Last week my niece came to visit and she is my favorite two year old in the world! She is sweet, polite, fun, and the happiest kid I know! She’s a delight. She was good enough to help me out by being my model for my promo shoot and we had a blast! I’m very excited about the Mini Sessions I’ll be doing over the summer at Woodside Farm Creamery called “Ice Cream Social Mini Sessions”. It’s a fun new idea I had and I hope it’s a success because it was so much fun to photograph my niece for the promo session. I truly have the best job ever!
She and all of my kids went over to Woodside in Hockessin and set up a cute little scene for the portraits. I brought some antique milk bottles, flowers, cherries and sprinkles, and of course vanilla ice cream! I took some portraits of her without the ice cream first and then gave her a few scoops and the fun really started! She topped her cone all by herself. What kid wouldn’t love that? The results were too cute! Getting messy at the end of the day is all part of being a kid! I love to watch what happens when kids are able to be themselves! They truly light up and have the time of their life when they are allowed to just relax and have fun!!
Going out for ice cream is one of our favorite things to do, of course. Before we moved to Hockessin, we were trying to decide where we wanted to live up here. I wanted a small town feeling and when I looked up “things to do in Hockessin”, I got that feeling. I saw so many restaurants and small businesses in town and got really excited. Woodside was one of the ones that I noticed first. It had such a beautiful setting with the old brick buildings and outdoor seating areas for kids and families to relax and enjoy a summer treat. I actually thought to myself, when we first moved here and came to Woodside for the first time, “I’d love to photograph here some day.” I was a part of their Fall Festival in October (and will be again this fall) and now I’m doing Mini Sessions there this summer! So, stop by in July for my Mini Sessions and the kids can enjoy a FREE scoop of ice cream with toppings to put on all by themselves if they are photographed! They will thank you for allowing them to get a little messy and just have fun! Isn’t that really what summer is all about?
