Little miss Ava McKenzie is one lucky girl. She has two amazing parents that love her more than words can describe and grandparents that flew all the way from Oklahoma just to see her. Normally if a child is under six months I like to take the pictures in the clients home. That is where young babies are most comfortable and aware of their surroundings, which most of the time makes the session go much easier. It was a gorgeous day out. You could tell it was going to be a hot day but at 10am the weather was perfect. When I walked into the house I was in awe of how nice everything was. They have a beautiful courtyard right outside their living room, with the doors open it felt as if the house was completely open. It was refreshing to occasionally feel a slight breeze of fresh air brush up against your body. The décor in the house looked like it came straight out of a Pottery Barn magazine, it was beautiful, it was perfect. The room was filled with some of the closest people to Ava. Grandparents, great Aunt and even her mom’s best friend. It was hard not to smile when I looked around the room and saw everyone talking, laughing, and cooing over any little move Ava made. I had only been there about 20 minutes when Ava started to get tired. This threw any kind of game plan I had out the door, but it left me with an opportunity I have been wanting to do. When I knew Ava was tired and was probably going to be fussy most of the time I told her mom just to do what she would normally do. Let others hold her, feed her, love her, and I will capture it all. And, that is exactly what I did.
Can’t wait to see you again in a couple months Miss. Ava.
Ava loves the dog. It was the only thing to make her stop crying at one point.
