snapshots from today

1. a gorgeous flower (I am so flower challenged...I have no idea what kind it i)
2. a giant lollipop, which will be used in the photo shoot later (read below to find out more)
3. crape myrtle - surprise, surprise! 
4. an overexposed photo of Lilly...but I love it anyway

Following lunch today, I tried to have a photo shoot in the backyard with my siblings. Because it was around one, the sun was high overhead - making the light extremely difficult to work with.
I called it off and we've decided to go to a park later and have the shoot there. It'll be my first time having a planned session, complete with props - hopefully it goes well. I know exactly what I'm looking for in the photos. With a bit of luck, I'll be able to capture the feel I was looking for. I'm so excited!

Assuming everything works out, stay tuned for photos from the shoot later this week :)
