Laurens Mum Chantel booked her baby girl in for one of my daughter sessions. The first time I photographed her she was amazing it was freezing cold.... I've never seen a kid with such a BIG smile before... she was so happy even in the worst weather conditions.


She performed for me the ocean her stage.... Now I went home after her session and looked through her images. I was kind of gutted that we didn't have her booked in the best of the Golden hour light. She was such a bright and sprakly kid I wanted to do better for her so I emailed her Mum and asked if we could try again.


I am a perfectionist.So we tried again a week later..... yup her fine art portraits below pretty much say it all.


This kid is larger than life. She is one the biggest personalities that I have met for a while. A star in the making!!! I added a few of those bloopers in here for you Mum.


The out-takes are just as magic as the intakes.


I have my next round of Daughter Sessions on the 27th and 28th of October. Currently I am fully booked for 2018 but I might see I can squeeze in around 3 in November if your keen to know about these first hand send me your email address. Ill keep you in the know!!!

Thanks Lauren keep spreading your sunshine little ladie xo Awhina
