Isa + Sylvi | Family Portraits Tallahassee

I was thrilled to find out that my cousin Blair and her kids would be visiting from Wyoming and beyond excited that they wanted me to take some pictures! One of things I love about photographing children is you never really know what to expect of your subjects until the exact moment they step in front of the lens. One step out of my car and it was immediately obvious that these little girls were going to make this shoot exciting! Isa (4) and Sylvi (2) charged towards me with huge smiles and arms spread for a hug! YESSSS! Not only were they dressed to perfection in my eyes but their sweet dispositions and sense of humor had me awe struck the entire shoot! Slyvi and Isa are different in many ways and I so enjoyed seeing how each responded to the camera. I couldn't help but laugh while I was going back through the images trying to find a shot with both of them smiling at me - hey, you pick your battles! LOL! I just love how even in the shots together they both seem to be so independent - each with their own idea of how to pose, where to look, how to hold their hands . . . I even learned a thing or two from Miss Isa (future Botanist)! At the end of the day you can only hope for that one picture out of 100 that makes it all worth while. Blair - I hope I captured the true beauty and personality of your precious girls and if you ever need a break I will be more than happy to take those angels off of your hands! I am in love with them!

  3. No words to describe the awesomeness of these pictures. THANKS so much for taking extra time with the girls...it was worth every minute after seeing these beautiful shots. Great seeing you again, too. What a pretty and talented young woman you have grown up to be...long time since 4th grade, huh?

  4. Anna, you are an incredible photographer. It takes having just the right eye to capture children the way you do. You capture all emotions! This means so much to me because I've only seen Sylvi and Isa through pictures. Thanks so much!

  5. Oh, those are the cutest babies ever! Isa looks like a mini-Blair, all mischievous! About the 7th pic down, Sylvi looks like an angel. So adorable!

  6. These are so precious and perfect, AnnaBeth! You have certainly found your calling girl, and I can see that you LOVE what you do, and that is the most important thing! I know that Blair and Nancy are over the moon about these photo's and these girls will be so grateful when they are older, to have their young sweetness captured.
