Earlier this year when Sara contacted me about Ava’s 3 year pictures, I got pretty excited! I got to meet the Richey family last year and just adored them. They are so sweet and down to earth. Ava is seriously one of the most well behaved 3 year olds I have ever gotten to work with! She is sweet natured and her personality seriously shines through in all of her pictures!
Kicking things off with one of my favorites.
Ava clearly loves her parents! I am digging all the color in this picture, btw. Love the bright outfits with the awesome orange wall!
Major concentration going on here.
Enjoying the fruits of her labor. Ava trying to pick these flowers was just way too cute. Sorry for the lack of low reaching flowers for any else who may have stumbled upon this spot! 😉 She wiped them clean!
Ava loved running around Fishers. We shot early morning when it was nice and quite. She had the whole place to herself!
Happiest 3 year old ever!
If you’ve read any of my other blog posts then you know that I am a total sucker for B&Ws. This image is another one of my favorites. I feel like she’ll still be making this face when she’s a teenager. Her parents love it so much that they even ordered it in a canvas. <3
She just hopped on up and started crossing her arms like a pro! If any of you are wondering where her picture perfect dress came from, Sara said she found it at the Farmer’s Market in Broad Ripple. And yes, those are little itty bitty kid sized Sperry’s.
Another one of my favorites of this awesome family!
Those big eyes!
See what I mean about tons of personality?? This may not be the most 100% by-the-rules kind of shot, but it sure does capture the heart of a 3 year old. And I happen to think that’s the part that matters. Mitch, Sara, and Ava, thanks a million for contacting me again this year! It is such a pleasure to spend time with you all and I hope to see you again next year! 🙂
