The winter months are always slow for me in the photography world, because I don’t have a studio. I’ll mostly be working my Physical Therapy job and photographing newborns only until Spring arrives. The plus side is that maybe I can get my blog caught up!
Meet the Lay family. I photographed them for the first time when their son was 18 months old. Now, they have a little girl, so we meet again to capture family photos at her 18 month milestone.
We met at the Franklin Park Conservatory for the photo session. Prior to the session, mom had told me that her little girl loved shoes. I was so excited about this! I have a purple high heel shoe chair that I knew would be perfect for this session! We did all of the family photos first, then ended with the shoe chair. I also brought a couple pairs of my shoes for her to play with. We didn’t get very many smiles with the shoes, because she was so focused on trying them on. Father’s Day was right around the corner when we met for photos, so I took a special sign for a father-daughter photo. It turned out super cute!
I love how the photos show each child’s individual personality. Their son is a jokester, which you can really see in his spiderman photos! While their daughter is more on the serious side. I always really like serious photos of children, so I love all of her photos.
