AND… I think the outtakes from this session are kind of a big deal so FEAST YOUR EYES ON THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS MADDIE!
Finally, we saw some tadpoles on our way out from the park and I think they’re super cool. There were soooo many!
After we dropped Harper off to her last day of school, we took Hadley out for breakfast where she preferred to act silly instead of eating. After our breakfast, we dropped Hadley off with a sitter/friend and went back to the school to celebrate with Harper.
I love these photos… That is Harper’s amazing teacher, Mrs. Kathy and her certificate which she was so very happy about.
Our Harper owned preschool this year! On her last day, we celebrated with all of her teachers, peers, and other parents by watching a beautiful video put together by Mrs. Kathy and snacks. Her teacher made each student a special photo album with a TON of photos from the year – it’s so special and we will treasure it FOREVER. Get this… every book was made specifically for each student so no two are alike. How awesome is that?
Harper improved in areas of her speech and motor skills a TON this year.. both of my girls had the same speech therapist and she did a great job with them. In the slideshow her teacher showed from the school year, in chronological order, you can really see an improvement in Harper’s eye contact and total overall awareness. Her teacher sent us home with a DVD and Harper has made me watch it at least 10 times and it impresses me a little more each time I watch.
Harper has another year of preschool before she will start Kindergarten and we know she will kick butt next year too! That’s our girl!
Haydn started her last day off with a bath, hence the wet hair in some of these photos. REAL LIFE.
This gorgeous girl has become such a fun YOUNG LADY this year. She started Kindergarten off so SHY and TIMID. She rarely used her words and had a lot of trouble with her receptive and expressive language skills. Thankfully, she has begun to come out of her shell and we couldn’t be prouder.
She really hated me for taking these photos by the brick wall but you know how we moms roll.. if one kid does it, the other does too!
I am so proud of Haydn. She is very BRIGHT but always reverts back to being creative and sentimental. EVERY SINGLE worksheet she brought home this year had a picture on the back and most of them had to do with family and LOVE or princesses and the occasional ninja/superhero. Being who I am, I always looked at them and couldn’t bring myself to throw a single one of them away. She learned to speak up and be BRAVE this year. Her A’s and B’s aside – those life lessons probably mean just as much, if not more. I AM SO PROUD.
I’ve been photographing Natalia since before she was born. I absolutely love watching children grow and I’m so lucky to call this my job. Here are a few of my favorites from our milestone session. You can find more information about booking a session like this via the Investments tab.
Recently I came across this article featuring a photographer by the name of Ulric Collette. She put together AMAZING “Genetic Portraits of Mothers and Daughters.” You can see her genetic portrait series here. Having three daughters, a mother, and a sister – my mind began to think of ways I could do something similar. I triedContinue Reading
