Old McDonald wanted his farm...

November 05, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I have enjoyed the on set of new clients and the referrals that I am getting.  It is to be honest, a little over whelming at times but I couldn't be happier.  I love the fact that my clients feel free to tell me what they are expecting. I really like to incorporated what they would like into my sessions.  If you want vintage...farmy (is that a word)... or if you are just sisters and your having your portraits done together, I will make sure that a few images reflect that.
 

Case in point Mr. L (Old McDonald himself) loves the farm and singing his favorite song. Mom shared that Mr. L. sings Old McDonald had a farm..all the time. Since Mr. L was turning 3, mom wanted a few images to reflect his birthday, his love of the farm and a few family images of all three of them together..(I mean all 4 baby sister is on the way).  We met on a Monday late afternoon and the weather well it was just perfect. When Mr. L got out of the car he was ready to go..all smiles from head to two.

I knew right from the start that he was going to be easy.  All I had to do was just let him be himself.  I gave him a wheel barrow and he was off doing what farmers do...sitting in it....pushing it..and pushing it...he would just keep talking about his farm.

We wanted images to reflect his third birthday....I think we couldn't have asked for more....He acted like a 3 year old...the images below well they are priceless...

Seriously the next image is just to sweet...this little guy has eyes that every photographer dreams of...

 I believe that a child has an unconditional love for their parents...a love that cannot really be described into words... they look right through your outer being and look straight into your soul...they look at you with such love and kindness.. to me it is breath taking....  Mr. and Mrs. B always remember that when little L. looks at you and laughs with you he doesn't care of what or where or how...he just cares that he can spend time with you.  Thank you so much for sharing your evening with me.  I truly enjoyed myself watching the three of you together.  I noticed when his smile was the biggest is when you three were hand in hand or playing together...

Psalms 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Loved this family for sure....
