While I was photographing Baby E, this little one was eager to be a part of things. (As showcased in Baby E’s post.) So I sent her into her room to figure out what was special to her that she wanted to be photographed with when it was her turn.
I expected a doll and maybe a stuffed animal… I was not expecting this line up!
But in all actuality, it was so neat that she gathered all of her favorite things (and put them in a store display)! What a treasure this image will be years down the road.
I also love these types of images (below). These documentary images are my favorite because they not only show what the girls played with, but the room itself becomes part of the story.
Oh, how lovely to have a sister to play with!
Big sister had the sparkliest eyes.
She loves to write stories – so that’s what we captured. It was so neat to see how quickly she was able to focus once that notebook came out.
In a room full of cheerful color and toys, she created her own little oasis.
Afterward, the rest of the family joined us for some portraits outside, and Mom and Dad got a chance for their own updated portrait.
