This shoot almost didn’t happen this morning, and I cannot even begin to tell you how glad I am that the rain, wind, and cold temperatures cooperated for us! After the most beautiful week here in Houston, wouldn’t you know that suddenly there was a rain storm and cold front in the forecast for today. Such a bummer! At 7:30 this morning, I was sure we were going to have to reschedule because it was raining. But by 8:15, the rain had stopped and only clouds remained. It was still a warm 65 degrees outside with no sign of the 20 mph winds that were in the forecast. So we decided to go ahead and go for it, knowing that we might have to work fast and rescheduling was still a possibility.
However, I could tell as soon as we started shooting that we were going to be just fine. L was such a spunky little cutie! Her mom had warned me that she was a busy one, which is always fun for me. She talked and smiled and laughed and danced. Oh my, could she dance! Sometimes when I tell a toddler to dance, I might get a blank stare or a little knee bend. But not her! She totally got down. It was one of the funniest and cutest things I’ve ever seen. I could barely keep taking pictures because I was laughing so hard. After her little shindig, she looked right at me and we got this picture.
And shortly after, we got this one, which I just love as a black and white.
After a quick wardrobe change, it was back to L being a precious little model. She loved sitting on my little blue stool and was all smiles.
At this point, the temperature started to drop and the wind started to pick up. But we pressed on because L was still just so happy and there were more outfits to change into! I’m glad we kept going because we got some great shots of her in this super cute outfit that her mom made for her 2nd birthday.
Isn’t that outfit adorable?! Just wait until you see the hat that goes with it! Although I don’t think the cuteness of the hat holds a candle to the girl wearing it. I just love the personality that shows in this picture!
Do you see the little ladybug details on the shirt? So cute. Her mom actually has an online store and sells handmade clothes, bows, and accessories. You should totally check out her store, The Plaid Zebra, if you get a chance!
After this picture, we called it a day. By this point, the temperature had dropped into the low 50s and the crazy winds had arrived. L’s lips were turning purple by the time we got back to our cars. But she was such a champ and never stopped being her smiley, spunky self.
I can’t wrap up this sneak peek until I share at least one of this whole sweet family. I love how L is giving her mom a little cuddle. She is one adored little girl, just as she should be.
I am so glad we were able to meet this morning, and I cannot wait to show you the rest of your gallery!
