A lazy summer day at the farm with sweet little Madison.

July 1, 2009

What some of us wouldn’t give to experience being a kid again…running around barefoot , playing dress up and picking summer berries…Last week, we had a chance to run around and play with  a sweet 4 your old girl out on the farm. We followed her around as she went out picking raspberries, riding on her little red vintage radio flyer wagon, chasing after bubbles and dragonflies and playing dress up for the afternoon.

When asked to do portrait shoots for children under the age of 5, our approach to the shoot is to play so of course we use “props” or “toys” and do a lot of playing and running around as opposed to sitting still and doing formal photos. It’s always fun to capture a child’s personality as they are…in their natural element doing things they love to do.

Here are a few of our faves from the day:

She loves to pose and we didn’t have to ask for much to get this adorable series below. This is also a new storyboard photo  layout that I recently designed. You can ask for this layout after our portrait session and we will personalize it with your child’s name and choice of background color.


Another new layout I designed for the our “Watch Me Grow” series which can be customized with your favorite photos.

Nothing says summertime like running barefoot on the grass feeling the  summer afternoon breeze on your face and holding a favorite ball.



Getting a ride from daddy in the old red wagon.


Jack had to join in the fun too.


Freshly picked summer raspberries are the best!


One for each finger!




And they’re all gone…
