We had such a great Whimsical baby/Family portrait session with the Heffingtons! This family of three were the winners of our Annual Creative Session contest. We found ourselves exploring the beautiful bike trails up in Folsom to really set the scene of this Whimsical Woodland Theme at the beginning of the month. His parents came with great props to add to the atmospheric draw of their shoot. Hand knitted hats, boots, a beautiful stained glass, red colored lantern, assorted mushrooms, a hand crafted nest along with our contribution of bubbles, flutters, a water can, turtle, pinwheel, the best lady bug in town and other little touches as well as a fantastic crew really brought this session alive. More so than the enchantment the props brought was the magical beauty of this little boy’s inquisitive draw on his surroundings as well as his evident bond with his two wonderful parents. The simple touches, gestures and interaction were, by far, the strengths behind this day’s images.
This adorable ten month old full of great expression, awe and wonderful patience really stole the show. We started out in the bright morning hours to beat the sun that finally decided to make an appearance. The bike trails were overflowing with wildflowers and everything was lush on this new favorite outdoor session location that has been the backdrop of multiple sessions this last month.
Take a second out to visit the Heffington’s gallery which has over sixty eight images from their session. As winners of our contest, the Heffingtons received a 2 hour outdoor session in a beautiful outdoor location in the Sacramento or nearby area, a personalized gallery with 40-60 images, 5-10 images from the shoot posted on Facebook with our watermark, a unique slideshow posted to Facebook created from the shoot set to music to view, and a complimentary artistic print of the photographer’s choice from the session (entire session giveaway valued at $250).
Don’t miss out on the personalized slide show created for them of their session filled with Dexter’s wonderful personality.
A special thanks goes out to my crew, Merenda, Nina and Morgan with their great artistic finesse, assistance and creative eyes. These sessions couldn’t happen without you!! We’re already looking forward to next year’s creative contest!!
