Singing. Jumping. Twirling.

Repeat. All day. Everyday.

I took this photo series in December. Last week she got a new short little bob haircut. She’d been asking for a few months for short hair. I delayed, waiting to see if she would change her mind. She stayed the course. As the stylist cut and hair fell to the ground, my girl just giggled. She giggled the whole way through the haircut. With a big, sweet grin she said, “I told you it would look beautiful.” And it does. It fits her, just like her wild spinning hair.

Same day. Iphone shots. In the first photo, the girls were painting each other and trying to determine eye color.

  • Jenny B. - Adorable! I think it looks a little like Lesley’s haircut, which I LOVE! 🙂

  • Debbie - I love her new haircut. She looks adorable.

  • Dawn Ritchie - My oldest daughter (she turned 5 in November) likes to look over my shoulder when I read your blog and loves your daughters.

    She said to tell Firecracker that “she loves her and wants to marry her when they grow up.” She digs the new haircut. 🙂

  • Lakmali - She is adorable!!!!!!!!! what a cutie!!!!! <3

  • Cathy - It looks great! short hair spins and flies just as well as long…maybe even more because its like its weightless 🙂 I LOVE the spinning jumping shots!! I have a feeling my daughter will be just like that, Although I am too afraid to let her jump on the bed like that…shes only two and gets a little crazy, when she is older though, she will LOVE it!!!

  • Allison - I love the short hair – so CUTE. But I love her confidence even more!

  • suzy - What a cutie and so full of life! You are right, and so is she! That haircut fits her perfectly! Very Spunky!

  • Bek Ryder - she’s so beautiful. Love her hair cut, tho i can imagine why you’d be hesitant to let her cut it! It does look super cute tho!

  • christina - This girl makes me smile 🙂 Such a beautiful soul!

  • Jelena - Great photos, but I have a question about your settings- was the first one really f2.8? It’s just that with f2.8 at my 50mm Nikon lens it would make way more blurry foreground/background so I was curious.

  • Diana - She sure is something special.

  • AshleyAnn - Jelena – Yes, I just double checked to be sure. If were closer to her, more would be blurry.

  • sherri - A couple of precious girls you have there!

  • Juli - Oh. my. word. That haircut…she’s adorable! She AND her new haircut are, indeed, beautiful.

  • Juli - Ashley, would you pretty please share where the “Very fine house” pillow is from? I have Googled & searched Etsy to no avail. I love that song. I saw them in concert w/ my hubby when we were dating 20+ yrs ago! Please share. I love it!

  • AshleyAnn - Juli – it is from http://www.passivejuicemotel.com/

  • Jelena - Thanks Ashley! I am à newbie with manual settings… I might just have to take your online course!

  • Juli - Yippee! Thank you so much! Now I know how I’m going to spend my birthday money. 😉
