Contemporary Child Portrait Session with Riley in Downtown Columbus

Riley was one of my two Fresh Face contest winners in the spring and we were finally able to squeeze in her portrait session the other weekend. Although a little on the warm side, we had a great session with the sun shining! Riley really opened up to me and was pretty chatty from the start of our time together. I learned all about her trips to Disney World and her favorite book that she’s reading right now, “Fantastic Mr. Fox”. We had a great session and you can tell from her portraits how relaxed she was during our photo shoot.

When I talked to Riley’s mom to plan the session location and date, I found out that Riley wears Matilda Jane clothes. Once I had that snippet of information, I automatically thought of a location in Downtown Columbus to match her style. A lot of children portrait photographers are in love with the look of these clothes, myself included. If you’re not familiar with Matilda Jane, their items are sold through in-home trunk shows and these colorful, cool and playful pieces really let little girls shine in comfortable and stylish clothes. Riley and her mom came armed with a huge selection of outfits and shoes for her portraits and I let Riley pick her favorites for her session and she made some great selections!

With so many great looks, it was hard to narrow it down to just a few images for this blog post. Here are just a few from Riley’s portrait session in the Arena District.

When Riley appeared in this outfit I knew I had to pull an umbrella out of my trunk to match. Check out those great boots too!

I'm not sure what was so funny for this set, but I love the genuine smile on her face.

Not only does this little girl have a great look (and great hair) but such a fun personality too!
