Willow in Autumn

Willow, get ready to blow out one more candle on your birthday cake!

We had a super sunny, windy, chilly day to capture your family, and it was fun x three!

This tiny tot just turned TWO and is mesmerized by all the magic of the Christmas season! She has the clearest, bluest eyes and gorgeous eyelashes … as well as perfect “angelic” hair!

Willow held the soft, plush baby Jesus and rocked him in front of the Christmas tree while I enjoyed every minute of this session for her family.

Merry Christmas to Willow and her entire family, and may your new year be bright and wonderful!

In the Eyes of a Child

ImageThere are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million.  ~Walt Streightiff

When I got to capture photos of little W for her mommy and grandma at the playground, I hoped so much to catch the bright lights sparkling in her blue eyes! Though W was working hard on getting new teeth, and enjoyed being held by her mommy while I got some closeups, she had fun on the slide and tilty swing. Her face especially lighted up when she saw the “baa baas” and the mini-goats in the farm area of the park.

Words to describe W include words in these favorite quotes of mine … wonder; radiant; light; fresh; thought of God. And beautiful!

The brightest light, the light of Italy, the purest sky of Scandinavia in the month of June is only a half-light when one compares it to the light of childhood. Even the nights were blue.   ~EUGENE IONESCO, Present Past / Past Present

Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever fresh and radiant possibility.   ~Kate Douglas Wiggin

Eyes are truly the windows to one’s soul. God bless this dear, cherished soul!

Happy 18 month birthday!

 

A Wee Bit of Heaven

Almost a year ago …

A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above, 
   a handful of happiness, a heartful of love.

Singing, dancing, clapping her hands, laughing and smiling, and trying her best to make a fast getaway — Willow is so good at all of these!

On a cold, windy Autumn day, I got together with her and her grandparents for an indoors playtime/photo shoot. Willow got to meet and greet Leo the Lion, my vintage puppet, who never fails to set the friendly tone for our time together.

This almost-year-old babe/toddler is pure joy–she fills many hearts with love!

Her grandpa already has her helping him in the garden, and grandma has shown her around the kitchen too. But for now, Willow prefers the bookshelf, where she sits surrounded by all her colorful storybooks.  In the Spring I look forward to capturing her with her trowel and watering can.

Six Month Old Sweetheart

Willow Sophia is six months old already and her sweet personality shines through every minute spent with her!

Her mommy and both grandmas thought it was about time for some new photos to go into their special frames.

Fresh as a daisy … three generations together …

and playtime in her Grandma’s beautiful backyard …

Willow wins the Miss Congeniality Award! And an Awesome Wardrobe Award too!



Thanks for the fun morning!

God blessed us with beautiful weather and a great time together!
