Mikaila | Personal Project

Mikaila is one of our neighbors, and even more importantly, one of the babysitters our girls love!  She's completely sweet, awesome, and an overall just great girl (good job, Mom & Dad).  We really appreciate all that she does for us & our girls, so when her mom told me about their plans to surprise her with an early graduation present, I HAD to be there to witness it.

Mikaila's parents got her a new {to her} car as an early graduation present.  They told us they planned on taking her out to a family dinner, and then have another neighbor move her car in to their numbered space.  So when they arrived back home, they would think some stranger parked in their spot.  

They arrived home & all of this happened perfectly.  They had Mikaila get out of the car to see if she could see any signs of who it belonged to so they could ask the person to move it.  When she got out & looked in the window, the following is what happened...

Bryce - Six Months | Arnold, MD Child Photographer

Gah!   This little man is so squishable I could just eat him up!  (If you don't have kids, that might sound creepy to you.)  Bryce is my neighbor in our little community in Arnold and I asked his mom if I could borrow him once he started sitting up to try out a vision I had with balloons.  He wasn't sitting up when I asked, but as you can see below, he's doing great now!  So, about 4 dozen balloons later, testing out various set ups on my (unwilling) daughters & their baby dolls, I think I got what I was looking for.  And you know what?  The great thing is that with each new child, every sessions looks different - and I LOVE that!  I am always happy to practice my in-home studio lighting setup & am so thankful to Bryce's parents for letting me borrow him.  He was great!  Enjoy his cuteness....
