It’s not often that I write out babies names as first and middle. But, oh! her name! Odella Delphine…. it just sings old timey music while sitting in a frilly dress on a southern manor porch with a glass of lemonade… right?!? It’s a big name for such a little girl, but with Zach and Kara for parents, I know this little one is destined for greatness!
I was so happy when Kara asked me to come to their house for photos – photographing on location is my most favorite way to shoot since I’m able to capture a client in a more natural, comfortable and personal setting. Most clients have a hard time thinking their home could lend itself to amazing photos, but they’ve always been pleasantly surprised by the outcome! It’s almost always possible to find great lighting, and in Odella’s case, amazing props as well! I contributed a few blankets and my super amazing, fantastic mini top hat, but the rest was all Kara and Zach. Recognize the frame?!? Zach’s grandmother’s mirror frame has been the most requested item from my clients since K+Z’s engagement session a few years back. I tried to take it off the wall and out the door with me, but no luck, sorry friends!! It did re-inspire me to find one of my own, so keep your eyes peeled. :)
I’ve been drooling over this photo all week – isn’t Miss Odella precious?! There are so many great shots that I just had to post a quick peek of what I’m working on this weekend.
I love this job!!!!
Kara and Zach are expecting!!
When I found out, I pretty much begged them to let me shoot their maternity photos… After our engagement session a few years ago, I just couldn’t wait to get them back in front of my camera! Really – anyone that brings a miniature Knight in Shining Armor to their engagement session is going to melt my heart pretty dang quickly. :)
Kara and Zach are the most amazing couple – so beautiful and kind and genuinely, completely in love with each other. If baby gets even a smidgen of the love they show, she’ll be the most loved baby girl on the planet. Such a lucky girl!
