We may have a little problem….three little cuties are all going to be asking for a pony for every birthday and Christmas from here on out! I have never seen the girls so in awe and memorized by anything. These best friends, Kate, Maddie, and Charley, got invited to play on a beautiful farm while the mommies took pictures . Not only was the setting perfect, but the girls were lucky enough to get to ride on a horse! It was icing on the cake for me as a photographer. The evening was filled with games of ring around the rosie, stomping the stairs with their boots, feeding carrots to the horses, and riding tricycles. The girls had an absolute blast and so did the mommies:) It was such a fun way to capture these moments as the girls are growing so quickly. They will all celebrate their 2nd birthdays in the coming month. I am so thankful that God gave me two amazing friends to share in this mommy-hood journey!
My incredibly creative neighbor set up a beautiful scene…white ruffly tent, real wood branches holding it up, adorable pillows, baskets, and accessories. The sun was setting perfectly behind the scene. All I had to do was show up with my camera and bring my daughter dressed in her Easter outfit. It took my breath away when I walked up the scene in the middle of the field in our neighborhood. Then, Kate discovered the grass….the EASTER BASKET GRASS! All she cared about was that pink grass that was made to stay INSIDE the basket. After that moment, nothing else mattered. She didn’t look up at the camera, didn’t smile, and definitely didn’t follow any directions. Kate was completely enthralled by the hypnotic grass. But isn’t that real life? Kids want to play, sometimes with the simplest of things. It may lead to a messy photo scene, but it makes for a fun, joyful life! I will always cherish these pictures and remember the heart of a little girl who just wanted to make a mess:)
My sweet nephew turns 1 today! I tease my sister all the time that she got the angel baby of the family. He has the sweetest and most content personality. Not to mention he is absolutely adorable! My favorite part of his 1 year session was definitely the smash cake portion. Some babies cry and hesitate about getting dirty or quite frankly what to do with the cake that is place in front the. Not Hayden. He drove right in! It didn’t even matter that the cake had fallen off the stand into the grass. He tore it up! Yum yum. I love this boy and cannot wait to celebrate with him.
