she's happy!

I've had this post lingering around in my draft folder for quite some time now, so I figured it was now or never.

I love Livia's cute little faces, but I can't believe I placed her in a patch of yucky old grass. Grrr!

These shots were all one big happy accident anyway. I wanted to experiment again with backlighting, but the minute I placed Livia in her restraining device bucket, the sun disappeared behind a house and was gone for the evening.

I figured since we were out and about anyway, I might as well face her toward the light and capture those sparkling eyes.

I guess it was good we whirled her around, because when we got home and looked at the pictures on the computer, I noticed something I had not seen while shooting into the sun. In the background was a gigantic yellow banner that read "Lease Luxury Villas Now!" Totally didn't see that.

I love this one.

She was so happy that evening!

I think I finally noticed the spotty grass, and we moved to a patch of clover.

Patchy grass or not, I love these captures of Livia!

We have a busy weekend ahead, so I'll see you again on Monday!
Happy (early) weekend! :-)

Back to the bucket eh? Hahah! She is such a dolly, Karli and she is getting TALL. (sniff, sniff) These are amazing shots!

I'm almost speechless about your shots but honestly - that's pretty much impossible with me. Beautiful sweet girl - grass or no grass. But the clover is something to aim for next time. Restraining device smack dab in the clover patch - priceless!!! My fave is the black and white portrait! Just lovely! Enjoy your weekend!!!

I love a good impromptu portrait session! And thank you for your kind words. I've happened upon your site a few times and I'm a fan. I added Touch Up Tuesday to my photo challenge page...and ya know, I would host a challenge myself, but my current job keeps me on the road every so often and I always worry about consistency. One of these days, I hope to be hosting my own challenges and what not. Anyways, glad we could share with one another. :)

Yay for photo shoots! :)

I love the one of her squatting in the bucket! Even with the patchy grass. ;) Her adorable face draws all the attention.

The B&W one is gorgeous, too.

I really have to get myself a bucket... :D

You could stick her in a mound of dirt and she would still look adorable!! She is so cute. ;)
