Soo, my blogging skills have been next-to-nonexistent up to this point. I started once about a year ago, and let it become so drastically out of date that I eventually gave up and deleted the entire thing. I’m starting fresh here, with two of the most dynamic kids in town.
Skylar and Alyssa were a blast – and I knew it was going to be a great session before they even showed up. When Skylar’s mom called me to schedule the shoot, she said that the kids would be dressed up for the session. When I asked how dressed up, she told me that Skylar had what he was referring to as his “birthday suit.” She said all he wanted for his birthday was a suit. A real suit. So he would be wearing the suit and Alyssa would be in a cute dress. The fact that Skylar wanted a “real suit” for his birthday made me smile, because one of my brothers was just like this when he was younger. For years, all we wanted was a tie. A real tie. In fact; when I got married, he asked my parents if they could just buy his tuxedo instead of renting it so he could wear it whenever he wanted. Skylar’s request for a suit definitely struck a chord with me, and boy, he rocked that thing! By the end of the session, my cheeks were aching from grinning at his cool-guy routine.
Alyssa wasn’t nearly as focused on her outfits and keeping a posed face on… which was great with me! We alternated between little giggles and huge laughs the entire time. Between her grin and those gorgeous green eyes, I couldn’t stop pressing the shutter! So, without further ado, here are a couple of my favorites!
