Mak had a small part in the play at school this evening. What a talented group of children. She is in elementary so I knew she wouldn’t be on stage much….so I decided just to do a quick shoot before tonight’s performance. Dave helped me design the dress…..and we put it together and to be quite honest, I’m kind of proud of it.
After we were done little Lulu wanted her photo taken….and of course I obliged. I just love these little girls soooo much.
This is the second time I have had the pleasure of photographing this family. Quite honestly, it was effortless for me to capture this family the first time and even more so this time.
I love capturing moments between people that adore one another. And that’s exactly what happened last week with this family – they cherish one another so it’s pretty easy to capture the moments between them.
this is my favorite from the entire session. Why? Because to me it says this affection we have for one another is authentic…..real.
I do so love this image. Same reason…..from my view this is authentic and lovely.
The other day while driving Livy somewhere, out of the blue she said this to me: ”Mama, do you know how Sara has those beautiful, little dots on her face?”
“Yes,” I said, “they are called freckles.”
“Well mama,” Livy said, “I think they are so beautiful. I really love those dots on Sara’s face.”
Bella, I love your dots too. A lot. I just wanted you to know how us Nahorniaks feel.
Have you ever just been in the mood to be crabby? For no reason? A girl sometimes just wants to be crabby, right? That was me yesterday. I have nothing to be cranky about. I am blessed beyond measure. However, for some reason I just wanted to be a crank.
Now when I get crabby, I don’t yell and scream. I don’t pout either. I just get really quiet. Introspective one might say. I don’t have much to say when I’m feeling down. Often times I’ll read a lot or listen to music but mostly I just get quiet.
After 15 years together, Dave knows when I’m crabby. He’ll ask “honey is there something bothering you?” And I’ll answer, “no”. Yesterday I was telling the truth – really I was – there wasn’t anything bothering me yesterday. The good man that he is, however, knows something is off.
So yesterday, that good man (the one who loves me more than I deserve) packed the girls up in the car and took a drive. They drove for about an hour to Whole Foods. Do you know what they did there? They went to the salad bar and put together a wonderful salad for me. Because they all know that I love Whole Foods. Then they bought a bouquet of my favorite flowers – tulips. And then Dave called me and said, “can we drop lunch off for you?”
And that’s exactly what they did. The girls jumped out of the truck…..with a bouquet of flowers and a big beautiful salad with all of my favorite vegetables (asparagus, mushrooms, peppers and on and on it went), hugged me, told me they loved me and then Papa came over gave me a hug, told me he loved me and they all left.
Now how in the world can a girl stay crabby with all of that love? How I ask you? It isn’t possible. I just couldn’t stay crabby. Can you blame me?
