"Mama, pleeeeease take my picture!""
I remember being 13. I remember being awkward and unsure. I remember feeling self conscience and sure that I didn't fit in anywhere.
Livy, now 13, seems to exude a confidence that I'm sure I didn't have at 13. Oh, if I could bottle all that confidence up and spoon feed it to her when need be. What a wonderful time in life with so many possibilities and the world unfolding at her fingertips.
So I accommodated her request, of course.
There is an open lot just a couple house down from our home. Complete with a dilapidated barn reminding us that not so long ago, this land of our neighborhood was not city life as we now know it. Couple it with sweet light at dusk and it's a place I had been wanting to take pictures.
A prop, like her baby sister always helps too.
So sweet that Tess just leaned up against that wall just like her big sister. It's a wonderful role model she has there. Keep following in those footsteps, Tess!
These two chairs were have just been sitting there in this field. Not sure why 'cause in the 11 years we have lived here, I've never even seen anyone in this open lot before. But I LOVE the color and how they blend in so seamlessly with the grasses.
Another day at dusk and another ordinary miracle to cherish.
