The idea for this session was to shoot indoors for most of Lyla's pictures then out to some grass for a few family photos.
I've had some smiley babies, but nothing like Lyla. My very first frame was the cheesiest smile I've ever gotten from a baby under a year. I knew from that point on that we were going to have a fun time. It was actually hard to get her to look away from the camera.
The orange grove by my house was a perfect place to let this family play! There were even tiny spots of tall grass. Tall grass excites me (probably a little too much!) since it's an anomaly here in the desert. Lyla had so much fun getting thrown up in the air, planking, playing with the grass, playing with her mommy's necklace and hanging out with her parents.
What an amazingly beautiful and sweet family. I just love what I do. I feel so blessed that God decided to give me this talent that I get to share with people like Lyla's family.
