Life here at DLP has been incredibly busy since baby #3 was born. More parenting, hugging, singing, schooling, cooking, less photography business. Though I still take shoots when I can fit them in! =)
Also more sewing in the evenings, as a creative outlet to help me keep my sanity. Having a girl to sew for makes sewing so much more interesting (and pretty) than the boy sewing ever was!
Recently I’ve been helping pattern designers test their products and taking photos for promotion. The photos are such fun that I thought I would start blogging them here.
Up first is the Kailua Town Dress by Little Lizard King. This is an incredibly quick and easy pattern that combines a knit top with a woven skirt. I used black interlock and a plaid flannel.
The skirt is a bubble with a double ruffle.
Confession… I’ve never appreciated a bubble skirt before, but add the ruffles and suddenly I want to make more!
The knit top has a lovely, feminine neckline and a bit of a curve so that the skirt hits a bit higher in the front.
Look at the cuffs on the sleeves, too. Aren’t they pretty and long?
Love this design.
Ethan was tiny the last time we met. Now he’s a quick-moving big brother with a pretty little sister. It is fun to see families change and grow and love each other. Piedmont Park is gorgeous for playing in the fall. Thank y’all for inviting me back to document your sweet and silly family.
This weekend I spent time getting to know Meyer, his sweet parents, and his super-friendly dog, Emma. Meyer is on the move and has the cutest very-much-a-boy laugh when he gets going. Even Emma got dressed up in her best red collar for the occasion. Thanks for letting me spend the morning with y’all!
Has it been a whole year already since Caroline was born? Now she’s the happiest little thing you ever will see, scooting about in her pretty pink smocked dress and fluffy pink tutu with sass for her one year old photos. We found a fun spot in Alpharetta to explore with her big brother.
I’m a soccer mom now. It’s official. And at one of those sweet soccergames I ran into an old friend in need of some family photos. She picked this beautiful log cabin for the location, built on the site of the original old Milton High School in Alpharetta. Such a neat location with so many great textures.
This family FULL of sweet little ladies was so much fun to shoot. Seriously, these guys are naturals. And did you see the tiny one? In fur? =) Love it.
Thank you for trusting me with your family photos. Your family is beautiful.
This family photography session was so much fun for me! I got to exercise some fun creativity I don’t usually get to play with. Sweet, beautiful little Daana has the neatest family. It is good to be a baby in Atlanta. =)
Another adorable baby boy up on the blog this afternoon. Meet Seth and his sweet family. He’s got the biggest brown eyes, a million expressions, and a cute puppy named Kiki. I love that his mama left his cute feet bare for the photography session.
I got to meet the sweetest new friend this weekend. He’s six months old and very handsome. He also smiles a lot. It was fun for me to shoot some six month portraits for Kaden at Wills Park in Alpharetta. Ready to see the photos?
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your family!! Here are my little loves doing what they do best… Playing busily. We had so much fun putting this photography shoot together, from planning our wardrobe to cutting and gluing felt roses to “planting” the flowers in the open field to pick. I let my children help me and they loved it. And I was rewarded by pleasant faces instead of the scowls my camera often brings to their faces. 😉
I planned to do some fun Valentine’s Day inspired shoots this year, and when I was grocery shopping with my own three kiddos in Walmart a few weeks ago, I knew that I wanted to use these fun heart marshmallows for one of the photo sessions. I had to explain my purchase to my own children in such a way that they understood that they would not be consuming these sweet treats, but rather my photography subjects would. Which, of course, made them want their own pictures taken. =) I’ll post that shoot later.
Most certainly, heart marshmallows bring a lot of great smiles to the faces of children! And these kiddos are so cute with their big brown eyes and spunky personalities.
