Every year I do a portrait session for each of my children on their birthdays. This year, for my girls... I was late, very late. They celebrated their birthdays over a month ago, but better late than never, right? It's s0 important to update their images each year, because they change SO much. I have last years' images up on the wall and I can see so much change in just one year. CRAZY!!! They are growing up so fast, I almost can't keep up. My youngest is no longer a baby... last year, she still had a bit of baby in her. It's gone. Completely! This year...she is a full blown kid. My oldest daughter is in her tween years. Can I just also say how much I love doing photo sessions with girls her age? I absolutely LOVE this age! Tween girls are in a funky age where they become hyper aware of how they look and a little self conscious. And there is middle school, and mean girls and the media, social media.... it's such a hard transitional time full of emotion. The thing I love most about sessions with this age group is that I get to show them how breathtakingly beautiful they are. just the way they are! Give me your tweens... I'll show them how unique and gorgeous they are! Boys enter this stage too, more than we might think. Next month, I get to show my son how absolutely handsome he is. Here are my girls...7 and 11...
Happy Birthday Girls (late)! I love you both to the moon and back!
