Oh my goodness I just loved Reece's entire session so much! She was a riot and so so adorable. She loved the cake and gave me some incredible expressions! I also love the modern + minimal simplicity of the setup, these tend to be my favorite types of sets because they really allow these precious little subject's souls to shine through -- no distractions! One of my favorite parts about my job is designing and dreaming up sets for sessions. Everything I use has been either carefully searched for in antique stores, flea markets, and online or I have made it myself! I love being creative in many ways and making my own props is definitely an important and fun part of the process for me. The outfit she is wearing was made by me using vintage fabric & lace trim. I also made her headband. I just love girls in blues and floral! I found the stool at a local antique shop and chalk painted it myself. The vase was also found at an antique shop/consignment store; I just love anything hobnail! I bought the florals at my local Marianos and arranged them. Mom brought the adorable cake! Lastly, the cake stand I bought at good ol' TJ Maxx. As you can see, I put a lot of thought and effort into styling my sessions, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

She was cleaning up! :)
Truth, sometimes the cry faces and the "fails" are my favorite!
