The Little Librarian – Charlotte’s Childhood Session – Sippo Lake Library- Massillon, OH

One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood.

-Agatha Christie

This sweet little three and a half year old is my daughter Charlotte. Every half year between my children’s birthdays I try and have a styled session with them. I have had this “Little Librarian” session planned for weeks. But due to sickness we had to wait a couple of months. But the perk to waiting is that when we shot this session last Tuesday it was 71 degrees! So we even got a few of Charlotte running and playing outside, which I love. Because basically that is what childhood is all about, being carefree and playful.

Styled Childhood Sessions are one of my favorite things to shoot. It is fun to add the element of creativity to a basic Childhood Session. This also provides a fun activity for the child and holds their attention longer. If you think you might be interested in a session feel free to contact me. I would love to match your session to fit the special personality of your child.

The Connon Family

This sweet little family are the Connons.  They took advantage of my mini session weekend this past October. This is the first time I got to meet little Valentina. She was a little unsure about the crazy lady with stuffed animals on her head taking her pictures! Her older brother Bear and sister Isa were so sweet to their little sister. They remind me so much of my three being so close to the same ages. And Jon and Erin are always so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. Such a beautiful family.

Charlotte’s Eighteen Month Session – Louisville OH, Family Photographer

This little lady is eighteen months old! This time of year it’s hard to find a good location to take pictures outdoors. But the dead brush, combined with the setting golden sunlight makes a perfect backdrop. Poor Charlotte is currently teething and wasn’t really in to her little session. She only game me about five good minutes before we had to leave.

A funny thing happened right before we left. This session took place at an abandoned airport strip just down the hill from my home. I’ve photographed my family there several times. But for some odd reason someone was driving by and saw me with Charlotte near the woods. They wrote down our license plate and called the police to report possible abandonment. But they never stuck around to see me put my daughter back into our van and drive home?!? So exactly one hour later a police officer showed up at our house shines his flashlight in our windows looking for Charlotte. It startled my husband and he asked the police officer if he could help him. He asked to see the kids and then wanted to talk to me. He said that they had been looking for a small child in the woods for 45 minutes! I felt so bad that I caused them all that hassle. But he didn’t seem too concerned. And I verified that I had permission to shoot at the airport and he said, “I have no problem with it. I bet it makes for great pictures doesn’t it?” It was a very exciting night for us.
