Favorite Photo Friday {Waiting for the Snow}

She has been patiently waiting for the snow to arrive.

Lucky for her it arrived today...and it's the beautiful stick to everything, snowball packing, snowman kind...

The bad news?

Charlie has eaten 3 pairs of her gloves this winter and she lost her last pair yesterday on the bus....

The Changing Light

The light has begun to change again around here...and I love to follow it and see where it takes me. For this session we started indoors in the kitchen and then headed into the woods.

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”


Sunday Snapshot

Looking back I have no idea why it took me time to embrace who she is and that she wasn't frilly and pink and baby doll loving. Now I can't imagine her any other way....ever.

Love this girl to the moon and back and to the moon and back and to the moon and back {as she would say}....

Sunday Snapshot {Counting the Rings}

She's been sick for over a week and it has made its' way through everyone in the house now. This morning she woke up and drew a "Cycle of Sickness". Her words, not mine. She started off with Kristen, Gene's girlfriend {Sorry Kristen!} and from there it went to Gene, her, and so on. She labeled everyone's symptoms. She put down asthma for Kristen...I saw fever, sore throat and cough thrown in the chart too.

Here's hoping to a fresh start this week!

A Bit Under the Weather...

Both kids have been feeling a bit under the weather lately...I can see it in her eyes in these images. This little shoot was completely her doing. We planned on visiting the Peace Garden through our woods, but found it closed and netted for the winter. She liked this pine tree. I think I love it.

Favorite Photo Friday{What's My Deservement?}

Every time Linhsey finishes up a quick shoot with me she will ask " What's my deservement?" It's her own way of asking what does she deserve for doing such wonderful work for me.

Sometimes it's cheese. She loves cheese.

Sometimes it's chocolate. She loves that too.

Sometimes it's even a slice of turkey for the vegetarian girl...

Today it was a lollipop...
