Persnickety Month #1

Persnickety Clothing Company. Cutest kids clothes around.  Persnickety Clothing Company is having a contest.  Each month there will be a theme to do the photoshoot around. Cute girls, a fun theme, and adorable clothes. What could be better?! Follow along with us through June! The photos from each shoot that I think are the best and represent the theme well, will be submitted to Persnickety. Many photographers will be submitting photos so it will be fun to see the collection. A panel of judges will vote for their favorite.
Today I had two shoots of three adorable girls.  This months theme was Comfortable Being Me. 
 Meet Danyka. 

Meet Whitney.

Danyka and Whitney's dress comes from the Spring/Summer Collection.  All the Spring/Summer clothing is on sale so snag it while you can!  Their mom made their adorable bows!  (this is the only photoshoot where Persnickety will allow the hair accessory to not be theirs)

We had the best time early this morning walking the trail.  Photoshoots like this one make me so thankful that I am a photographer. 


Later on this evening a half hour before the sun set, my sweet Makenna and I headed out to capture her in front of the camera. 

I had big plans of her wearing her boots and cowboy hat.  She refused the boots because she had a blister and her cowboy hat was left at home.  Plan B!  Makenna did her own thing this whole shoot representing the theme well.  Her dress and headband are from the Spring/Summer line too.  Love.

I just love her big toothless grin. She seems so much bigger now. 

We had to get one shot of the cowboy hat when we got home. 
 Today was so fun and I can't wait for next month's shoot!!

Carlson Shoot

Since I started my photography business I am always on the look out for neat spots to take pictures.  I love Old Elk Grove for its nooks and crannies and being right by the train tracks.  My girlfriend gave her cousin a photography gift card at Christmas and she redeemed it today. It was nice to meet her and her two sweet children, James and Kimber. 

 Even though it was quite warm during this shoot we found leaves and played.  It is fall ya know!
Great morning!

Be Rad.

This photoshoot rocked.  My girlfriend and I saw these shirts here and knew we had to create our own photoshoot with our boys.  "Be eccentric if you are. Be brilliant if you are. Be loud, if you are.  Do not inhibit yourself from being who you are supposed to be."  We loved the idea behind these shirts especially now that all these boys are in school.  Preschool - 1st grade.  These handsome boys had the best time out at Keema Pumpkin Farm. Between the tree fort, corn maze, stacked bales of hay, pumpkins, cows, and old truck there was plenty to smile about.

Corn maze was awesome.  

Tree fort that the boys took a liking to.

Lemonade and gummy worms!  What could be better!?

This corn maze was the best.

See the girls back there catching up on life?  Love it. 

So full of energy and smiles.

I had a great time this evening.  I know the boys did too.
