I'm going there someday

I have wanted to do this shot for several months but the weather has been too hot for me to want to venture out. On Monday, the perfect opportunity arose when Avery's preschool was cancelled that morning. I quickly got her dressed up and by 9:30 we were out the door.

I knew I had waited too long to get her ready and that the lighting wouldn't be ideal, but I didn't want to turn back now. And sometimes with photography, you just get lucky. And that's what happened. I snapped about 20 shots while Mia screamed behind me because she wanted to be in the picture too. There were hardly any spots in the shade with a proper angle of the temple. I hoped that maybe one would turn out...and viola! a perfect pose by my little model.

I'm in LOVE with this picture!!!!!! I can't wait to do this with Carter when he turns 8 this summer. These pictures will be on canvases in each of their rooms. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
