After much delay, I was finally able to schedule a session for of one of my favorite families. We originally tried to get together to photograph Miss Ellie for her first birthday, but life was hectic and we couldn't seem to make it work. So we scheduled a time around Casey's birthday and we were rained out... twice. Fortunately for us, the third time was the charm. And it also happened to be Matt's birthday.
We met at the UC Davis Arboretum, which is just a beautiful place. Miss Ellie is walking now and she was not exactly interested in having her picture taken. In fact, I think she told me "all done" and "bye bye" more than once. I must admit, my feelings were a little hurt, but I persevered. And just when we were about to call it a night, Ellie sat down and played with the dried leaves that had fallen to the ground. I could have kept shooting for hours... Except that the sun had nearly set. And Matt and his BFF were headed to a football game. Again, feelings a little hurt. But hey, football is way cooler than having your picture taken. Especially when your BFF has flown all the way across the country to hang out with you.
Without further adieu, here is one of my favorite families. Love them!
Happy Birthday to Ellie, Casey and Matt!
