{Sparkling Brown Eyes…and ‘the Reflection’}

Little Cosette…..what a cutie-patootie.  She just turned two and showed me with her two little fingers just after arriving at our location.  And what a little trooper Cosi was, we went on a bit of a hike during this session and Cosi hung in there.    I should always mention that there’s a possibility of a good work-out during my shoots since we either walk a distance or carry heavy props from venue to venue {it’s really not that bad ;-) I promise.} Anyway, it was a gorgeous day and we stopped to listen to the birds along the way.   Here’s a quick peek at our session.  Note: I’m editing these quickly on my laptop so bare with me till I get back to SC where I do my real editing. 

I was reminded again after opening my images to edit, that I should never wear red, orange or any other bright colors {look at the close-up of Cosi’s eye}.  Isn’t that crazy?!  I had to edit my shirt color out of every image so it wasn’t distracting (or look like ‘red-eye’).  I know better since this isn’t a first – thankfully it’s an easy edit. ;-)

Ooh, but I like the reflection of you in her eyes! Maybe I am just thinking from a scrapbook perspective. I can see the title of the page now “In her eyes” or something like that!!

Thanks ladies! I’m having a blast photographing in Seattle again!!! Ang, I don’t know if I’m photographing anyone you know – I was all booked up before I could even let the SCL crew that I was coming :( Maybe my next visit. I’m seeing the girls tonight so I’ll tell them you said hello. ;)

Kara, this little girl is such a doll. YOu captured the most darling expressions! That’ too funny about the red shirt- I would never have thought it would cause a red eye effect! I learned something new today!

I agree, stunning. She is a beautiful little girl! I love the vintage one.
