I’ve photographed this family since Carter was born, and the second baby is just as gorgeous as the first.  Such a difference though for Zoe’s cake smash – she was a little lady and just crouched down to take bites, at her big brother’s on the other hand? He sat in his :)  It got pretty chilly around 7 (of course!) but the breeze died down and we had a lot of varing sunlight colors coming in – each photo is so unique in that the light changes so quickly a that hour. Instead of trying to “make them all look the same”, I’ve embraced just letting them be and I’m much happier letting go of that “control”.  This session was a combo of a first birthday celebration and family session so I have quite a few images to filter through, but I was diggin all the color so much and with it being kind of drab out today, I thought it appropriate to post:)

Lot’s going on – the new space is getting framed in as I type this, the Mother’s Day event (see two posts prior for info or find it on DLP’s facebook) seems to be growing, and I have a package in the grand auction tonight at the CEDF Auction.  I probably shouldnt admit I’m horrified over this… but I am.  I hope it brings in some change for the schools – but I do not like bright lights and stuff so I’m staying away from the auction tonight in the event it begins and no one bids, I dont have to be publicly humiliated. Blargh.  Does this exhibit a lack of confidence? Sorry – I am human after all!

Have a great weekend, I think I’ve responded to everyone who’s inquired about sessions – if I missed you, nudge me. I never intend it.
