Just the Two of Us

I try to take each child out for a special day or time alone with me each month.  Sometimes they get more than one day and that is just an extra blessing.

Well, Sunday I was able to take our 11 yr old daughter out with me for our birthday girl’s photo session.  She wanted to help hold the reflector and keep our birthday girl smiling.  She did a great job doing both!  I had no intentions of getting our photo together, but the lighting was just as gorgeous as the location and just went for it! {it was purely by accident that we matched}   I made sure the settings were all right, then handed her my very heavy camera, had her hold it very close to her body and lock her elbows in tight for stability and then showed her where to aim. 






It was a gorgeous day but really windy and here is the proof!  HA HA HA!!!!



I’m very thankful for her new found interest in being my helper with photo sessions. I enjoyed bringing her along!

Then it was time to head home and play in the leaves….a must on every birthday photo session with her!

My sweet husband offered to throw leaves so we could just have them fall on us…that was an epic fail because he kept going in front of us.  LOL!


Although we did manage to get this one without him in it!  Open-mouthed smile


Then it was time to take matters into our own hands and throw caution to the wind – LITERALLY!  LOL!




OK, last time…are you ready?


One, two, three….



What a fun photo session and sweet time together with two of our beautiful girls!


Wishing you all a blessed and beautiful day!   More of this sweet girl and leave throwing to come!!!!
