The Little Details

Sometimes you just have to appreciate the little things/details in life because you just blink for one second and suddenly 5, 10, and then 15 years have gone by.  That is something that I just love about photography!  You can capture a moment in time, the details, the smiles, the expressions, all of it.  You can never go back in time, but photos help us remember a little more clearly.  

My husband is so glad that I bought a DSLR camera because I have taken so many pictures of our daughter just growing up.  I wish I would have bought one sooner, but at least I have one now!

Also linking up with Touch Up Tuesdays at Paper Heart Camera.
I do most of my photo editing with Picnik, so I was pretty proud of myself for this edit. 

Touch Up Tuesday's at the Paper Mama

My daughter's black church shoes, I bought them early this fall about 1/2 to 1 size bigger so there would be room to grow, but they now almost fit her perfectly!  At the rate she's growing, I'll be happy if they make it through the winter (which in Wisconsin lasts until sometime in May).

Photography love...

This is a picture of my daughter's second birthday.  My mom bought the princess crowns for her and my little nieces and they loved them, and they are pretty kid friendly too.

I also just love how when kids are learning how to use utensils, they hold them in one hand and eat with the other, and they HAVE to hold it or they won't eat.  Believe me, I've tried.  Maybe it's just my kid, I don't know, but I think it's pretty funny!  Well Lucy, you might as well do it now while you're cute and can still get away with it.
