Oh, my child. She's a free spirit, full of personality, and loves to explore. We were working in our garden when she started playing in the evening sun. Of course, I hauled ass in to the house, grabbed my camera, and let her do her thing for the 10 minutes before bed.
So we did a short trip to Edisto island and happened upon this hidden gem with our family (14 of us!). I knew I had to come back with my camera to capture the beauty and adventure this place had to offer. Giant shells in perfect shape, fallen bleached trees with a backdrop of palms lined behind them, tiny tide pools for the kids to splash in, formations of seagulls flying overhead endlessly. I couldn't get enough! We only spent an hour there but I could've sat there all day with a book and my thoughts. Here are some of the carefree, unposed memories I was able to capture.
We try to hit up the sunflower fields each year and while they always end up being my favorite images of my children, the ever-growing crowds are becoming unpleasant. I waited until the last 20 minutes of sunlight to capture this series of my little ones. The colors, richness, and connection OWN my heart. We're moving soon and I'm thinking I need to make a wall collage from this series!
I cannot deal with this chub! Olive is such a personality...she lights up a room whenever she enters. I definitely think she's our creative soul.
I always know how I want colors in my photos from the beginning of shooting. These definitely needed a warm, film-like, light and airy feel to them. I absolutely love this series and one of her images was featured over at The Happy Togs insta!
I know I've featured these images over on my facebook a ton but I love this little series so much!
Aside from tidying my bathroom (ahem, hahahaha), all of these images were taken in 5-7 minutes and I get to love them forever. Little moments like these can be found all over your home which is what makes a lifestyle session so much fun! A sink bath, baking cookies, reading in a nook, playing in the backyard, jumping in puddles, and creating larger than life stories with imagination. Let me take a glimpse in to your little world and freeze time for you!
