It’s my first official photo post, woo hoo! Plus, it’s my gorgeous niece Harper who I’m sure you are familiar with if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram. I’ve been doing mini shoots for her every three months since she’s been born. I’m currently putting together a package for first year minis for all of my clients so that you guys can also capture all of those precious first year milestones. I’m still just figuring out the best way to do it, payment and package wise.
We did Harper’s shoot at the park, around 9 in the morning. My preference is to shoot during the golden hour which is the hour before sunset but since it’s summertime and the sun sets really late, I’ve been doing a lot of shoots early morning in shady areas to avoid the heat and harsh sun. Also to keep those little babes happy because we all know kiddos tend to be happiest in the morning before anything has a chance to bum them out.
Harper is at a fun stage right now. She’s crawling, babbling, laughing, waving and all sorts of other new things. The best part? The way we got those big giggle smiles on the day bed was by her mom sternly saying, “no!” One of most difficult tasks of parenting is holding back our own giggles when kiddos are being bad in the most hilarious ways. This was one of those moments for sure.
