throwing flowers

I took a few photos for some friends. As I left, their youngest daughter handed me a big ziplock bag full of rose petals she plucked from her mom’s rose bushes. She wanted to send them home with me to her friend…my oldest daughter.

My girl could not wait to head outside to toss and dance in the petals….and I sure didn’t mind following her with my camera.

  • Rae - So beautiful! <3

  • suzy - SO very adorable! I love their faces as the petals are thrown in the air. Magical.

  • Lisa - So beautiful! Thank you for the daily reminder to enjoy the sheer beauty in simple things

  • Jenny B. - So sweet! Firecracker looks SO tall in that first photo! I’m sure the pose and the leggings are helping, but it’s amazing how fast they grow up. I think my youngest son and she are about the same age, and he’s getting noticeably taller these days too. 😉

  • Kim B. - Wonderful!! My favorite is the bottom right in the block of four square photos. That would be so beautiful framed. (of course, ALL of your photos of your children would be beautiful framed!!).

  • Natalie - So lovely! Just wondering how you were able to get both girls in focus with f/1.4? Did you focus on your oldest?

  • Kaitlyn - Love this. Everything from the mismatched socks to matching striped pants and striped shirt. Her and my girl would get along great!

  • Ann - Love how you capture memories! So beautiful!
