In a world that teaches you to fit in, I pray you always stand out. In a society that is slowly letting your gender rise, I pray you soar. In a life where peers will judge you by everything outward, may you trust your heart. Know your worth is more than gold. That you are enough... go live every last one of your dreams sweet girl. I’ll always have your back.
Love, mom ❤️
All the cards seemed to align for this evening. They had an early day at school, I didn’t have any photo sessions, and it was somehow not raining—its has rained more than ever before here in Newport! Well, in all of Orange County and Southern California actually, but Newport is where it hurts, as I can’t be shooting family sessions in the rain! ;-) We did a very last minute run over to the beach for about 15 minutes tops before it got too dark and we had to head back to the car. But such a perfect 15 minutes it was to me. These guys are my whole world, the reason I became a photographer, the ones I used to get behind my lens daily. Lately though, it is becoming more and more rare. I don’t want to forget any of it though. Any of them. I want to look back at crisp clear memories. Of not just the way it “looked” that day, but rather how it felt. How my heart leapt being with them. Motherhood has been the greatest gift of my life. And these two are my whole world.
