Our plan was actually to meet and do this in the Fall, before it got very cold outside but busy lives took over and we found ourselves squeezing this photoshoot in on the day before her baptism, right in the cold of January!
There was snow on the ground and a definite chill in the air, but this bright and sunshiney little girl didn't let that stop her from smiling!
We wrapped her in a blanket and shot photos in short bursts of a few minutes at a time, with breaks in the warm car to warm her and her little pink nose!
I love photos like this that show the details in her carefully chosen dress for this meaningful day.
Brooklyn was such a trooper and stayed happy the whole time we shot, even though it was freezing outside! For the next photo, I was sitting underneath an icy tree, on a snow pile. You can't see it because I Photoshopped it out, but there were clumps of snow all around her feet!
I love this girl and I loved the opportunity to help document this special time in her life, and to be present at her baptism the following day. We're so happy to be close with our Utah family while we're living here!
