Sunshine and Smiles

The second child. It seems as if the number of photos I have of her is only about a 1/4 of what I have of her big sister. So, I try to make a point of pulling out my camera.

This quick photo session of Ellie as she was playing in the yard only took 10 minutes.

Seriously. 10 minutes.

Any longer and I would have never been able to keep a walking 1-year-old contained by myself.

So, when you feel like you need some updated photos of your kiddo… take 10 minutes and snap some. Go to the park or just play in the back yard. You might be amazed at what you can capture. Nothing staged or posed….just life.

I am so thankful I took the time to get a few updated photos of my Ellie.

Early Spring Fun!

About 2 months ago I took my daughter to Nay Aug Park to explore and to jump in the puddles with her new rain boots. This is when I try to not be “the photographer” and I try to just go with the flow capturing fun moments with my girl. That is, when I am not walking in the puddles with her.

So, do not expect perfect lighting, perfect poses or perfect camera settings. Just a mom… having fun with her kiddo. Here are some pics from our day!

 

First a quick stop in the tree house.

 


Now it is time to look for puddles. There were not many here but running in the water is fun.

Checking out the beach chairs.

I call this look the “Mom, not ANOTHER photo” look.


A photo merge of Lucy running, stopping, and then running again, through her first puddle.


A soggy stop at the pavilion. I really love this pavilion and plan on shooting here more this summer. Even though she reminds me all the time that she is a big girl, she still looks so tiny here.

Look mom, an acorn cap!

Then, we found a larger puddle.


A larger puddle means… water in our boots and mud on our pants.

And, an even larger puddle.

Treading carefully.

More water in her boots.

Time to JUMP!

And… JUMP…

And…SPLASH!

She looks so sweet here. So peaceful. My little angel.


Checking out the “damage”. Boy, did she have a lot of water in her boots. But, it was a fun day!

 

I hope you enjoyed looking at photos of our day. Now, get outside and capture some memories of your own!
