a girl called lavender

Yes, indeed. It’s Lavender Darling Barnes — possibly the best name in the entire world — and I’ve been fortunate to have been photographing her since she was a baby. Now that she’s hit the “Big 3” (as she announced when she saw me), it was time for another session.

Boy, does this girl have personality! She’s animated, talkative and hysterical. One of her great conversation starters is “Where you got that?, while pointing at a garment or accessory you have on. She’s also prone to then ask, “Nordstrom?”, or even “Salvation Army?”

Lest we not accomplish anything, the first two settings were at my house. You’ve got to work fast with Lavender, as she doesn’t stay put for more than a second. Then we set off to a “Secret Garden” in North Laguna. Actually the beautiful home of my daughter’s boss. It was positively perfect. So happy with the results.

While she may look like an angel, the girl's got a lot of the Dickens in her :-)
