My kids mean the world to me. One of my favorite things about being a mom is getting to know each of my beautiful children and their individual personalities. I feel like I have been the same mom to all four of them, and they all came from the same gene pool, and yet they are each so unique and amazing. As a photographer I love to have a little photo shoot with each of my kids around their birthdays. I really want this shoot to capture their personalities at this time in their lives and so they get to choose the location, the outfits, the hair style, etc. Here are two of their recent birthday shoots:
Tianna is 17, a senior at Mountain View, and she chose the mountains of Utah for her shoot. This is Bella, she just turned 7 and is the baby in our family by ten years. So, needless-to-say, she is a little spoiled. She wanted to do her shoot in-studio with a white backdrop and props of her choosing. Bella recently lost her two front teeth and I LOVE the look of her huge permanent teeth coming in. This smile is priceless!As anyone who knows her can attest, Tianna has an incredibly contagious laugh. You just can’t be in a bad mood around her.
Did I mention that Bella thinks she is an animal sometimes. Here she is acting out some of her favorite animals. Can you guess which is which? I can’t even begin to describe how much I love these girls and their crazy personalities. They make life worth living!
