This was a great winter for portraits! It was so mild, and there was so little snow, that I was shooting outdoors through January! But, wouldn't you know that on a warm sunny Saturday, I arrived at the shoot location to be met with SNOW! The warmer weather made the pretty white flakes a wet mess. Even though Kylie and Savannah were troopers, we only shot for about 30 minutes before I said, "Let's reshoot when it's sunny and warmer!" Everyone was eager to pack it in and warm up!
Fast forward to last Saturday which was a little chilly, but dry and SUNNY! Best of all, we had the golden hour sunlight that every photographer lives for: dreamy golden light that halos the children and casts a warm glow on everything. I am always giddy when I find it during one of my sessions!
First up was Kylie. She is an adorably fun and mischievous imp! The only way to get her to do what we wanted was to tell her NOT to do it. (Fortunately, I have my own 4-year-old imp at home, so I know how to work with them:). But her giggles and joy made us all laugh along with her and her shots are great!
Next up was Savannah and she is as quiet and shy as Kylie is loud and fun! She is also a grandma's girl and basked in grandma's attention. I love seeing that:)
My favorite images though are the ones of the sisters together. They just adore each other and we didn't have to coax them to show that to us!
I'm thankful for the opportunity to capture not only each girl's personality, but their sister love!
