In June we celebrated the 2 year anniversary of our daughter's Adoption Day. So much has happened in the past 2 years, it's hard to believe that we went from being a family of 2, to 4 with the birth of our 2nd daughter this past November. I love these photos of our precious Annabelle. She is every bit two years old. Sweet and sassy, loving and defiant, sugar and spice. She is slightly a tom boy which is why I love these photos of her swirling around in her dress. As soon as she put it on she twirled around and said "I am a princess!" It flares out so perfectly I just had to get photos of it. It isn't often that she is a girly girl. She loves to ride her bike, kick her ball, climb on things, play with race cars and Thomas the Train. She hates having bows in her hair or wear it up in a pony and doesn't like any shirts that have belts or ties around the middle. But she loves on her little sister, loves tea party and wearing her princess dress, loves to give kisses, read books, tell stories, sing and dance. And when she sings lullabies to her little sister, it melts my heart. She already is a little mother hen to her baby sister and it's so cute. Not sure how long it will last but I will take it!
I have been on a hiatus with photography for a bit. Life with two little ones is all consuming, and that's ok with me right now. I look forward to taking more clients in the future when our youngest is a bit more out of the baby stage. I still love to drag out my camera once in while. When our daughter wants to twirl in her dress outside on a summer night, and when the lighting is just right, magic happens! Happy Adoption Day sweet Anna, can't imagine life without you!
