I have been eyeing this property for a long time.
I photographed it this winter and posted it on instagram as a future location that I wanted to try and I am just now getting around to it.
This is super close to our home and I drive by it multiple times a day. Each time I pass by, I inspect the light. I knew the light at sunset was going to be magic especially when paired with Reagan's favorite "big dress". That is what she calls this one. Unlike Sarah who is choosing shorts over dresses, this child is all about skirts and dresses.

From the moment she put it on, she was swishing back and forth and spinning herself silly.
Which is why you see more photos of the back of her head than her pretty little face:)

She is getting so tall and leaning out....I really noticed it in this series.
It is bittersweet watching these girls grow up in what feels like the blink of an eye.
Hard to believe that are we are about to celebrate 4 years since Reagan has been home from China!
Time sure flies when you are having fun :)

Speaking of growing up..... Nick got his learners permit at the end of January.
We just scheduled his driving test for the end of August. Fingers crossed we will have a new licensed driver in the house here very soon.

I need to do some new photos of Nick.... It has been a busy summer for him, but he promised I could steal him for an hour.
So you should be seeing him very soon!

She is so cute! Love the cute dress. We adopted our daughter from China in July 2010 at 9 months. How tall is Reagan?

It has been such a pleasure watching this little girl grow. The dress is certainly getting it's mileage! I remember how much Emily's daughter loved wearing it and being able to twirl in it! Where do you find the time to do all these amazing shoots and you work too! I can't seem to find much free time these days.

Oh my gosh these are awesome. She's such a darling girl and I can see why she would want to twirl around in that dress, it's very pretty.
