My daughter O is a beautiful girl, with beautiful hair and big beautiful eyes. She is the perfect model for a momtographer, if you can get her interested fully in posing for you that is. Maybe it's the age, I am not sure - but my little pumpkin always seems so excited about going to take pictures while we are in the house getting ready - but once we get to the location I loose her interest quick. Sunday, when we took these photos - she lost interest just as soon as we got to the back of our property. It was a windy day, and the 4 inch tall grass was apparently bothering her when he blew around and touched her skin - making her wiggle & itch. For the less then 5 minutes we were down there - we did get some great little shots. I hope you'll enjoy!
I remember sitting in my closet after they had left, crying-smelling my clothes that had been next to his during his visit, they smelled of Old Spice, a scent I cannot smell to this day without getting teary eyed.
As I think of ways to travel to IL in a pinch, with not a ton of money or time off work - it reminds me of all the old photographs I have of them. This weekend, I am going to go through them all & pull them all out - look at them, remember-cry & plan a trip to see my dear sweet grandmother - as she is the last one standing between the two of that amazing couple.
