Last Session in the 2012 Sunflowers

This Mom stumbled upon an ad of ours in a Charlotte retail store in mid-July when the sunflowers were in full swing.  We had a whirlwind wardrobe session to get her group camera-ready (which she pulled off BEAUTIFULLY thanks to that awesome striped Lilly Pulitzer dress!) We squeezed the “A” family in as the last official sunflower portrait session for the 2012 season and what a sweet way to end our summer shoots!

They were troopers too with a muddy start to our morning.  But, with enough singing and dancing by that crazy photographer lady (moi) and her awesome lighting assistant (Alyssa), we got some sweet smiles from the kiddos.  I was so touched when her twins wanted to “replant” the stems we had cut for our basket of flowers.  They took time to stand each flower back up in the field……aren’t children just precious?

Check out Ava’s last image where she keeps asking me….”all done?  all done?”  When kids are done, they are DONE!  Too funny:) Enjoy the Allora family’s images below.
