I love all of it.

Let's face it. Life isn't always one cheery day to the next. And how boring would that be anyway. I like the cheery days, don't get me wrong. But to expect that just isn't, well, real. I am editing this weekend and catching up. I was going through images late last night and this little one just gripped me. I can't even remember what brought on these tears. I'm sure it was nothing, and I know it didn't last long because one minute later her older sister handed her a new shell from the beach, and she grinned from ear to ear and moved on. I love how kids just wear their emotions on their sleeves. I don't insist on the smiling image ( although I'm sure the parents would prefer it) I like it real. So, this might make you sad. It makes my heart kind of break for an instant.
Maybe that is what I love about it. It's real.


  1. Adorable Alexis! I love the 'real' pictures too...that's exactly who they are and it shows their personality. Can't wait to see all the pictures!!!

  2. Awwww, she's so sweet. Some of my favorite pictures of my babies are when they are crying, real tears and all.

  3. Thank you for capturing such a real moment of Alexis. As her mother it made me cry. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos. Thank you!!!!
