She's still 5

Most days I feel like I'm running at full speed just to keep up with my "list."  I know there will always be something else to do, so I end up doing only what is absolutely necessary each day.  That means the big projects often get pushed aside.  Skylar's 5 year pictures were no different.  We have a tradition of doing portraits at 5 years old (in a white dress) in our family.  Someday I would love to display my moms, mine, and all 3 of my girls, in one frame.  Reagan's portraits were a little pricey so we've been holding off on doing Skylar's pictures.  But her bottom tooth started getting wiggly....and I really wanted to have them done before she lost her baby teeth.  Thankfully, I've been able to pick up photography as a little hobby and when we were asked if Skylar could be part of a magazine shoot in San Diego, I jumped at the chance to take some pictures of her myself.  I'm still saving up for that DSLR, but I was thrilled with what we got.  She may be five and a half, but it was worth the wait.

It doesn't hurt that she's so beautiful and totally photogenic. :)

Now to pick a favorite.....


  1. Oh, they are all so beautiful! I would have to say, my favorites are 1 (first), then 2, and 3!
    Great job!

  2. She is just gorgeous and you did a fantastic job!

  3. Those turned out great!!! I'm saving up for a DSLR too ~ it's all Jennifer M.'s fault. ;)
    I love your white dress tradition. These pictures make me want to do a photo shoot. We haven't done that in a long time!

  4. She is SO beautiful!! Love the pics - my favorites are #1 and #4. Now, what is this magazine shoot opportunity this little model has??? Can't wait to hear more!

  5. Man, she is photogenic! Those are great pics!
