Cait and Talia | Friends

Last week, I took my sister and her friend out for a quick "friend" photoshoot at Danada Equestion Center. I was dressed in a thick winter coat, gloves, a hat, scarf, and my "boots with the fur" - and was still freezing! Just look what these gals were wearing!
I have to give them props for being so tough and braving the cold, with gorgeous smiles and all. I really love how the photos turned out, despite my frozen little hands. Friend shoots are lots of fun!
Oh yes... and we did this in about 20 minutes. ;) I think it took the whole ride home and then some for everyone to thaw out. But it was worth it.

Madison | Christmas Portraits

Here is one of my favorite little girls, a sweet and sharp 3 year old from my church. I've photographed her for fun in the past, but this time her mom hired me for some portraits to put on their family Christmas card. Madison was dressed in a beautiful velvet green dress and bow, and she was all smiles. Well, that is, until she started to get a little impatient and antsy. But, c'mon, she's barely 4! And I think she did wonderful. ;) The photos prove it. I was so happy to get their Christmas card in the mail and see my work collaged all over it.

Thank you, Maddie, for being such a great girl! I absolutely love the last two, and their artsiness. I'm learning that you can take even an upset little child and create a beautiful photo.
