A Little More Green Please – Lavender Mini Family Session

Most of the lavender had been harvested at the Lavender Wind Farm in Coupeville since it’s close to the end of the season, but there were a still a few rows available for my last two sessions there. This lovely family requested to have more “green” than purple. And so we headed to the harvested area where there were a few stems of purple on each bushel. Just enough to give a little bit of purple, but not too much.

I have been photographing this family annually for years. Since the first pregnancy, each newborn and first birthday. They are one of my favorite families that I look forward to seeing every year. Well, last year was skipped. We all just got too busy and never got to get it done. But not this year! Mom & dad took advantage of the warm weather and the beautiful fields. As always, the kids were great. As they get older, each personality comes out more and more. Lots of silly faces along with smiles. And of course, they knew when they were done. It was a lot of fun though!

Sweet Sisters – Lavender Mini Session

The littlest sister was a little too young for our Bathing Beauties set, so mom opted for a simple session in the Lavender field. We had had a streak of very hot days here on our island. So we had to wait one extra day for the weather to cool a bit more before we headed out to the field. This gave the bees a chance to do their pollinating thing and then go to sleep while we walked throughout the field. We didn't bother them and they didn't bother us. It did get chilly fast so we had to speed things a bit. The littlest one hung on as long as she could but after about 30 minutes, she was ready to be cuddled and warm. So we finished up and everyone went home to get pj's on and stay warm. It was a great evening!

Happiest Baby Ever – Lavender Bathing Beauty Mini Session

Baby A volunteered as a model so that I could test out an idea I had. As many know, I offer this vintage Bathing Beauties session in studio every year. But this time, I wanted to take it outside and the fields at the Lavender Wind Farm seemed perfect for it. So I sent out a model call and we did the session a few days later. Being close to sunset, it was quite breezy. But luckily for us, it was a warm breeze so our little model was comfy the whole time. She was happy to explore the tub, accessories and the lavender. She was so sweet and easy to work with. After we finished the need bath images, we changed her into two other outfits. She stayed happy and full of smiles the whole time.

Big thanks to mom for helping out my assistant with the reflector towards the end as it got a little windier. Otherwise, it probably would have flew away.

All the Purple – Mini Session

This little lady is my daughter’s best friend. She lives in our neighborhood and they are always together giggling and being silly. Like my daughter, she is not a big fan of being photographed. This was my second time working with her and I could tell she was much more comfortable this time. Not sure if it was because she knows how I work or if it was the soothing lavender smell that relaxed her. Whatever it was… it was perfect. We met over at the Lavender Wind Farm in Coupeville around 8:00pm and got right to it. The sun was still pretty bright but we worked around it as it gradually began to set. I was able to get bright and fun along with dramatic glows of gold. Big thanks to mom who helped out my assistant with holding a reflector. It got pretty breezy and my reflector is pretty big so it was such a big help to have a second set of hands to keep it from flying away.

Thank you for choosing me for this fun and beautiful session! I can’t wait to see these printed out. They are going to be so perfect.

Missing You – OpLove Mid-Deployment Session

Deployment is something my family knows very well. I have been a military spouse for 21 years now and no matter how many deployments we have been through, it’s never easy and never something you get used to. Being a part of Operation: Love Reunited gives me the opportunity to give back to other military spouses in my area. I offer free pre and mid-deployment sessions for military families throughout the year. The theme is always patriotic and the goal is to capture to LOVE. Each session includes a free set of 15 images (chosen by the family) to send to the military member while he is away. If you would like to schedule an OpLove session with me, click HERE for more information.

I was contacted by this family for a mid-deployment session. Husband/Dad is currently deployed and so this session’s goal is to send him some images to bring a smile to his face. He is missed, he is loved and his girls are anxiously waiting for his return.
