Who says you have to wait until you're a senior in high school or getting engaged to get awesome photos made?!? For Lily's tenth birthday, mama Michelle had a brilliant idea: snap some beautiful portraits of this incredible stage in Lily's life. I love the way these photos capture the half-girl-half-woman stage, where she's playful and beautiful, sporty and sweet, silly and captivating, uncertain and unhindered.
And at the end of the session, after the sunset, she INSISTED that we snap some photos of her getting soaked up to her belly button in the waves of the Pacific Ocean—jeans and all. Every photo in this set seems to capture a different side of Lily, a different emotion, and different thought, and I had the best time snapping and editing these special memories!
Love this idea? Got a ten-year-old in your life that would love a portrait session? Check out my rates page or shoot me an email to talk dates! >> email@example.com
