Spinning

These pictures of my cousin Aleece's beautiful girl sent my heart spinning as I edited them tonight. She is simply beautiful with the perfect mix of tomboy and girly girl. She loves sticks and running away from the camera and throwing rocks in the river, and ducks, and taking her hat off, and fruit snacks. I got my biggest workout yet, photographing her.





I have countless shots like the above. She was impressively fast!


PS. I'm up extra late tonight and I'm still not tired. I think I've saved up some energy because guess what? Magson is finally sleeping through the night! I haven't had a full night's rest in about two years between pregnancy and a baby. Happy Mother's Day to me!

  3. These are PRECIOUS! We had that dress for Sofie in the newborn size--it's what she wore in the hospital to have her picture made in!!

    And that's WONDERFUL about Magson! I'm green with envy but so happy for you! Don't stay up too late editing your amazing pictures!!

  4. Marie, For chasing around such a cute little girls, you really got some nice shots! Hooray for Magson sleeping through the night! I know how it feels to finally have a few hours to yourself, not wanting to go to bed because it will just make those hours slip away as you wake up to another day of motherhood! Happy late Mother's Day to ya.

  8. I love the third picture especially, but they are all great. You definitely captured her energy. And yeah, for you getting some energy back. Isn't a full night's sleep amazing? They don't come very often, but when they do, it's like Heaven!

  9. Those are beautiful, Marie! (Did you make that little hat for her?)

    I'm very jealous about Magson sleeping through the night. Aaron still wakes up most nights at least once. I don't always have to get up, but it's still a pain. I hope Magson keeps it up!!

  10. I am so happy that Magson is sleeping through the night! That is great! Halle has digressed. She was great the first 6 months of her life. But now she thinks she needs to come in bed with us in the middle of the night. The joy of kids!

  14. I'm so glad you're getting more sleep!! Isn't that so great? It's like an entirely new world. The photos are so beautiful--you have such a good heart and I think it shows in your photos, which makes them even more beautiful. And the hat! I hope you're selling those hats on etsy.com! Oh, and did I mention how much I LOVE the photos you took of your sisters?! Wish I had been there.
