Fall photoshoot with my niece

I spent the afternoon with my niece, taking pictures of her frolicking in the garden. I love taking pictures, a ton of pictures. It’s even better when the subject is so much fun to play with.


My sister dressed her up really cute.  I wish I had outfits like my niece when I was little. Instead I sported a bowl cut and wore tomboyish clothes.

We are using these set of pictures for Christmas cards and so we tried to make it look like Fall, even though it was about 80 degrees in SoCal when we took these pictures in November. We even went out for frozen yogurt afterwards.

I have a feeling that when our little one arrives in March, I’ll be the type of mom that will take thousands of pictures of my baby 🙂

One thing I learned from taking portraits of kids….it’s very fun but also challenging. They have short attention span with instructions and after a few minutes of posing, they would run away and play. The best photos were the ones I capture while she was playing and just being a kid.

I just wanted to share these pictures. I’m proud that I took them and I am even more proud to be an aunt to this beautiful little girl, so full of joy and it just makes me happy.


How cute are these little calves wearing small Uggs? So adorable.
