One of my big goals this year is to take more pictures of my own family. And to actually edit and share those pictures! I spend a lot of hours on the computer, so I tend to procrastinate on editing pictures of my daughter, and then it never gets done! So when we did a little morning mini Valentine’s shoot on Friday, I made it a priority to actually edit and share them!
My daughter recently turned four and I am loving this age. It’s a little bittersweet because she is officially a big girl, there is no toddler left. But it is so amazing seeing her develop into her own little person. And a big plus to this age is lately she is less difficult to photograph. I always tell my clients about how my daughter is my most difficult subject. She tends to run from me, avoid eye contact, cross her eyes, stick her tongue out. Pretty much doing anything but whatever cute thing she was doing prior to me getting out my camera. But on this particular day she was REALLY excited for me to take her picture. I think all the fun props helped. Afterwards she said “Mommy, I had so much fun taking pictures”. I think that was a first. And I love how these pictures turned out. They really capture her silly and sweet personality.
I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s day! Here is my little Valentine on (what she calls) “heart day”:
It’s funny how the unplanned sessions I do with my daughter are always my favorite. Maybe it is because I’m kind of a fly by the seat of my pants sort of girl, but I just love the simplicity and spontaneity of the “pick up and go” sessions. On this late August afternoon, I glanced out the window to see some beautiful light shining in our backyard. So I threw a cute plaid dress on my girl, grabbed my camera, and off we went. I think the images really capture her curious and adventurous nature. One of the pictures show her looking down a turtle hole in our yard. Lately she has been watching a lot of Alice and Wonderland. She stood starring down this hole for a good 15 seconds, then looks at me and says “no mommy, I too big.” In the picture you can just see her wheels turning as she thinks about climbing “down the rabbit hole” like Alice.
I hope to leave you inspired to take more simple and spontaneous pictures of your little ones!
Thanks for reading! Wishing everyone a lovely September!
I am so excited to announce that Oh Lovely Day Photography is now Rebecca Luisi Photography. It is a little bittersweet, but I am really excited about the future. I feel the new name will be easier for my clients and for the business side of things. Along with the new name, there is a new web address (www.rebeccaluisi.com), some changes in branding, and a few price adjustments.
Did you know I offer the gorgeous Organic Bloom frames? They are so much fun and one of my favorite ways to display pictures in my home. They come in 16 different shapes, and 53 colors. There are also many specialty items, including small ornament frames for the holidays. They are available to everyone (not just clients).
I hope you like all of the changes! Let me know if you would like to see the new price list.
