Princess Sessions for Girls

I recently have become obsessed with girls boutique gowns for my sessions; not only are they absolutely gorgeous but I can also use them in studio for newborn or toddler sessions.

My best friend has the most gorgeous kid with the prettiest blue eyes and I asked if she would let her be my model; she said yes and magic happened! 

So we went to the arboretum at sunset and I got some gorgeous natural sunflare backlit images. 

Of course my son came a I got some lovely images of him as well. 

A lot of people don't know but my son was born with a rare congenital heart defect where he, in basic terms, does not have the entire left side of his heart, and the parts he does have are extremely small. So he has had three open heart surgeries so far and needs more in the future. This last surgery that he just had in April left him with two moderate strokes in his brain, which affected the left side of his body. Most people probably wouldn't notice it in he pictures but you can see it in the left side, and well, I'm always up for spreading awareness, so I will share those images with you as well :) 

What else have I been up to? Well I've had a few more newborn sessions, and also did a cake smash. 

I have a few weddings coming up at the end of this summer as well which I cannot wait for!

And more sessions means upgrading my gear :D

Cannot wait to get my new lenses and camera body!!
