Be still my heart

In case you haven't picked up on this, I love my kids and think they're the most beautiful children on the planet. And just in case you missed this too, I really like taking pictures of them. Part of my love/hate relationship with my camera is I feel like I'm always on the quest for the perfect picture. Not necessarily the perfect picture that shows how cute they are, but that really captures them in any given moment. I spend most of my photo editing sessions frustrated that the pictures didn't capture them. However, if I never take another good photo, I'll always be happy with these. :) And I wasn't even trying for great pictures. Rory's hair is messy, she's in play clothes. But they are completely her.





I just might plaster my walls with this one. :)

B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L!!!!!!! The second one is my favorite because you can see the reflection of the sky (I think!) in her eyes. Totally amazing!

I LOVE that last picture. It looks just so realistic - right down to her fingernails.
