On a whim this morning, as I was taking pictures of the kids running around outside, I asked S.G. to take a few quick shots of me… my FB picture was a snowy one, and I’ve been so loving our Spring weather. She was a trooper, and wielded my big old camera with the heavy 70-200 lens on it, and got some really great shots of me. Then, out of the blue L.A. came barreling into the frame and wanted to take pictures with me. He’s been avoiding my camera since he was about 18 months old, so I’ll soak up any chance I get.
And I could not love these more. My first baby, who has no baby left in his face… he’s all boy, through and through…. and yet sometimes at night when I’m doing my last round of kid checks, I find myself standing over him in the dim light of the boys’ room and I swear I can still see glimpses of his tiny newborn face.
That bottom right one? S.G. has such a knack for the in between, and this is the second incredible shot she has taken of me with one of the little dudes. That one might just be tied for this one she took over the summer. So.incredibly.blessed.
