All these amazing families I get to meet, how could I not love being a family photographer?! A little girl is a giggle wrapped in sunlight. I met such a little girl, named Kayalena, while doing an outdoor photoshoot for her second birthday! Kayalena has a beautiful life and is surrounded by beautiful parents. They like to spend time going for walks, planting flowers and going by rivers. They are all happy and easygoing, but Kayalena can be a bit shy at times; but as her photographer, I saw nothing short of a happy, fun-loving little girl! I just love how much she loved her purse and doll, so grown up already!!
Kayalena had her second birthday on August 22nd, and her family had this outdoor photo shoot in celebration! Since they love to be outdoors, this forest preserve was the perfect setting. One of the most special parts about being a family photographer is being able to capture the special moments that happen between both mother and daughter and father and daughter. I have many favorite pictures from this session. The first is the picture of Kayalena in heels that match her mom’s! A little girl will always look up to her mom throughout her entire life, it was so precious to capture this moment. The second picture is of mom and dad laying on the quilt with Kayalena in the middle; they all look so happy and the beauty of their love translates even more in photographs than it does in real life.
Kayalena is such a sweet little girl, and is going to be a big sister soon! Mom and Dad are expecting another baby girl, and the entire family is excited, from both grandparents all the way down to Kayalena. She is going to make a beautiful sister, and will have a new best friend to go on all of her adventures with! This new baby is super special too, she will be a rainbow baby. Kayalena’s family is blessed to have a miracle like Kayalena in their life and even more blessed to have a second! I am so glad I was able to capture this little princess’s birthday!
