Little Bohemian Girl – Fine Art Child Photography

Blogging, I suck at it. I have great intentions but lack the follow through. I am bad. That being said, I am making myself do it. How could I not with gorgeous images like these?

I really haven’t been shooting to much over the last year. I shoot what I need for composites and have just put my light painting on the back burner. I found myself really missing it and picked up my camera to shoot for the sake of shooting and playing in the light again. How in the world did I let myself go so long without doing this I just will not understand. I must have needed the break to bring me back to the love and appreciation I used to have.

I’ve shot a few mini sessions with my daughter and loved them all, each one I loved even more. Then came this one and I made myself swoon with how beautiful they turned out. I knew I wanted a dreamy, yet editorial feel to the images, I knew I wanted gorgeous golden hour backlighting. All of this came together better than what I had hoped for.

I am in love. I love my daughter for always putting up with me wanting to shoot her, whether it be for composite art or for the love of photography. Her and I have this down. We’ve done this so many years now that we can pump out a full session in 10-15 minutes. She rocks as my model, she rocks as my daughter, she rocks at being who is she is.

I hope you enjoy these images.

Family Time – A personal post

“I sustain myself with the love of family.”
― Maya Angelou

It was a beautiful day. The temps were mild, not quite warm enough to use our pool, but not so cool we needed sweatshirts. My husband and I decided we would take our youngest to the school playground so she could get some exercise, work on those large motor skills and just have some fun. As we were getting ready to leave I went into my 15 year old’s room to tell him we were leaving, he gave me a look that only a mother would recognize. See I didn’t think he would want to go, being he’s 15 and if you’ve got teens, you know that they just normally wouldn’t want to hang out at the playground with their parents and little sister. Back to that look, I could tell he wanted to go, never even had to say it. I told him to get ready and we would wait for him. Lesson learned for this mom, ask the teenager if he wants to go and never assume he won’t want too. I am so glad he wanted to come, it really never feels complete when he’s not with us and I truly enjoy this young mans company.

It was a nice time. My daughter had fun running around, climbing and hanging upside down. My husband even got in on the play time action and was climbing and went and sat on the tire swing. My son, of course, had to do some insane crazy things that could really hurt him….he’s an adrenaline junky and for him the more risky, the more fun.

We don’t get the chance to get out much together and just relax and have fun. When we do, I cherish them. Family time is so vital. It is the life blood that shapes our lives, it is what fills our memory banks that can be shared in future generations, it is the very foundation on which we build. Our Children, once they are adults, don’t look back and remember the things we bought for them, the cool toys, the fabulous designer clothes. No, they remember the moments, the times spent together, the time given, the way you listened, the way you loved, the laughs, the hugs, that is what sticks with them through their life. The memories are their home and they will take home with them wherever they go.

Blessings,
Kristen Marie
