Veronica’s aunt is a really cool and funny person. I’ve known her for her a very long time and she gifted a photo shoot to her sister for her niece, Veronica. She was a such a cute girl and once again, so easy! She never cried or whined and even better, she wasn’t walking yet and didn’t try to crawl away when we put her down. I love kids like that! She also gave us some really great emotions and expressions, which I love! We used my carved rocking horse with her and she loved it.
We did this session last August on a day that wasn’t super humid. If I remember correctly, it was super buggy though! One of the downfalls of living on Long Island: mosquitoes. We have SO many of them and they all seem to be at my favorite shooting locations. Naturally they get worse at sunset, which is when I always shoot (the best light!) Poor Veronica got a few bites, but she didn’t seem to mind at all. I think all the adults minded a lot more! Bug spray, and lots of it, are always in my camera bag in the summer months for photo shoots!
A fun fact: all of the dresses and accessories Veronica is wearing in this session are from my private collection. If you have been a fan of mine for a long time, you’ll notice the first green polka dot dress Veronica is wearing! I used in one of my very favorite pictures I took of Zoe at 7 months. The second dress she is wearing was Piper’s! And the third dress both of my girls have worn (and I used it with other clients because it is one of my very favorite dresses ever.) My girls have had (and continue to have) a very extensive wardrobe. Many of the things I buy for them I buy with photo shoots in mind. I don’t always get to use them but I keep them because I hope to be able to use them with clients. I love being able to style my clients and I am always happy to provide wardrobe and accessories whenever I can. In fact, if I have a piece you love, we can always plan a styled session around it!
Veronica is going to be a big sister soon, so I thought I’d finally share her session with you!
