Isla the Flower Child My girl has always been a bit of a flower child, so this bohemian styled session was perfect! My Isla is growing up so fast, and It makes me so happy to be able to capture these fleeting moments. I hope one day she will look back with fond memories of photo shoots with mom, laughing together, and the promises of treats(aka bribery). LOL.

I had all the stylings planned, but was still unsure about the location of the shoot until we were driving home from my best friend Nara's house(Isla's hair was styled by Nara). This was shot in San Diego off of Clairemont Mesa Blvd. We came across a little trail winding up this hill. I loved the desert look of the location with sporadic wild flowers here and there.

This session features the adorable bohemian head wrap by Big Time Baby.  Her shop offers handmade crocheted accessories for babies and children.
