Magic Carpet | Pelham Kids’ Photographer

“You have a magic carpet
That will whiz you through the air
To Spain or Maine or Africa
If you just tell it where.
So will you let it take you
Where you’ve never been before,
Or will you buy some drapes to match 
And use it
On your
~ Shel Silverstein
 I’ve got soooo many great sessions to share with you here on the blog, my friends. Lots of catching up to do. But this one, the one I’m about to show you, is one I’ve been looking forward to blogging for a long time.  This one had lots of things going for it.  One beautiful house.  Two sweet and gorgeous girls.  Girls who know me now, and who like to play.  A mom who truly appreciates the importance of capturing them being little girls together, and whose favorite photos are the same as mine — the ones that show them playing and being themselves.   And the biggest ingredient of this session — the one that made it especially fun — was the girls’ GIANT imaginations.

As they say — a picture is worth a thousand words, and the photos of this ‘playdate’ tell the story better than my words could … so I’ll just give you a quick summary and let the photos speak for themselves.  Fresh out of their baths in matching dresses, we started in the kitchen with a little snack of Ritz crackers.  Then, we played.   And played.  And played.  I was treated to a meal at a lovely place called the Raspberry Tavern.  Where fancy voices are required.  And then we played some more.  And dressed up.  And there was also some dancing.


I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.
