Living the life of a tween with so much at her feet….

So many interests and only so much time! 😉 Tap dancing, graffiti, hippy love (with a splash of duck lips of course) how can one can go wrong? You can’t look at a photo of Miss L and not smile, or laugh just because this gal is nothing but a big ball of fun. This session doesn’t even begin to cover the things she is interested and very passionate about, she is more than willing to have a conversation about all the things she loves and make you forget that she isn’t even in High School yet!

I have to say as well that while Miss L has a wide variety of interests, she also has a mature sense of the world. While I had the pleasure of spending time with her we not only talked about random preteen topics, but also current events and concerns she had in general of the world she was growing up in. It isn’t often I get to spend time with a tween who is so honest and open about their concern for others. I am not saying that I know a bunch of selfish kids, please don’t misunderstand! However, it seems in the world today, it isn’t the “cool” thing at a young age to openly express boldly what you believe is wrong, dangerous or scary.  I found it very promising that Miss L had no fear in doing so. I believe this one will leave her mark on our world, it is just a matter of time!

Fun with Miss E

When it’s not terribly freezing out but it is still beautifully winter whatever are you to do? Go out and play of course! Miss E and I had a blast at Mendon Ponds playing in the snow, drinking cocoa and visiting with all the local wildlife. What you can’t see in some of these photos is all the deer that decided to come out and see just what she was up to! I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed the adventure!

Miss E’s Winter Session

Meet Miss E! She was the lucky winner of a Winter Session that seemed to never come. 😉 Mother Nature apparently had plans on holding out the snow on us until the last minute. FINALLY we had some this past weekend and took full advantage. You have probably seen Miss E in the Swimming and Volleyball posts-I have caught her a few times in her sport activities. This time I had the chance for a little one on one portrait work. It was only 16 degrees and a bit windy, but totally worth it- don’t you think?

Miss S- Rainy day in the City

Not too many girls would voluntarily go out adventuring into the city- but this girl was up for it. We may have choose a rainy and rather windy afternoon but we made it to all the spots on our list-but more! We even had a coffee house included in that list. If you are ever in the Rochester, NY area you MUST stop in to Java’s. The BEST cupcakes and lattes your taste buds could ever ask for.
You may recognize Syd from a few posts back, she joined me on a Best Friend Session. So if you think she looks familiar- that may be why! Or maybe you noticed her in our swimming photos- she is one of our few girls that swim with the boys and have to meet their times. Yes, she is pretty awesome! I am sure you will see here showing up here again! 🙂

Spring in February?

How about this crazy weather? Being someone that doesn’t enjoy the cold, I am not complaining! But because I know that in our area of New York the weather can change at the drop of a hat, Kayla and I took full advantage. We grabbed a tutu, some great balloons and headed off to battle the crazy wind! Mother Nature may have won most of our battles for shots throughout the day but I would say that we won the war. I mean did Kayla kill this shoot or what? So gorgeous!

Best Friends- E & N

Can I just tell you how much fun this was? Out of all the things these two could choose to do during their session- they choose to bake! It was a great time watching these two in what is obviously their element. They made cookies and Nutella Rice Krispie treats. Sure there were times when chaos erupted- Nutella on noses, cookie dough being eaten, etc but these gals sure know how to have good old fashion fabulous fun!

 

Best Friends- K, K, B

My second set of Best Friends and these gals are dancers! Not just any sort of dancers, they take things to the extreme. They brought their pointe shoes to our session- so fun paired with jeans! We had a great time exploring the SUNY Geneseo Campus looking for different places to combine with their point shoes but also their matching Converse sneakers. Girls after my own heart there- anyone that knows me well knows that I have my very own collection of them! I hope to get these girls behind my camera another day, such a great time!
