Miss Adrie Mae just had her blessing day set for June so she needed some new pictures to go along with the Blessing Invitations. She was all smiles and sat up SO well! She’s 5 months old but she’s been sitting with little help for a month. We piled some boppy pillows behind her and that was all the help she needed. So not only was I impressed with her being able to sit up so well but her eyes too! I will totally raise my hand and swear under oath that I didn’t do any editing to enhance her eye color! In some of the pictures I actually had to tone them down a bit because they photographed so brilliant and you’d all accuse me of over editing her eyes! haha

Smithfield Health Days

May 11th, 2010

I had the opportunity to help with photographing Smithfield’s Health Days last weekend! I’d never been before and I had a bit of a struggle trying to find the place but I was pleasantly surprised to meet right off the bat a really sweet woman on our way into the fair grounds! People in Smithfield are super friendly! Although, I must admit that even though I was supposed to be covering a few events and the booths when I was editing my pictures I realized that 99% of my pictures were of kids! I guess it just confirms that I’m in the right genre of photography…Children! Here are a few of my favorites!

Oh my gosh! This girl is 11, that’s right ELEVEN! And she is this gorgeous! Why didn’t I look like this at her age?? Can you imagine the security system her parents are going to have to install when she’s getting close to dating age? All those boys are going to be lined up at her door just waiting!

We had so much fun with this shoot. I’ve been wanting to do a Princess and the Frog picture session for ages but I hadn’t had the right girl. I told her the idea and she was right on board! She gave me er opinion on the dress and I did her hair (although her mom did spend and hour curling it so I can’t take all the credit!) After I saw her I said, “Ashlee! You’re going to have to come up with a secret name because everyone is going to want you to model for them!” Without missing a beat she replied that she already had one, “Luna Salentine”. So…here’s so introducing Princess Luna Salentine and her handsome frog prince! :D
