Every once in a while a client will request a location that just makes my heart SQUEAL!! It's no secret I love sunflowers- they are constantly on my kitchen table, seasonally in my garden (if I can call it a garden??), and even (surprise!!) in my logo. So when this sweet senior requested part of her session take place in a sunflower field I honestly did a little dance.
This natural beauty was so down-to-earth, genuine, and easy going. I enjoyed so much of our time together! I was truly impressed by her violin skills (yes, she actually played for me!) and loved hearing about her future plans and dreams.
Good luck in all you do, Sarah. I know you're going to shine! <3
Recently I've had to trim down my schedule to make quiet, purposeful time with my kiddos. It's so easy to be busy- and busy with 'good things'. But I'm learning that a jammed-pack schedule of 'good things' isn't always what my kids need. I know this season in my life is so fleeting. Before I know it my babes will be at school 5 days a week and my heart will be aching for these days.
Mornings where we could sit and chalk for hours at a time. Have a dance party. Share a snack outside. Snuggle on a rocking chair. Maybe go to the library. Maybe not. We've got no plans. We'll see.
Sometimes I try so hard to expose my kids to so many 'good things' that I forget to just savor this brief moment. Every now and then I get that right. Today I did.
So here's to soaking up their messy hair, chalk-filled bare feet, and crazy dance moves.
My heart needed to stop and see it all today <3 <3
