One of the hardest things about living across the country from family is not being there to see my niece grow up. She turned three at the end of August. I was able to go back a few times this year and we did a couple sessions with her at my parents house, once in late July and once in September. These are my favorites.
This next one isn’t a blink. It wasn’t an accident. Maddie stood for a few seconds with her eyes closed, facing the sun. She seemed in those seconds so much older than her years. Soaking in the warmth from the setting summer sun.
I love you ‘baby maddie’
