever!'" I love that they are so close!
I think 1 year/ cake smash shoots are my favorite. I love this age. It is so much fun! And who can resist a little one covered in frosting???
Landon is the son of good friends and was the first newborn I photographed besides my own. I can't believe that was already a year ago. Isn't he a doll? He wasn't so sure about the cake, but got messy enough anyway!
I can't believe my first baby is already 6. Looking at these photos, I realize how grown up she is becoming. You can tell she is a true photographer's daughter because she did most of her own posing and was so excited to see the end result!
