Since I’m so far behind in blogging, I’m going to share this cuties last two sessions. I’ve been photographing Miss Whitney since she was in her mama’s tummy. After her newborn photos, we met for each of her milestones, so I literally watched her grow up in front of the camera. When I finished her one year session, I felt sad knowing I wouldn’t see her in three months.
The first set of photos is from her nine month session. This was in August. We decided since it had been such a hot summer that we would just meet inside at the Franklin Park Conservatory. These are my favorite photos of her from all of the sessions! Previously, her mama was disappointed at how serious Whitney was during her photo sessions, since she’s typically a smiley little girl. That’s why I love this session so much, because we see all sides of her little personality. The water was her favorite! The photo of her on her tip-toes, she’s looking into the pond of Japanese Koi. I didn’t think we’d ever get her away from that spot! Then, she found the water fountain and realized it was the right height for her to actually touch the water. She made some hilarious faces in those shots! My favorite may be the last one, but I love them all.
I am sad though when I look back at how awesome these photos are, because I’m reminded that I can’t photograph inside of the Conservatory anymore. They no longer offer the photographer membership I had. My membership expired in November, and it has been very difficult for me to photograph anyone other than newborns and small children because of that. Hopefully, one day I’ll have a studio and all of that won’t matter! Until then, here’s Whitney’s awesome nine month photos…
Whitney’s birthday is in November, so you would assume it would be too cold to be outside. Per Ohio’s typical weird and unpredictable weather, it was actually nice out. We were able to take some family shots sitting on the front steps of their house. For Whitney’s solo photos we used some of my backdrops inside of their home. Her daddy has always called her “sweets” so that was the theme of her party and we incorporated it into the session. She wasn’t a huge fan of that tutu as you’ll see in the one photo, but as soon as we put candy in front of her she was all smiles! Whitney stayed true to her “sweets” nickname as she very sweetly offered to share her smarties during the session 🙂 I also love her little outfit with the Ugg boots. I always look forward to seeing what mom has picked out for her to model.
I still keep up with Miss Whitney through social media, but as I said, it is weird to not see her every three months. Maybe she needs a sibling, so I can see them more often again 😉
