Fall. Cali. Baby.

California in the Fall. Everyone's excited to get their fall boots out and to dress in lots of layers as fashion suggests they do. The morning air is crisp yet refreshing and depending on what part of California you live in the sun tends to usually melt any sort of chill away by 11am.  

This particular morning, the California sun decided to do just that, gracing us with two seasons in one morning.  

Lucy's fall layers consisting of oranges, purples, mustard yellows and muted tones fit perfectly with our Fall inspired session. She was an absolute ham and my camera appreciated it immensely!

 About 30 minutes into our shoot I have a feeling Summer was feeling lonely because soon enough the morning fog had rolled away and the sun was beaming brightly on our little session. Luckily, the other outfit Lucy's mom had brought was a homemade tutu... and who doesn't love a chunky baby in a tutu!?

Our session of Fall-Mazingness continued and we got some adorable shots of Lucy and Mama Lisa.

My favorite thing about this shoot (besides that cute little turkey pictured below) was the combination of contrast, layers and the patterns. The bright purples contrasted so beautifully with the rolling golden hills in the distance. The layers Lucy wore in the beginning of the session and the chevron and other prints she rocked in her tutu added depth and vibrance to the overall image.

Our hour soon came to an end. But this happy Gerber Baby made my morning with her contagious smiles, her two finger pacifier and her tiny right cheek dimple.

Thank you California Fall for changing leaves, crisp air and warm sunshiney afternoons!
