One of the things I love about being a photographer is that I get to do fun little projects for our family. Last month I did a wolf-themed photo session for my daughter, I've previously done a fun family Christmas card session, and most recently I photographed this session with my daughter's guinea pigs. She is a total animal lover and we got these cute little guys, Copper (the tan and white guinea) and Nickle (the multi color guinea) about six months ago. She loves being a momma to them and like all proud mommas, she needed photos of her babies!
I got the idea for the farm theme after I picked up a miniature cowboy hat for a cake smash session. I thought... how cute would these little guys be wearing a miniature hat? Our neighbor friends happened to have this amazing little John Deere tractor toy that they kindly let me borrow and I picked up a miniature hay bale from Lowes before heading out to my favorite photo spot with my daughter to act as an assistant.
Of course as a brand ambassador for Great Divide Brewing Co, I had to grab a couple shots with an appropriate beer and my favorite shot is Copper chewing on some hay next to a can of Colette, a farmhouse ale, that was perfect for this session.
