So many of my sweet families are near & dear to my heart. I have known them for years, literally watched these kiddos grow up. Its so CRAZY and amazing to be allowed into their lives. I feel pretty darn special 🙂
These two for sure fall into that line. They were sooo little when they first came around MJP, now they are adorable big kids! Their sweet mama called me and said she wanted me to show up right after school, she wanted to remember just how they look after they get off the bus. Straggly hair and dirty jeans. I instantly smiled and couldn’t wait. What a PERFECT way to remember your babies. That look that you see everyday. That look that one day you will miss. That look that brings a smile to your face as you see them climb off the bus or hanging out in car rider line. As a mom to teenagers…. I totally miss that.
This mama, gets it. She gets that a perfect outfit, a perfect hair bow isn’t what its always about. I LOVE HER FOR THAT.
I hope this will encourage other moms out there to rethink what the perfect portrait is.
A beautiful afternoon, sun bright, dirty jeans and straggly hair.
