they grew up

 they were best friends with my madison in kindergarten through 3rd grade.
we trick or treated, beach tripped & did sleep overs.
then we changed schools
& they had the nerve to grow up

they're triplets
they are loved immensely by their mama,
who asked if i'd document their first homecoming 

what a treasure to see these girls growing into beautiful young ladies
& to think i knew them when they were sitting in car seats...





 one of my favorite captures ever!
i sure do love catching sunflare
even if i blew it out a little too much







i love capturing the moments 
that might not be "true posed photo ops".
to me these are priceless captures of the simple moments of life
that are often times overlooked.

& i love those moments.
here are a few...









after a little convincing them to loosen up &  that i really wanted some fun shots
possibly to a parent's dismay
they broke into various & sundry dances
thriller anyone?



to my friend~
thank you for giving me the pleasure of photographing your babies
it was a true honor for me.
i love those girls!
even if they did grow up & start dating boys.


 & friend, i'm thinking they love you 
as much as you love them.
job well done mama!

great job, Paige! Love the photo collage layout you did about halfway down of the girl and the flowers.

By the way, I got a pottery barn kids catalog today in the mail... (i know I don't have kids of my own, but I did buy stuff for my niece!) Anyways... they had some very cute owl stuff in it, which made me think of your last post! :o)
