Zenna in the Leaves

There’s this tree, actually I think it’s two trees, that I drive by every morning on my way to take Zenna to school. I drove by it everyday last year to pick up my nephew from school. It stands alone in a big field on the side of a playground for a preschool. It drops the biggest piles of leaves in a perfect circle all around it. This year I’ve been watching it. Just waiting for the perfect time to get some pictures of somebody playing in those leaves. That day was last Tuesday…We decided to do a spur of the moment shoot of Zenna in these leaves at golden hour.

Zenna sure had fun running, jumping and playing in the leaves! Just look at the smile plastered on her face as she’s about to dive into this pile of leaves at almost warp speed!

We just love Autumn leaves! Move over Christmas, because if you ask us, THIS is the most wonderful time of the year!

Zenavieve's 6th Birthday Session

Our favorite little princess is about to turn 6 in just a few short days.

We can’t believe it either!

Zenavieve decided she wanted to have a Shimmer & Shine themed birthday party this year. So we decided it would be fun to do something a little different and send out video invitations this year instead of paper invitations.

We wrote and practiced some lines, set up the green screen in our living room, got Zenna all genie-fied, and started shooting. Here are some behind the scenes shots of our video shoot.

As for her birthday photo shoot, we have always wanted to do a shoot with those giant balloons we’ve seen before, so we decided to get some this year. They are a lot bigger than we realized however, and three of them almost didn’t even fit in our SUV. Thank goodness we didn’t get more. :)

Here are some of our favorite shots from Zenna’s birthday shoot this year.


We sure love this little nugget and can’t believe how fast she is growing! We hope you enjoy the video and pictures almost as much as we do!

Happy Birthday Zenavieve!!

Cute Lil' Bad Ass

Sometimes we just want to shoot. Sometimes it's your weekend and you get a wild hair and decide to have a little fun. That's how sessions like these happen.

We've tossed some ideas around for a while of doing some kind of tattooed kid shoot with Zenna just for fun. We had a stock pile of temporary tattoos from the dollar store, her birthday, Easter, etc. so we just decided to go for it. Once we got her all tatted up we decided she looked like a cute little bad ass so that's what we decided to call the session.

And of course she wouldn't be a bad ass without a bad ass bike to ride...

But even bad ass bikes sometimes need repair...

We had a ton of fun doing this session and Zenavieve loved being covered in tattoos. These are just fun memories that we will always cherish and we hope you love them too!
