Maya is THREE!!


I’ve been so back logged with work that I haven’t gotten a chance to work on these images from Maya’s 3 year Birthday pictures last weekend besides the sneak peek I did on Instagram!  All that said…these aren’t really my favorite images haha.  Kind of a great problem to have, no??!!  I found out early on in my photography career that props, fancy set ups and “grand intentions” were NOT for me.  I’m way more about capturing the emotion on the fly and LOVING moments in between.  That said…I give MAD PROPS to all the photographers that do all the complex set ups.  It takes time and not to mention pressure on everyone to make it work!!!  I obviously can’t handle all that pressure!! 🙂

Can we also just acknowledge that my shirt was completely wrinkle free when I left the house. And by wrinkle free, I mean I spray bottled it 15 minutes prior to leaving while I ran around getting Maya ready.  It’s my favorite time saving tip, because WHO HAS TIME TO IRON??!!  Yet, sadly…you’d never know… :{Blog See by Chloe Peasant Top COH destroyed High Waisted Skinny Sam Edelman Booties-1 Blog See by Chloe Peasant Top COH destroyed High Waisted Skinny Sam Edelman Booties-2 Blog See by Chloe Peasant Top COH destroyed High Waisted Skinny Sam Edelman Booties-3 Blog See by Chloe Peasant Top COH destroyed High Waisted Skinny Sam Edelman Booties-4 Blog See by Chloe Peasant Top COH destroyed High Waisted Skinny Sam Edelman Booties-5Every year since I took Maya’s newborn pictures, I’ve used pumpkins.  What OCD Professional Photog Mama wouldn’t take her own newborn pictures a week after having a C-section??   Here is her one week old pics.  I was still new to newborn photograpy, and have lots of regrets/wish I would have known this or that, but…all that said, so happy I was able to capture my own images, as flawed as they might be.  I mean, how could I not??  And then…her ONE YEAR SHOOT!!  Gah, I die… That chubby little nugget!!  SO CUTE, I can hardly stand it!!  And THEN…her two year shoot that I lazily did in the alley up the street from our house.  Soooo, the tradition had to continue.  This time at a park close to our house.Blog Baby Gap Yellow Dress Osh Kosh Leopard Booties-2Blog Baby Gap Yellow Dress Osh Kosh Leopard Booties-3Blog Baby Gap Yellow Dress Osh Kosh Leopard Booties-4OMG, there’s just something about this next one that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!Blog Baby Gap Yellow Dress Osh Kosh Leopard Booties-5And then, the typical…see ya, Mom!Blog Baby Gap Yellow Dress Osh Kosh Leopard Booties-61 FB Maya 3 year IG previewBlog Baby Gap Yellow Dress Osh Kosh Leopard Booties-7On me…

Hahaha.  This image is SOOOOO Maya!!!  I LOVE IT!!!  Yet, I probably wouldn’t post it normally, because…well, duh.  But, it’s so her.  Screaming randomly about NOTHING.  It’s not a fit, nor a tantrum, just….a scream :}  To which, I always say “Shhhh, “their sleeping”.  I kid you not.  She’s repeated it to me so many times.  “Their sleeping”.  Yes, that means, be quiet 😉
