Spring 2015 part 1

June 6, 2015


I picked up this chair from the thrift store for $3 and I knew I wanted to use it for mini sessions. It had to be reupholstered because it was missing a seat cushion and it would've been impossible to find late 70's yellow fabric to sew a new cushion! The wooden part was a dark stain and it went well with the yellow fabric, which would've been great for minis in the Fall, but like I said, it didn't have that cushion, so I had an excuse for another project! Things happen for a reason because this chair was great for a beach setting AND it goes great in the corner of my dining room! Win-win :)


I had the pleasure of using my chair as a setting for 8 families so far, for Spring minis. I wanted to shoot during the last hour of sunlight, so I had to break the sessions up to 3 families a night and I'm still shooting (my next set of sessions will be June 14th). 


The first family is the English family. A sweet family of 6... mama, daddy, THREE boys and a sweet baby girl...




The next family is the Mabry family. A stunning mommy/daughter duo...



...and pup too!


The Blount family is 2 seemingly laid back parents and a very spunky daughter! She was all over the place and it took her a minute to trust me... But when she did, magic happened!





Last, but not least is the Toms family. I thought the little girl in the last session was spunky and full of energy, but the little boy in this family had her beat! He was full of smiles though and was a perfect compliment to his two older sisters and their pretty smiles.
