In late December I was fortunate to get to visit briefly with my niece, her husband, and their two little boys. I wrote about those cute little smiles here and shared a few more images of them.
When family is far away and you can’t see them often, visits like this feed the soul. Yes, for a woman of this age it might be a challenge to keep up with them (thank goodness I was much younger when raising my two), but I always come away feeling lifted up. Maybe it’s because there is so much love among this young family that it is contagious.
My photo heart connection is all about those little dimples on that hand, and the frog being sat so that he can “see” the story Mommy is reading, too. It’s about foot pajamas and the smell of toddlers after a bath, and wondering if they will ever get to sleep that night in a strange place. (And, no, it took quite a while.)
Yup. Pull at my heart strings and don’t let go. I’m so grateful to be a photographer, to be able to catch little moments like these.
