anna is three

Well, technically she's three and a half, but who's counting? [answer: me.  every blonde hair on her head, every night we kiss goodnight, every snuggle she gives, every day that she grows older]

Anna and I went out last week for a few pics.  I've been wanting to get some shots of her in this hat, because she loves to dress up in it and I think it's darling.  We only had a few minutes before the sun set, before she ran to the promised playground, before I ran out of memory on my card.  But I think we got some beauties.  She's a natural model, coming up with many of these poses on her own.

Love this girl.  How can you not?

and my very favorite [the quintessential anna pout]:

celebrating mom {i heart faces photo challenge}

I haven't entered a photo in an i {heart} faces photo challenge before, but have been following their blog for a long time.  When I read this week's theme, the following photo immediately came to mind.  It says everything to me about the beauty of motherhood.

This is my sister and her hours-old baby boy.

Hali {Senior}

My first official Senior shoot and I am hooked!  This was so much fun; I could have clicked away all day.  Thanks, Hali!  And congratulations on your graduation!
