Photo Shoot

I finally got the pictures back from our day in Ickworth Gardens. It was so pretty there. We were fortunate enough to have a cool sunny day. There were 2 shots that instantly stood out. This picture in particular is so sweet and classic to me. It makes the dress I made for Brooke look flowly. I love the way her hair and dress are billowing in the wind as she looks over at the field. I just love it!!!

As much as I the first picture appealed to me this one here by far my favorite. I think it is my favorite picture Brooke has ever taken. She was so into those flowers. They were growing in a field as we entered the gardens. She stopped to pick a few (not sure she was supposed to do that) and would not part with them after that. As they wilted from being squeezed in her little hand she tried to revive them. After 2 days I finally convinced her to throw them out.
My little girl is growing up. I had not noticed how she had changed until I put these pictures into my photo screen saver. Her images as a new born, a baby and then a toddler moved across my laptop screen. The changes were subtle but it is official, she is growing up. *sigh*
Any who.... I can't wait for our next picture session in July with our friends the Raponi's. Brooke loves Mr. Tim and her new found friendship in Ms. Andi is sure to bring out great pictures that day. Brooke and I are already picking out fabrics for her next outfit. We have hair bows being made to go with it. It is going to be GREAT!!!
