Kendra and I went to school together and I've known her for a good half of my life. Life went on and we each had kid(s) moved a pretty far distance from our home, but photography brought us back together! I'm so excited to show off photos from her session and her beautiful daughter who will be turning 3 soon!
We started off in the forest with these boho-style-inspired outfits that Kendra had gotten for the family. Seriously, I need little Ava's outfit in my size!
Despite the rain that we both panicked over continuously, we kept checking back every few minutes and seeing if it would lighten up. We took photos in small increments and would run out, snap a few, then run back under cover when it picked back up. Luckily, after a while, the rain stopped altogether and we were able to pull out some beautiful shots!
I was so in love with their choice of a flower crown. It made a perfect set-up for those adorable Mommy-and-Me photos that I knew I'd have to get!
My favorite photos are the ones that show who people are rather than what they look like. The shot below, I was ecstatic to get while Ava and her Mommy played together!
I may or may not have bribed her with Smarties to change and take photos in this outfit. But how adorable are those sparkles?! She's most definitely a princess!
I'm so happy she contacted me a couple months back and expressed how much she wanted me to document this fun time in her little one's life. I mean, it's not every day you turn 3 years old! It was a blast catching up with someone from back home, and seeing how much little Ava has grown. Even though at first Mother Nature didn't want to cooperate, I think we had an adorable outcome with lots of smiles!
