mia-110wmIt’s a little hard to believe that this young lady was just a few months shy of two years old when I first met her.  Her mother was my old college dance coach and I was so excited when she asked me to take some pictures of Miss Mia. What better way to capture her personality at this age than a fun photo shoot in her element.  I had such a hard time picking my favorites.  Luckily, Mia is gorgeous and very easy on the eyes!mia-5wmmia-12wmmia-15wmmia-19wmmia-24wmmia-44wmmia-46wmmia-49wmmia-52wmmia-56wm.jpgmia-60wmmia-67wmmia-68wmmia-79wmmia-87wmCan’t NOT have a picture with the baby bro (and Gus).  LOVE!mia-94wmmia-96wmmia-101wmmia-104wmmia-114wmmia-117wmmia-118wmmia-128wmmia-133wmmia-138wmmia-142wmThis is why I love photography.  It captures a certain moment in time.  This was so much fun!  Thank you, Pam, for the opportunity.

Now, bring me all the tweens!

malaiya-24wmWhen I first met this girl, she was about 5 years old.  I can’t believe she’s graduating this year!  I was so happy when her Mom (my friend) asked me to take her beautiful daughter’s senior pictures.  Malaiya is a talented dancer.  Having danced back in the day, I was very excited for this session because it means combining two of my favorite things – photography and dancing.  It was hard for me to narrow down just a few, so please don’t mind if I overshare!malaiya-5wmmalaiya-16wmmalaiya-13wmmalaiya-31wmmalaiya-27wmmalaiya-29wmmalaiya-42wmmalaiya-50wmmalaiya-57wmmalaiya-89wmmalaiya-73wmmalaiya-67wmmalaiya-100wmmalaiya-110wmmalaiya-113wmmalaiya-119wmmalaiya-116wmmalaiya-120wmmalaiya-128wmmalaiya-145wmmalaiya-166wmmalaiya-155wmmalaiya-160wmmalaiya-158wmmalaiya-162wmmalaiya-168wmmalaiya-169wmmalaiya-187wmmalaiya-180wmmalaiya-172wmmalaiya-137wmMalaiya is a perfect reminder to “do what you love.”  Dancing is her passion and she’ll be dancing her way through college.  Congratulations on your senior year!  You make your Mama proud!

It was a very cold and windy November day and this gang hung in there.  At least we had some delicious light and a few good smiles from that little man!
