Amber & Kaitlin; and all things Whimsy...

This week i had the pleasure of shooting two girls that i work with.  I admit, at first i found it might be a touch "creepy" to be asking two people i hardly know if i can take them out into the woods to take pictures of them...hah.  But, lucky for me, they were more than happy to and became my willing models for the day.  Amber is going to be a junior in high school this year, and Kaitlin is off to college! It was interesting spending the day with two girls so young.  Made me think back to when i was that age, carefree, and everything that happened seemed like a Possibility.  I had forgotten that feeling...glad i was reminded. 

Happiness is a direction, not a place.

Lindsey (with Roz in tow)

I've known Lindsey since sixth grade so when she asked me to do her Maternity pictures i was more than happy.  It's so funny how people grow up..hah.  It's been a pleasure seeing one of my childhood friends grow up, get married, and now on to job i know she's going to be amazing at.  I'm so very proud of the woman Lindsey has become...and i know little Rozalynn will feel the same way.  We are waiting to welcome you into the world Roz! But for are some pictures. 

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.
