I needed a session to help kick off the Spring Photography season. My sweet 5 year old was happy to help me out.
I love this little face. This little face is sometimes looking like the face of a big girl and that is a lot for my Mama heart to take. But thank goodness she’ll still sit for mini sessions with me, I hope she always will.
When she turns to the side she still has these sweet straight baby hairs. Gracie was a nearly bald baby for her first year of life, and then what grew in where those side hairs. When her curls first appeared they were loopy and only on the top of her head and the back of her neck; she had a mullet for 2 years. So when I see those straight baby hairs and that fresh little face that made me a Mother, I’m almost always over come with emotion.
Don’t put off photographing your children as they grow. You think you’ll remember everything and you won’t. But sometimes, if you’re very lucky, you’ll catch a glimpse of a time before now, and you’ll find yourself in a familiar place of comfort and joy.
