Keeping it Real

I have been a lucky duck to photograph this family so many times over the years (even before their rad girl was born). It is something special to watch people enter parenthood. It’s also pretty sweet to watch how this cool as a cucumber gal is loved so much.

She came to the photo session with Lamby in one hand, her beats (blue tooth speaker) in the other. She picked out her rain boots to wear and her shades were a must. I’m gonna be real honest…I was nervous that maybe her parents would be bummed she had her shades on in every photo. We chatted a bit about it and they were all about her shades…..which I LOVED!!

I know the phrases “Keep it real” and “stay golden” are common, popular and maybe even cliche phrases (however I will never admit cliche because I like them too much). But those phrases are what I want my photos to scream! and I want to live by.

This little gal defines…keeping it real. Everyone in the neighborhood was charmed by her and she was only looking that cute for herself. There was even a woman that said to her mom as we walked by… “I want to be her when I grow up” or something like that (I can’t remember because this session was a while ago).
