It Ain't Easy to Photograph Angels!

You've already seen their Pretty Little Girly Dainty Feet, so I thought you'd want to see 
their little faces now.  
You'd think with 3 stunningly gorgeous, angelic little girls I could get fabulous photographs of them with my eyes closed!  But since I rarely go for the 'typical' shot, I really had to think about shooting at unique angles and trying to capture those real moments.  (instead of the fake "say cheese" smiles:)
Here's a few shots that I really thought captured not only their beauty but a little bit of those mischievous personalities too.
This girl was made for pictures! She's cool and chic and I really wanted to portray that in her photos...
Cool Chic
This was my favorite of hers for the whole session...those eyes are just piercing!
I created quite a challenge for myself with the next angel...she's a classic vintage beauty so I really tried hard to show a little sassy with her softness.
Vintage Beauty
Now for the baby, there's just no denying it, she's striking! You can't help but look at her and gasp at how beautiful she is. She's a photographer's dream!
Sweet Baby
Baby Walking
And just a few more of the girls was really hard to get a good one of all 3 of them together...I'm all ears for any tips on how to photograph multiple children together!! But I managed to get a few that were nice...
So I learned a TON with this session and wish I could do it 50 more times because I just kept thinking of more and more creative poses...but their momma was happy with the ones I got and that's the real challenge!

Pretty Little Girly Dainty Feet

Is it weird to do an entire photo session just of feet?
I just couldn't help myself....these baby girls had the absolute cutest little feet ever!  
I couldn't stop taking pictures of them!
Pretty Little Feet
Dirty Feet
Vintage Feet
Tippy Toes
Their faces were honestly just as beautiful as their feet...I'll share pictures of those later:)

Check Me Out

I Have Arrived.
I will now live my life of luxury as was intended from the beginning.  
Or not.
Probably not.
OK, so I'm probably not going to be famous yet, but a fabulous lady with a fabulous blog has asked me to be a Reader Contributor.  Yes, I'm lovin' that I have an official title.  
This was waaaay exciting for me since I love to talk about photography stuff and nobody in my house likes to listen.  Erin at TexasChicksBlogsandPics has an incredibly resourceful website packed with all kinds of tips, tutorials and recommendations for photoshop elements, lightroom and photography in general.  She makes everything very simple to understand which I highly appreciate!
So, if you haven't checked out her site, do it.  And if you want to check out my post, do that too.
You may even learn a thing or two about how you can get great close-up shots of your kids playing sports...kinda like this...
