a evening in the park: Nia {Family Portrait Photographer, Tacoma WA}

Shooting Nia was such a blast!  We loved it.  Her pretty chocolate skin and her fun personality won Isaiah and I over in a big way. Nia's mom contacted us in a effort to freeze time and to remember her sweet girl at THIS age for ever.  8 years old??!  They grow up so fast!

Nia was hesitant to perform in front of the camera, but a little hoola hoop competition and bubbles, who could not melt to the forces of the Nikon!

Although mom was fighting it, we convinced her to jump in a few shots AND I am so glad she did.  She thought she was doing this to freeze time to remember Nia, but what a gift for Nia to remember mom on that special day in the park!
