As a mother of three boys, I have the slight tendency to notice little girls. Especially sweet little girls with eyes like these:
Isn’t she to die for!! Anyhow, this sweet little girl goes to my boys’ pre-school. I have been admiring her all year long – the eyes, the hair, and the cutest personality!! I was really happy that she and her family came to Jack’s 5th. birthday party (last month). Her mom and I had an instant connection of – 3 kids, and ALL that comes with the third! You are now outnumbered and getting through the days, especially when they are still babies. She mentioned to me that she still had to send out a birth announcement for her baby and I just compassionately laughed and said, “I get it! Don’t worry people understand, it will happen when it happens.” A couple of weeks later I was SO honored when she asked me to take their family pictures and help with the baby announcement!
We went to a neat, wooded park called, Montevalle Park. I somehow forgot, (blame it on my 3 kids), that it was the solar eclipse RIGHT during our entire session. The lighting was so unique – a golden, amber, muted light. I kept on saying, “Wow, the light is so interesting!” Ha! What a dork I can be!! Anyhoo, I’m pretty happy with the results of that ‘interesting light’. I hope you agree!
Not only is she a beautiful girl, but look at her beautiful, ahem – handsome brothers!
Gorgeous kids = gorgeous parents!
A couple more of my favorites…
Thank you to this sweet, sweet family for letting me capture this special, crazy time in their lives! I totally get this phase that they are in and love that I was to take a step back and enjoy these moments from behind my lens ;)!
