Kelsea Fehlen, Simplee Photography: Children's Lifestyle!

I just love this adorable life-style series by Wisconsin photographer Kelsea Fehlen of Simplee Photography.  Is there anything cuter than a kid in a bath tub?  I don't think so! From Kelsea:

" I adore light.  The challenge of it.  The beauty of it.  The power it has to completely change a scene before your very eyes.  I also adore life.  The challenge of it.  The beauty of it.  The power it has to completely change a scene before your very eyes.  It is for these reasons that I have long adored lifestyle photography, and would love to incorporate more of these for my clients.  Kiddos snuggled on their parents’ bed, or enjoying a sweet lemonade on the back porch at sunset… Or perhaps a boy soaking in the golden sunshine of an afternoon bath.  I knew for these images I wanted a natural softness.  Warm tones.  A simple setting with cascading light.  And this boy’s brilliant red hair :)

There is nothing more beautiful than a child being themselves in their own place of happiness.  It is their story … and it comes to them naturally!"

Cat's take:

This little boy's red hair and light blue eyes are what make this series amazing! This sort of coloring is only something you see in children, with such smooth, perfect skin and beautiful cherubic face. Just gorgeous.

I immensely concur with Kelsea's words about lifestyle photography: these are the real days of our children's lives! There's something beautiful and natural about recording kids as they really are, as they really exist, day to day. Always posing and dressing up for photo shoots is not the only way to professionally document a growing child's life. And Kelsea Fehlen has found a perfect alternative.
