Childrens Portraits in the Orchard | Stella+Ava

These childrens portraits in the orchard make me giddy. I have wanted been DYING to do a children’s portrait session in an orchard like this during blooming time for many years. Like at least 4. But Las Vegas doesn’t have anything like this, and until we moved our photography business to the Sacramento and Napa area, it was impossible to plan the trip at just the right time. The blooms only last 5 days or so (depending on the wind and rain) and usually people like to plan their sessions in advance (of course they do) and so it’s tough to get the session in!
You’ll see that I had the PERFECT little models to shoot with. These two girls warm my families’ hearts like toasted marshmallows. They are cousins, just two months apart and are the best friends. Some of my BEST childhood memories involve my own cousins. Cousins are far more fun than siblings, and have a fun connection that makes them better than friends. It’s a relationship like no other.
I asked Ava and Stella what they liked about each other and here’s what they had to say.

Stella: “I like coloring with Ava and playing with her. And Running. I like her.”
Ava: “I like Stella because she is funny and goofy.”

It was magical in the orchard, even for me. It really did feel like a wonderland of sorts. The petals fall like snow, and create this ethereal mood. I know I’m easily impressed by nature (especially trees) but this was over the top for me. It brings tears to my eyes as I think about our little lemonade in the orchard photo shoot- and I hope that it somehow helps them look back and remember the way their friendship felt when they were little together. (and I hope they forget that they didn’t really like the lemonade. ; )
