sweet lilly

It's been way too long since I'd taken any photos of little people. It's rather hard to take pictures of a person if they're totally opposed to it. My other siblings refused, but Lilly finally agreed to let me get some shots of her in exchange for some Sour Patch Kids. 

Yes, it's true. I resort to bribing frequently occasionally. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, right? Right. (Please don't tell me I'm the only one who does this...)

But in the end, Lilly was pleased with her candy, I was pleased with the resulting images from our little photoshoot, and my craving for photography was quenched.



One thing I really love to do when photographing children is to engage them somehow. In this case, I asked Lilly to tell me a story, which gave me the next three images. I wasn't really paying attention, but it was something about a boy named "Fat White Tshirt". Okay then.


It was rather chilly outside, so I let Lilly wear my Uggs. They were enormously huge on her. They were so big, in fact, that I had to carry her to the different places we were shooting at. But while they might have been enormously huge, they were enormously cute.


(apparently she was impersonating a dog here...)


I'm so in love with these last two photos...I'm not a huge fan of backlight, but sometimes it works out perfectly. Swoon.

What are some of your favorite things to photograph?


PS Thank y'all so much for your super sweet, uplifting comments on my last post. You really don't know how much it means to me.
