Eila's Camping Trip!

July 15, 2013  •  1 Comment

I personally love shooting children's portraits because you never know how they are going to turn out til you are done!  These images are a testament to that!  We took these portraits at my favorite spot at White Rock Lake in Dallas, TX.  This was the first set of professional portraits that Melisa has done of sweet Eila and I wanted to make them super special!  We talked about doing some with Eila holding my antique camera and then I decided to take it up a notch and design a whole set for this little cutie pie!  Brad (my boyfriend) and I were able to built the tent out of $5 sheet from Walmart,  some 1"x2" wood strips, and pvc pipe from Home Depot.  (Tip: when building props for a photo shoot, measure it to be sure it will fit in your car!  I learned that the hard way on this session!) I bought the flowers at Michael's and the rest of the set is props and such from my house.  It was very cold that morning and we had anticipated warmer weather so Eila was dressed for spring.  Lucky for me I brought a cute blanket and Eila was very happy to wrap herself in it to keep warm!  But we still wanted to get some shots of her cute outfit so we moved the set into the sun to keep her warm while we played a game of "run through the tent". We needed her to be in front of the tent and this seemed like the best way to do so, since she has so much energy! (as many 2 year olds do)  It worked perfectly and we were able to capture some of my favorite children's portraits to date.  The results were amazing and I could't be happier with the way these portraits turned out!   Enjoy!


Great first blog!
