Lily, it was such fun meeting you at your family’s photo session!
Lily and her parents
Prior to her session, Lily’s mom sent me a photo of Lily’s lemon shorts that she’d be wearing for part of their session, so I had to bring a few matching lemons to go with. Lily had a lot of fun playing with them during the first part of the session, and it was a good way to get her more comfortable being in front of the camera.
How cute are those lemon shorts and Ohio shirt??
Nothing sour about this one!
Those big brown eyes, ready to explore <3
For the second half of the session, Lily’s parents changed her into a cute black and white striped dress celebrating her second birthday. The tulle tutu part of the dress got Lily excited to twirl for my camera, which allowed me to capture not only posed photos but also some precious candid moments.

I was the lucky person who gave Lily her first lollipop (with parental permission, of course).
Two is such a fabulous age, an age of exploration and observation. Children’s vocabularies start to blossom and they start to really discover the world around them. It’s such a gift to watch my little clients find a wildflower for the first time, or feel the spiky blades of grass poking though their sandals. To me, it’s important to not only remember these moments but to capture them in an image so that when we’re older and the child is grown up, there is something to look back at and smile about. I know my two older children (5.5 and 3.5) love to flip through photos of themselves as babies and see what they looked like and what they used to do for fun.
