Lauren Kate was such a fun little girl to photograph…. she has an American Girl doll named Lanie and they had a blast being photographed together.
This session was so nostalgic for me because I loved American Girl dolls too (and still do!!). I had Samantha (who is now retired) and I remember having so much fun with her and the hours I spent playing and dressing her. I did come home after the session and dug her out of my special box from the basement. She still looks great and was dressed in her sailor outfit. I shared her with my daughter and we had fun talking about when I was little and played with dolls. She thought that was really neat and wanted to play with her for a little while. There is an American Girl Doll store in KC that I would love to visit it with Charlotte someday soon.
I know Lauren Kate will treasure the photos of her and Lanie someday. The doll will look the same (maybe a little more worn) in 20 years, but Lauren Kate will be a grown young woman and look totally different. That is what I like most about my “job”… capturing these moments with children and families and getting to relive some moments from my childhood as well. Thanks for a great session Lauren Kate and Lanie!
