Face Painting Fun {Mandeville La Photographer ~ Fine Art Children’s Portraits}

We went to a local event called Touch a Truck, where the kids got to climb into different types of vehicles. At the event, they had face painting. We waited in line for 45 minutes, but it was worth the wait! Their faced turned out fantastic. So much that my first thought was to put them in pretty dresses, ignore the mid-day sun, ad get some gorgeous images of them with their face paint.

I happened to have an old bouquet from another project that matched the color of the flowers perfectly. Pair that with a Dollcake mint dress from my dress closet, and it created the perfect set up for my youngest.

My older daughter had to have a rainbow cat, which happened to match a pretty blue dress she had. Pair it with a rainbow headband my youngest daughter was given for her birthday, and I had the purr-fect cat set up! As she was looking through the images, before I edited any of them, she saw the “fierce” cat look and exclaimed “Oh! It’s perfect”. I had to edit that one special for her!

Vintage Classic {Terrebonne Parish La – Fine Art Children’s Photographer}

Absolutely loved the outfit mom picked out for her young man. I adore the vintage newsboy look, complete with hat, suspenders and bow tie. I went with more classic poses for his session and when he picked up a stick and pretended to “fish”, I decided to enhance our little creek and add a line and fish to create a classic little boy fishing image.

Wildflower {Algiers Point La – Fine Art Children’s Photographer}

The wildflowers are in bloom, creating the perfect backdrop for this beauties 5 year old session.  Pared with a Cozette Couture dress and a silver lace crown from Olive and Egglant, she makes a stunning beauty, wise beyond her years, yet full of childhood spunk!  To add some spring fun, we added a gorgeous dried butterfly.  Who doesn’t love wildflowers and butterflies!  With a spring birthday, both represent new life and rebirth.  Not to mention she was a trooper, dealing with a few bumblebees and flies, but it made for a good life lesson.  If you leave the bees alone, they will leave you alone.

Pugs and Pups {New Orleans – Fine Art Children’s Photographer}

Mom and I planned an urban feel to this session, complete with jeans, a graphic tee and a sport jacket. It was just a coincidence that his mom brought their pup to the session as well. Once I saw her, I just had to use her. She was too good to pass up with him wearing a Pug shirt!

In between shots, he was a character and enjoyed laughing or busting out his own pose. The dancing shot was originally in the scrap pile but I loved it too much, so I asked mom what his favorite animal was. “Boogie Nights” was born!

Fireflys About {NOLA Photographer – Fine Art Chidren’s Photographer}

I had the pleasure of photographing this dapper young man. His mom picked out a vintage inspired seersucker suit with complimenting suspenders and a pink bow-tie. He was so excited to have his pictures taken, and enjoyed looking a few images I showed him o the back of the camera. At one point he asked if his pictures could be hung in his house, I referred him to his mom, but he is a boy of my heart! That’s right, it’s important to have prints hanging in your home and to pass down to future generations!

At the end of the session, I handed him a glass jar and asked him to pretend to catch lightening bugs, not thinking they don’t live around here!  Ooops.  His parents and I had to show him what to do.  He did a fantastic job!

Easter Lamb {Covington la – Fine Art Children’s Portrait Photographer}

This will most likely be the last year my youngest will fit into the Easter Jacket my grandma sewed for me when I was their age. I wanted to do something pretty and fun with it. I took her out for a sunset session in her sisters white dress and the Easter Jacket, using my doggy as a stand in lamb to get the perfect natural pose from her. The first 3 images were ones I loved as is, the last one, was my vision, “The Easter Lamb”.

Fanta-Sea Mermaids {Louisiana Fine Art Children’s Portrait Photography and Composite Photography)

When your daughter asks to be a mermaid with a castle full of mermaids and a turtle, you oblige.  Ariel even made a cameo, hanging out under the arch and behind the bush.

Serengeti Safari {Composite Photographer}

I was out working on a special project with my youngest daughter and my older daughter wanted to be involved as well. I asked her what her favorite zoo animal was. Her answer, a giraffe! The west Texas landscape, with the addition of a tree, created the perfect “Serengeti Safari” backdrop for this creation!

Unicorns! {Houma La – Fine Art Photographer}

I asked my daughter what her fantasy was. Her response was a unicorn. She wanted to see herself riding a unicorn. After searching stock images, I finally had my vision complete! Winter wonderland fantasy! She loves it and so do I 🙂

Here Fishy {Thibodeaux La Photographer}

I took this image this past fall during one of my Couture Kids Sessions. I had always thought it needed something, she had to be reaching towards something fun and exciting. I was finally able to sit down and play with the image! A giant goldfish has come up to say hello.
