children photography | Starr
This past Summer I took my beautiful little neighbor, Starr up to my favorite field in the world and played around, I had to snap some photos for Royal Sisters Boutique, who do these amazing head bands/ bows, etc. So that was the purpose – but how could I not just take some fun candid stuff too? Although I do so much photography, I can never get enough of it, give me a sweet, innocent child and a beautiful field with white flowers and you will literally have to drag me away until I can’t go any higher on my ISO settings… I am SO, so, passionate about what I do and every day feel so lucky to actually be making money at doing something that is so much fun. When I am at photo shoots, I go into a world where I don’t think about anything else except the shoot at this moment, there is really nothing else that allows me to do that…
I had my little Belle up there with me and was able to get a couple cute ones of her too, so I included those. I LOVED the cute dress that Starr was wearing when I saw her that afternoon, I need to ask her what brand it was, if I forget to comment and somebody wants to know, remind me. But I wasn’t planning on taking photos of her, I just knew I had to get these headbands shot and when I saw her it inspired me to take her to this lovely place and take some photos. I love that her hair was so natural and not perfectly curled, etc. That is my favorite look on a child.
There are wild apple trees at this place (not in these pics), and it is the ONLY location I really keep to myself, I have never seen another photographer there and if the word got out I feel like there would be a million photographers there 24/7 because of it’s beauty and variety. I like to go there with my kids in the summer, sometimes in the late afternoon or sometimes in the middle of the day, just to run around, throw rocks, etc. They named it officially, “Apple Crisp” park. It is where I have taken some amazing fall color pictures I get asked about a lot… I think I get asked hundreds of times a year where this place is… I can’t wait to go there this Spring… hmmmm, just thinking about it sort of put me in a trance of “wanting summer and no more winter”… it gets hard every year in Utah for me around March, when you are craving Spring and Summer and sort of done with the snow. Although, I’m not a “winter hater” like some around here, I actually love the whimsical white beauty of snow and the cold doesn’t bother me.
Okay, so back to the photos… so we really only spent about 15 minutes taking these and it was later than “golden hour”, so normally would have shot them earlier, but I still think they are pretty.
