I have known Heather since we were in kindergarten. After high school, like with so many people, we fell out of touch and life moved forward. Then...Facebook! Heather found me a few years ago on there and sent me a friend request. Yay! I was thrilled to see she had an adorable daughter, Violet. Miss Violet looked exactly like Heather did at that age. So crazy! I was even more thrilled when Heather asked me to do 6 year photos of Violet here in Eugene. We met at a local orchard and had a great time! We could have talked for days! Violet was a natural in front of the camera too. Such a cutie!
The next Spring, I did took photos when Violet turned 7. These were at a private farm with a 100 year old barn, chickens, horses, a tree swing and a creek. So fun! Some of my favorite photos of a child I've ever taken. I didn't think it could get much better.
This year, for Violet's 8 year photos, we decided to head to the Oregon coast for a retro styled shoot. How fun! Oh my goodness! Heather loves vintage Coca Cola items and other vintage items. Violet was a perfect model, as always, for this shoot. You would never guess that it was very cold and very windy at this sunset shoot. Brrrr! I was freezing with my warm jacket on! Poor Violet only had her cute little dress on. She did great!
The photos turned out better than I could have imagined. Heather ended up with over 100 images! This is just a small sample of those. I'll quit typing now & let the photos speak for themselves.
