The initial plan for Ada’s portrait was to take a ride up to Lincoln Woods. Ada has been going there with her mom since she was a peanut. She comes from an outdoorsy family that loves to be close to mother nature. When her mom spied this amazing hut during a walk through Roger Williams Park she had a whole new idea for Ada’s photos. Her mom, Mandy, is a super talented artist. Just look up at the top of my web site. See that banner? Mandy designed it. The hut inspired Mandy to add a little something to our photo shoot. She texted me “I’m bringing something for the photos. I went to RISD so bear with me”. I totally trust Mandy and knew whatever she had in mind would be (as she would say) rad. When she showed up with this cool bird mask for Ada that she made that morning I was very excited to start the shoot!
There she is!
Mandy jumped in for some pictures. Unfortunately Ada’s Daddy is camera shy. That’s right, Derrick. I’m calling you out.
Love this one!
What a beautiful day in November!? The weather has been so crazy! I’m not complaining though.
Ada is used to maneuvering through the woods. I think she is better at it than I am. It’s in her blood.
Wearing Mom’s necklace as a headband…
Tickling her face with the grass…
The many expressions and emotions of Ada…
Seriously! What a gorgeous day it was!
She was very excited to show me all the rocks she found.
Such a beautiful little girl.
