The last few weekends I have had client sessions booked, so I have not had my camera pointed at the girls as often as I usually do.
But Sunday night, I was feeling rather inspired by this antique white bench and the empty lot in our neighborhood that has been taken over by weeds and wildflowers.
Everyone in our neighborhood complains about these empty lots and the fact that the builder has let the weeds completely take over.
Unfortunately, they creep on over into our nicely manicured lawns and we are in constant battle trying to keep our flowerbeds and gardens weed free!
I know our neighbors probably saw me out there and thought I had lost my mind, but I just knew it was going to make a beautiful back drop.....and the best part was that it was just outside our door!
The girls couldn't believe we were going back there and Sarah got excited when she saw all of the wild flowers surrounding us.
She thought we had just landed in the biggest flower patch around:)
If you can't tell, Sarah was totally in her element!!
She loves to be free and run around outside..... most of the time barefoot:)
I was really hoping for a fabulous "sisters" shot, but this was as close as I could get!
Reags is such a handful and at her age, she just wants to do her thing.
Taking direction from mom is not one of them.
My best shots of her are always the ones where the does not even realize I am clicking. I was not sure how I felt about this photo because she was blurry and the flowers were in focus........ I tried something a little different and the more I look at it, the more it is growing on me!
Well, I am sure glad I decided to venture out to the empty lot on Sunday night because yesterday when I pulled into the development, I saw that the builder had a crew come in to cut down the tall grass and weeds. I knew it was only a matter of time....
Sarah wanted me to tell everyone that she picked out her outfit all by herself!
We had a little Mommy Daughter one on one time last Friday night and we did some shopping at Target. The first thing she spotted was the pink hat, then she found the bracelet. She is an accessory girl....just like her Mama!! She also picked out her skirt and top. She was very proud and could not wait to wear it! I can see back to school shopping is going to be a fun adventure for the two of us.
Happy Friday Everyone!
This is my last day of work and then I am off until the 8th.
I am so excited to have some extra down time with the family.
Have a wonderful weekend.
