As I mentioned in a recent post
I wanted to take some portraits of
a child in the beautiful wildflowers
that line our walking path.
The flowers would be about waist-high
on a five-year-old.
My daughter Lindsay was home
for Father's Day weekend.
I begged her to get little again,
but she wouldn't.
"Then, PLEASE let me at least practice with you,"
"Mom, my hair is pulled back and I'm
not wearing makeup," she groaned.
She finally relented,
but wouldn't smile.
"If I smile, you'll put it on FaceBook."
I finally got the photo, and didn't put it
on FB...but I HAD to put it in here!
Desperate to photograph a lovely little child
surrounded by flowers...
I borrowed one from my
Her niece Katy is five years old.
Lisa said Katy is full of energy
and loves to pose.
I prefer non-posed photos.
I loved when Katy sort of forgot the
camera and just acted like Katy.
But even when she posed,
she was precious.
The weirdest thing...
Katy looks exactly like ME
when I was that age!
It was startling to see myself
through that camera lens.
As we were leaving, I had a sudden
brain flash to photograph Katy with her dad
who was along for the ride.
SOOOO glad we did!
After all that practice,
I felt prepared to photograph
My cousin Jim flew in from California
to stay with us and brought along
She was so adorable...
ALL children...playing in wildflowers
And, daddies with their little girls
are precious beyond words...
