At some point in my liberal arts college career, I fell in love with Frida Kahlo. Her story is so fascinating, her self portraits are intriguing and beautiful. A couple years ago, we went to a Frida/Diego art exhibit in Atlanta – where I bought myself a silly t shirt and a poster which will one day hang in my office – that is, when I have an actual office and not the corner of the girl’s playroom. 😉  I just HAD to buy this little shirt for Callie and have been holding on to it for at least 6 months for the perfect outfit to photograph it with. It’s been worn probably 20 times, and now, even has little food stains at the neck of the shirt. So I just got these Freshly Picked moccasins in the mail today, and knew they’d work perfectly with this little outfit – and because I’m a lover/supporter of all small business mamas like myself – Her denim pants are Ella B Denim, headband is ThanBirds and her little toddler purse is iBetterAccessorize. Callie isn’t quite 2 yet, but she’s super active (as most almost two year olds are!) and what better way to capture this time than a little lifestyle session with her.

I never want to lose sight of the fact that it’s a new life, a God-given gift, a baby that God chose for his/her parents. I love designing cake smash sets, watching babies pass their 1 year milestone, dig into their first bite of cake, and watch their parents gush over how absolutely adorable they are (which is so true! I crack up almost every cake smash session I do!) And don’t even get me start on birth sessions or Fresh 48’s – ahhh! I literally get an adrenaline rush on my way home, rush home and run to the computer to upload my pictures so I can re-live every little detail! But I have this desire to shoot for ME. To get creative, to 100% make every decision of a shoot, to style it completely, to pick the backdrop, the way I edit, to do something different than I normally would.
