One of my resolutions this year was to take more photographs of my daughter. This past year has been a bit of a rollercoaster for my family and I, and as I have been so busy photographing everyone else's family memories, I have been failing to capture my own. My daughter is truly a muse for me. She inspired me to start this business, but she also inspires me every day to do better and be more. There is something so magical about childhood and I want to preserve that forever with my photographs. Of course one of the problems with taking more photographs of my daughter is that she is 18 months old. 1 1/2- 2 1/2 years old can be the most difficult age to photograph. They just don't sit still! This morning I woke up with a vision in my head for this shoot, and I was actually insane enough to carry it out (with lots of help from my mom, who gladly indulges my creative whims). G has been loving tea parties and dress up lately so I thought "what better way than a tea party to keep her in front of the camera?!" It worked for a few minutes anyway. At least enough time to capture a shot. A single moment of childhood that I can forever look back upon with a smile.
The tea cup photo is a freebee for you :0) Feel free to download it!
