A little princess, a tea party, and an orchard...what could be cuter?
My thoughts exactly!
Here are some of my favorites from the Peach Blossoms & Princesses styled mini sessions from earlier this month at Tracey's Orchard.
Miss Maya was so sweet! She used the hat box like a little table for her tea party.
I had so much fun styling this shoot (one word...Pinterest. Enough said.)
The hat box was 'borrowed' from my daughter's bedroom, and I found the teapot at a local antique shop.
Of course I had to include my two princesses in this shoot!
This is Elliana, my almost 4-year-old.
And here is Eliza, my baby girl who just turned 1!
Isn't little Miss Aubrey so precious, sharing tea with Elmo?
I absolutely love 'everyday' images of my girls, but I also loved doing this intentional portrait session with them. Elliana is at an age where she loves to feel like a princess, so she was more than happy to wear the 'crown' and her ruffle dress. There is something about this image though that makes it imperfectly perfect. If you look closely, you can see her Dora bandaids. I didn't notice them until after we finished. As a photographer mom, I was so upset that I missed that detail and didn't have her take them off. Then I realized that those bandaids help tell the story of who she is right now. She's an adventurer, an explorer, a risk taker. She has more scraps and bruises than any other little girl I know. She loves to catch bugs and dig in the dirt, and then comes inside, washes up, and puts on her dress, lip gloss and sparkly shoes.
