Lila at Five

Lila’s back! You can see her here at three, here at four, and now she’s five and all dressed up in her new party dress. 🙂 This was my second photo shoot at the Schick-Ostolasa Farmstead at Dry Creek and it couldn’t have been more perfect for Lila and her new dress on a beautiful overcast day. I was in heaven shooting this charismatic little girl. She is just the sweetest thing, smiles and giggles constantly and rarely says a word – although I’m quite sure that’s not the case at home. The rooster was excited to see us and did most of the talking — crowing up a storm at 5:30 PM — but with no neighbors to bother, it was fine. This is a learning farm so there are dozens of chickens, turkeys, goats, and ducks out there. Now onward to this vivacious little Lila (and pretty momma Crystal) and all her sweet faces guaranteed to make you smile.

I try to get a nature shot every photo session, and thought the rooster would have to suffice, but as luck would have it as we were leaving, this dragonfly was just waiting for me. Thank you dragonfly, and thank you Crystal for yet another fun hour with you and one of your kids. You guys always make me smile. 🙂 Mary

Oh my, she was a handful of adorable. I love the ones of her running in front of the door and the little close mouthed smirk of her looking over her shoulder. Good luck choosing, Crystal!

This is what happens when you pair a natural talent who instinctively knows how to capture personalities with a energetic little girl who happily participates. 🙂 Mary and Lila work very well together! I’m so pleased, as always!

Thank you Crystal and I’m glad you liked them. We sure had fun! Great kids you have – both of them. I always look forward to my time with them. ?

Lila is just adorable and I didn’t even have to see her mom’s name or her picture to know exactly who she belongs to! Her momma and my daughter went to school together. Crystal, Lila is so sweet and precious! Mary, you take such great photos! I always enjoy stopping by every couple of weeks to see what’s new!! Love your photos!

Judy, how nice was that comment! Very cool the connection people have in life. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop in and I agree that Lila is just adorable in every way. 🙂 Mary
