Back before Christmas, I was privileged to be able to take family pictures for some sweet friends. It was their baby girl’s 1st birthday coming up, hence the cupcakes you will see. We meandered down to a local lake here called Otay Lakes (Holla, San Diego!). I brought a basket with some yellow balloons attached, one of my old vintage chairs, an old plaid blanket, and MY sweet baby girl. Since it’s not every day that you bring that combination of things to a nearby lake, I thought it would be amazing to catch a few shots of my girl as well. I am so thankful for her curiosity, her strength, precious humming in bed at 10pm, her love for Jesus, her desire to constantly try new things, and even her stubbornness. Yes, even that. With stubbornness there often comes great strength and common sense. I comfort myself (amongst the difficulties with this ambitious child) that these difficulties, if set on the right course, will make for an awesome person one day. At least that’s what I tell myself for now.
Enjoy and soak up some of that love! :)
The sweet girl who turned 1. She has a little of her Mama’s homemade cupcakes on her lips…no biggie. :)
