THREE YEARS OLD: Amelia & Maywen

I connected with Amelia’s mom & dad when a mutual acquaintance on Twitter volunteered Amelia for the project.

What I didn’t know is that Amelia would bring her neighbor-BFF Maywen to the studio. As soon as these little ladies arrived, there was a whole lot of running and chasing and giggling.

Energy levels were HIGH and the girls were wired. They were having so much fun together and I’m glad I got a few great moments recorded. Frequent snack breaks ensued – I now know that graham crackers are popular with the three year old crowd.

Maywen and Amelia have a playdate every week, and I know Maywen’s going to miss Amelia when her family moves to Texas next month.

Thank you so much to all the parents who took the time to stop by studio hours in August. I had some great laughs at ridiculous three year old logic, and learned a lot about working with these tiny people who live in tiny kingdoms. I’d encourage anyone reading this to consider hiring a photographer to do individual portraits of kids in addition to the normal family portrait type of photos. A child’s life is full of magical moments.
