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. :)
