Even though I’m not really ‘doing photo sessions’ anymore, sometimes a past client does the right amount of arm-twisting (like having an adorable 2nd baby) that it convinces you to go on out and try shooting again for a change. Baby Audrey was just a precious 3 days old when I got to her and was pure baby bliss to photograph. I can’t believe it was only 2 years ago that I was doing this same thing with big sister Charlotte!! This family was one of the first clients I had when I began my business and to this day I’m forever grateful that they trusted me behind the lens and allowed me to capture some beautiful memories their family. I have so many more images to share with you guys — hang on tight the rest will be on the way real soon!! xo.
I absolutely adore little girls, especially my own! (I am a little biased I know). The best part about little girls? The clothes. The shoes. And….the accessories!! When Brie was born one of the first places we frequented for her accessories was UnBOWlievable.Â The fact that I could find a hair piece customized to match any of her outfits was amazing. We started with headbands, and as she has grown and begun to spout beautiful thick hair we’ve been able to upgrade to velvet clips. When she gets a bit older she’ll be able to retire the velvet and move on to a new kind of clip.Â But, this presents us with a different problem. What do we do with all of the beautiful newborn headbands she is no longer wearing and probably won’t wear again?
Well…UnBOWlievable is gearing up to launch a new product thisÂ fall that aims to fix this problem. A product that allow hair pieces to grow with a child and be used for years and years and years. I’m not allowed to say to much, but I can show you a little sneak peek of a shoot we did this past week modeling their new product. Same bow. Eight Ways. Soft bands. Hard Bands. Velvet Clips. No Velvet Clips. Hair Up. Hair Down. The possibilities are endless. And they will be coming to UnBOWlievable soon.
Oh and I couldn’t resist this one…I little slice of spring to start your Monday off right. 🙂
If you have a little girl, and have not been to the store UnBOWlievable in the Dulles Town Center mall you need to RUN not walk and get yourself there! Co-owners Kristin and husband Chad excel in creating classy, colorful, stylish and affordable hair accessories for infants all the way to young adults. I had the pleasure of meeting Kristin back in November while shopping for Brie and she is one of those people you feel like you’ve known a lifetime.Â She was so kind and helpful while shopping and made accessorizing my little one a breeze!
UnBOWlievable is gearing up for a fantastic 2011 and this weekend I had the opportunity to work with some adorable little models showing off their January 2011 product line and some of their other amazing products.Â K., C. , E.1, E.2, M., and their families were troopers for being so willing to spend a chilly afternoon at the Waterford Mill in historic Waterford. VA. They all came super prepared with multiple coats, boots, scarves, and mittens in coordinating colors with the many bows and hats we had to shoot.Â And, the snowy backdrop was the perfect scene for these girls to strike a pose! They were so good at posing that I had a difficult time narrowing down my favorites from our session.
Here is a sneak peek of the UnBOWlievable January product line.Â I am excited to share these images first on the blog, but you may just see some of them hangingÂ in store too come 2011! Thanks again to the families for all of your assistance and flexibility.Â And, a big thank you to Kristin for your organization and makingÂ our shoot happen. You all made my job easy!
This may be one of the bravest most adventurous families I’ve had the chance to work with to date. When the K. family contacted me to do a session in early December I knew we were going to be in for some chilly weather, but I didn’t expect it to dip to temperatures in the mid 30’s so quickly!Â It was definitely colder than average for our holiday session in Brunswick, MD but Daria, Jeremy and son Logan braved the cold with no complaints and I think the results were well worth it! We met up at the train station in downtown Brunswick and captured some shots around the station and down by the C&O canal before heading inside for warm drinks at the local cafe. K, family, thank you for being so open to time outdoors in the cold, I had a great time getting to know you and capturing these special photos. Here is preview of our time outdoors, I can’t wait to show you the rest!
