B+W Wednesday

A Teddy Bear Tea at school on Friday and the final concert in the Family series of our city's symphony made for a full weekend.

I love this first shot. Lucas and Isabel are like brother and sister.
His mom is a good friend and colleague.
This is just minutes before we went in to the concert.

After the concert, we headed back over to the fountain at The Landing.
Within minutes, a random game of tag erupted.

There is so much I like about this picture. The joy on the kids' faces, the three different races of the kids, the fact that the girls are in both dressed in their Sunday best and -my favorite- that Isabel is actually airborne.

These next shots are rare... Isabel with a serious expression.

Thinking about her Tea Party.

Listening attentively to the teacher.

I have a picture of her right after we got home from China
that is almost a double of this.
As much as she has changed,
there is still glimpses of that little baby girl
that I can catch now and then.

Mother and Daughter

the long road

These photos are all amazing! I think my favorites though, are of your daughter and her beautiful serious expression.

These are great shots!! The last one is just divine. The look of joy on your face and the demurely peaceful expression on your sweetie is priceless.


Have a great week, girl!

Your daughter is absolutely breathtaking...I bet you hear that a lot! I love the picture of the kids chasing each other. A simple game of tag can bring hours of enjoyment. You captured the true happiness in kids and an airborne child...LOL!

Many Blessings,
