Favorite Photo Friday - "Silver Shoes and Tutus"

November 1, 2012

Leaning to the Side BLOG
Last weekend I had my first official "2 Hip Chics Photography" photoshoot with this little cutie!

Big Smile With Teeth on Steps Harlow BLOG
She is about to turn 1 and her Mom wanted to document the big occasion with some photos.

Cute as Can Be Harlow BLOG
It was a completely overcast day and it even drizzled a bit, but not long or hard enough to get in the way of our one hour session.

light and the leaves Harlow BLOG
We knew it was now or never because "Sandy" was going to wash away those leaves and gorgeous Fall colors in one foul swoop!

Hands and Knees Centered Harlow BLOG
It took this cutie pie a little bit to warm up to the camera...

beautiful eyes sitting on the walkway BLOG
but once she did, OH MELT MY HEART... She totally turned on the charm.

I was dying over the jeweled silver shoes and had to get a close up of those sweet feet!

Looking down on the steps Harlow BLOG
She was not a big fan of the shoes and kicked them off about halfway through:)

Looking over her shoulder Harlow 8 x 10 BLOG
Baby "H" had the kind of eyes that just drew you in....
I could not get enough of this beautiful girl and would stayed out in the park with her all day.

Tree Light Harlow BLOG
She was definitely a girl on the move and was intrigued with all that was around her.

on the ledge Harlow BLOG
She loved the leaves and lit up like a Christmas tree when someone would walk by with a Dog. Some of the best smiles we saw that day were as a result of a cute puppy passing by:) I would love to take credit for getting this girl to grin, but it was the Puppy Love that brought out the big beautiful smiles.

Hand Out to the Side On the Steps Harlow BLOG
This was one of those sessions that we went into hoping just to get a few..... well we got way more than a few and now Mom is going to have a hard time choosing which photos she would like to print. I definitely have my favorites....and since the "2 Hip Chics" website is still not completely finished, I decided to share my favs here instead.

Hope everyone had a wonderful week and has a fun weekend ahead!
With any luck I will get some photos of the girls in their Halloween costumes in the next few days and take some photos to post next week. All Halloween activities were postponed due to the storm:(

Enjoy your weekend everyone and try not to eat too much Halloween Candy!

the long road

UM.... GASP!!! These are probably my favorite shots of yours ever ever EVER!!! They are absolute perfection. The location couldn't be any more perfect (we have NOTHING like that around here - ugh!) and the baby is breathtaking. I have never captured such beautiful catchlights like that on a cloudy day. Her eyes just sparkle!! Wow is all I can say! Great job! xo
