I absolutely loved this session. Baby Emily is such a doll, and I just adore her. It is so very obvious she is SO very loved. Good job Mom and Dad, she is perfection.
Also, big thanks to Woodsy Wonders Props for such amazing quilts! All quilts used are offered in her shop.
I haven’t posted in awhile, so I thought I would throw together some of my iphone images from the last week or so. I am totally guilty of using my iphone instead of carrying around my camera all the time, and it used to bother me that I would have an image on my iphone that I wished I had on my real camera… but sometimes its nice just to be able to quickly snap an image in the moment and then tuck my phone back into my pocket. These are some of those quick moments that I have recently snapped. <3
When a sun sets into a golden orange… and you can close your eyes and feel it on your face.. the kind that makes the inside of your eyelids turn red, the kind you can almost smell summer memories in… you can feel your heart let go of the things that do not matter. We are going through some changes in our lives right now… and in the chaos of all the decisions and noise we lose track of the important things. Obstacles get in the way of your hopes and darkness can overwhelm you… but if you can find that one piece of sky that is still shining orange, shut your eyes tight and know that everything will be just as it is supposed to be, then you can remember good things never come easily. It was quiet in the forest yesterday, when I look at these images I can hear the girls giggles echoing through the trees, the distant sound of farm animals, and smell the fresh green grass and wet moss taking over under our toes. Sometimes in chaos all we need is to be still and watch the sunset. That is just what we did. A sunset has the ability to put important things into perspective… and offer the chance to thank God for all of the beauty He is constantly painting around us. Well… I watched… the girls played and danced and twirled. It painted something enchanted in my mind… and hopefully in theirs too. These are the memories I hope to print in their hearts… so that one day, they too, can close their eyes and *feel* the days of their childhood.
appy and free… just as a child should be.
This Easter was different… we celebrated my husbands birthday on Friday with his family… and then celebrated Easter on Saturday with my family (and his birthday again, he is just *that* special)… then we just relaxed in our jammies all day Sunday. We had full intentions for a coast trip, but the weather at the coast was rain with another side of rain… so… we opted for a cozy day at home instead. Here are some images from our weekend fun weekend.
