Madelyn's Fruit Bath | San Diego Child Portraits


Okay sorry, just had to get that out of the way. I’ve had a fruit bath session in my brain for YEARS, but I never really had the opportunity to do it. I’m SO excited that I finally had a chance… and it was with my OWN sweet little girl!

I’d like to pretend that I did these in September on purpose as a “farewell to summer” but in actuality, I’m just the worst at taking my own kids’ photos with my “real” camera. I almost decided it was too late & scrapped the shoot, but I happened to be at Sprouts last week & on a whim grabbed some extra fruit & flowers & did the dang thing.

I’m glad I practiced on my own kid because this basin was far from waterproof and my poor husband had to run back and forth from the hose with a pitcher (our hose didn’t reach far enough) to keep the tub full. It was quite the scene but I promised him it would be worth it & I have to say, it totally was! So check out just a handful of my favorite shots of my sweet girl!

Liberty Station Child Portraits | San Diego Child Photographer

The first time I photographed these kids, they were still in their mama’s tummy! I’ve photographed them twice yearly since (their birthday portraits in the spring & their family portraits in the fall!) and it’s always SO much fun. Lots of giggles, smiles, funny noises, and silly games. Liberty Station in Point Loma is one of my favorite spots & provided a perfect backdrop for their 6th birthday portraits!
