Usually the saying goes “third time’s a charm”…but lucky for us, second time was a charm, LOL! I met up with Melanie, Juston and Julia on a beautiful Saturday morning at Misty Wood Park in Roseville, but I think Julia was distracted by the fact that it was a large open area that she could run in, there was a playground right in front of us and she couldn’t play on it while we took pictures and it was a new place to explore in general. By all of this, I’m saying she wasn’t terribly into having her picture taken, although I, being the quick and sneaky photographer that I am ;o) was able to snag a good amount of shots that were great….we still weren’t able to get a couple important shots (i.e. a family portrait & a few others). So, we decided after an hour of torturing Julia with dangling the carrot, being the park, in front of her, that we’d reschedule to finish up the session another day. It ended up working out to reshoot the following weekend, which was fabulous because this time we met at the same park, but walked back behind some homes on trail where there were big oak trees and basically, NO PARK IN SIGHT! LOL! It worked wonders! Julia did an amazing job and I was able to finally capture much more of her beautiful personality, which she is very full of! She loves to explore, wander, be sang to, mimic the itsy bitsy spider, dance, smile, make fun faces and just be a happy-go-lucky little girl! Here is a combination of my favorite shots from the first and second session!
BTW, I chose a song that you might feel is a little random and you might not even know it, but let me give you my reasoning…it’s a song from Disneyland that you might hear walking down Main Street USA (and as many of you know I’m a completely huge Disney fanatic!). When I hear music like this it makes me smile and I feel like a I’m a kid again. When I was looking back thru the Artist Favorites of Julia, with all her personality then listened to this song, I thought it was perfect! The smiles and laughter and personality she has, reminds me of being a kid again and I could just picture her taking in all the sights and sounds walking down Main Street USA! Njoy!
P.S. I hope you guys had a magical time in Disneyland Melanie, Juston & Julia!
