It is such a compliment when clients are referred to me by other clients or even someone who has not been a client. Galilea's mom contacted me after she was referred by a wonderful make up artist I use for momma's for sessions, Karen. We scheduled the session and I was so excited to start getting everything planned and prepared. Galilea's cake smash set up started my obsession with balloon garlands after finding a super easy way to string them together.
When session day came, I was so excited to meet this little lady and the rest of the family. You guys, when I saw her and her siblings, I was even more excited. How adorable are these kiddos? Ms. Galilea was a typical 1 year old that was interested in everything but the set up we had for her. she wanted to explore the studio and play and run. She didn't really have a photo session in her plans. We used bribery and got some sweet, sweet pictures of family and her by herself but since mom wanted some outdoor photos as well we decided to finish the session up another day with some more sibling photos.
I had such a hard time narrowing this session down as far as what to present to mom to choose her favorites. Even though Ms. Galilea made us work for every photo and mosquitoes were beyond horrible outdoors (even with a can of fogger), we managed to get such a full gallery of wonderful photos. My and mom's favorite was at the little surprised face she made throughout the session. It was so cute. Here are some of my favorites.
