Spring Photos

A good friend of mine had been wanting to do a photo shoot with Mirabel, and she invited us to meet up with her in a random field here in the hill country a few weeks ago.  Couldn't have been better timing, right before Mirabel's birthday (she turned 2 this past Monday) and Mother's Day.  

We had so much fun, plus I love how they all turned out.  Here are just a few.  I'm so thankful for these shots; usually when we do family photos, Mirabel isn't very happy when it comes to taking pics with me (it seems most photographers try to capture daddy and daughter first--which is great, but I want some pics with her too!!).  So this was lovely.  I think she captured the sincerity very well.  Those wildflowers are so beautiful, too.  Can't say Texas ain't pretty :).  

By the way, can you believe she found that dead butterfly on the ground right next to where we were about to start shooting?  Kind of bittersweet, but it shows that all beautiful things serve their purpose, even after their souls leave Earth.  Cheesy, I know :P.  

I've been wanting to write a post about Mirabel's birthday, but I'm waiting until this Saturday's bday party comes to a close--I've still got plenty more pictures to take :).

Those are beautiful photos! The field is beautiful and if you hadn't of said that the butterfly was dead, I wouldn't have known.

Hey, by the way, I've been meaning to mention to you about the "Curly Girl Handbook." I have naturally curly hair that I have straightened for years because it was easier to do that than deal with the curl. I finally got a hold of this book (at my library) and I get compliments ALL THE TIME now on my hair, which is crazy because I've wished it straight for years. Anyhow, since Mirabel is a curly girl, I thought you might want to check it out. They have a special section for caring for curly children's hair. Curls are fun, but they are trouble too.

Amanda: Thank you for that recommendation! I feel so bad for her because she screams every time I have to wash her hair. I'm actually a curly girl too, but I straighten it a lot. My husband has very curly hair, so Mirabel's hair is curlier than both of ours! I will check out that book. Thanks again.
Jenny: Thank you :).
Tracy: Good to "see you" :). Thanks for stopping by!
