I was on my way to their home and my gps was having some issues. As I went toward my workaround plan (google), I plugged in their name and address and Southern Living popped up! Their home was featured in Southern Living! How cool is that? So of course, I shared with them my discovery and awe and then she shared with me how not so exciting or awe-inspiring the whole ordeal was. Left me thinking...yeah, well...I suppose things usually aren't what they seem, are they? I had conjured up quite the romantic photo shoot with an art director, lighting rigs, and lots of creative talk. Apparently, that's not really how it shakes down. I consider myself, informed of reality. (Still pretty cool though.)
What a sweet little family and a gorgeous back yard. I want to go back there and sit on the patio and have a glass of tea. So quiet. So peaceful. So serene. No wonder they look so happy...how could one not be happy with all that serenity? :)
If you love strolling through the years, oohing and aaaahing like I do, check out her last 3 birthdays below. Grateful for this family. They are such a treasure.
This year's theme was "every child is an artist". The kids were able to do art stations and create until their hearts content and THEN they got to paint each other. The most fun I've had photographing birthday party since her last one!
Okay, so prolly a truck stop bumper sticker slogan is not where I should have went with the title for this post, however...it does speak to the content in these images.
These girls have graciously allowed me to photograph them for about 6 years now.
How blessed I am to get to watch them grow up into beautiful young ladies!
They're sweet, funny, creative and gorgeous. Here's a few from a couple years back if you're into that kinda thing...clicky
