It was so fun exploring UC Santa Cruz with this soon-to-be married couple! We didn't let the heavy drizzle that decided to join us slow us one bit. Can't wait for their May wedding, hopefully these showers will bring the flowers!
Since I am jetting off this weekend to New York for my Sister's Baby Shower, I thought it only fitting to do a Wardrobe Wednesday in honor of my little niece that I can't wait to meet! Affectionately nicknamed Dazzle until she makes her worldly debut :)
I was in Baby Gap today doing a little bit of shopping for her and I just love all the great onesies they have right now! They all have adorable or cheeky sayings on them. This long sleeve onesie paired with baby jogging and polka dot shoes will make a perfect outfit for her 9 month session!
So I am admittedly lame at submitting images for competition. Something I am working on improving during 2015. Starting with the image below. I have submitted it to the NAPCP Image Competition. Wish me luck! It will be critiqued no matter what so I can't wait to hear what the judges think.
This image is of my 5 year old nephew Emmett (4 at the time the image was shot). He is both a total love and a total wrecking ball at times :) He is bigger than he knows. I titled this image The Woodworker's Son because the focus of this shoot was actually the beautiful play house my Brother-in-Law built for my niece but she was feeling less than cooperative in the photo shoot department so her brother happily stood in. Today my sister shared with us an assignment Emmett is working on in Kindergarten, writing non-fiction stories. As a part of the assignment he had to list things he's an "expert" in.
He is as sweet as this image illustrates. Having great subject matter goes a long way in creating beautiful photographs and I hope that is reflected here.
