Lucy's 4- year-old photoshoot

My little darling Lucy has turned four years old! I simply can NOT believe she is only home one more year before full-time school begins! Oh my...to be a teacher and to be on the other side of the equation will be interesting... :-)

I have so many talented friends who are photographers, but here's my challenge with booking someone for a particular session...it's a crap shoot whether your child (or children) will be in a proper, festive, happy-go-lucky mood, or if they will be an absolute rotten, whiny, ready-to-list-them-on-ebay mood on the day of the photo session. And if you happen to be very unlucky and have a demon on your hands the day of your photos, you're done. Good luck getting anything you might like.

So, I decided to take a chance and capitalize on the times Lucy is in a happy mood, and just see what I could capture on my own. For the "theme" of these photos, I wanted to capture her current personality best. And she is still obsessed with clothes, shoes, and fashion. (Where she got it I'm not sure :)

When we were blessed with a particularly happy Lucy, I told her she could wear her favorite outfits. My favorite outfit is her bright lime-green, too-small leotard, blue and purple very full tulle tutu, pink feather boa, and crocheted floppy hat with velvet flowers. Take that Fashion Police! :)

And I have to say, I'm really happy with how these photos turned out. I made a 16 X 20 collage from Costco for $5.99, and I love it!


Note the TWO glitter purses!

This is a classic Lucy face here...we get this look often :)

Could she look anymore grownup!?!

Spin, spin, spin!!!

Love this face!

Sneaking some jellybeans! I love my candy fiend!


  1. These are adorable! True Lucy style for sure! She has so much personality! We love Lucy! :)

  2. Such great pictures and she is just beautiful! I still can't believe Gavin is starting full time school in August - it goes by so fast.
