vince & sofia | valentine's mini session

Thursday, February 7, 2013

How sweet are these two?! Originally, I met Vince and Sofia at Southford Falls for our mini session. Naturally, it was way too cold and we couldn't get any smiles out of them! They came over to my little "studio" this weekend for a much warmer photo shoot. Here are a few of the many amazing photos I was able to capture!


seila visits grandma!

Some of you might remember Seila from her newborn session! I was so excited when her grandma called me to schedule a Valentine's Day mini session! Normally, I'm afraid to shoot at other people's homes because I never know what the lighting situation will be. Thankfully, there was plenty of pretty light at Seila's grandma's house. I just love the way all of these photos came out. I love the natural lighting and how it's imperfect. I love the yellow light from the windows. I love her little expressions, adorable outfit and curly hair! Seila is so sweet. She sat right on my lap and wanted to play with my camera. I'm amazed at how big she has gotten and I can't wait to see her again.

Sisters. A phenomenon that I will never ever fully comprehend. If you’re not privileged enough to have one- hopefully this blog post will be somewhat amusing while still making you fully aware of what you’re missing out on.

I come home tonight, hang up my coat and sit on the couch just about to kick my feet up, when all of a sudden I hear a creaking noise coming from my room. Immediately I knew it was my almost 16-year-old sister, probably rummaging through my closet, my make-up or just taking iPhone selfies in my mirror. I bolt up the stairs swing open my door and sure enough there she is, digging through my clothes. “Do you have a pencil skirt I can wear?”

Yes, I have a pencil skirt, but can she wear it? No. Definitely not. Not a chance. Starring at her in anger I notice that she’s wearing the EXACT same hot pink lipstick that I had bought a few days ago. She had bought her own. So, if she’s not stealing my stuff, she’s buying herself the exact same things.

The weirdest thing is, no matter how much I hate what she does, it never ever changes how much I love her or how much I miss her when she’s not around. She is the most strong willed, captivating, and beautiful person I know. Although I would STRONGLY prefer if she never touched any of my stuff, she is perfect in my eyes and I love everything about her. As we prepare for her Sweet 16, I can’t believe how quickly time has passed. Even now as I type this I can hear her strumming her guitar and singing Taylor Swift. It seems like it was just yesterday we were playing doll house. Sure, I’d have all my stuff to myself, but I just can’t imagine my life without her.
