If you’ve been following my blog since I started you’ll recognize this darling little girl. I’ve been photographing her since she was 2 months old.
If you’re new – well then – sit back and ‘ooohh’ and ‘awww’ over her huge eyes and long lashes and perfect little smile.
We started this session our with a visit to her aunt’s house to see the horses. Something that Sarah loves to do.
I wish I knew what was going through the horses’ mind at this moment – probably something like ‘where’s my piece?’
This sky doesn’t really show just how crazy the weather was. We postponed a morning session until the afternoon, hoping the wind would die down. It had rained horribly the night before. Paul and Tamra (and most people that direction) had lost electricity. By the time we met up, there were still wind gusts near 40 mph. Sarah didn’t seem to mind much. I think the cold and wind bothered us more than it did her.
From the horses we went to Tamra’s parents house. I think it’s safe to call it a farm. It’s an amazing bit of land with barns and cats and pumpkins and dirt. Things that make growing up so much fun. And I have to say it – taking pictures somewhere familiar, somewhere meaningful, will make the photos SO much MORE special. Serious.
We had to feed the goats. I LOVE the way Sarah’s tilted her head in this first one. (Between Sarah and the goats I can not look at this photo without tilting my head!)
For a VERY brief moment the clouds parted and a sliver of sunlight fell onto us.
Paul and Tamra – Once again thank you. It’s been amazing to watch Sarah grow. I know she’s going to change so much more by the time I see you guys again next summer. I can’t wait to see her as an (almost) three year old, and to meet your newest addition.
