I believe in laughter... I believe in warm summer nights... I believe in the miracle of life... I believe in running barefoot chasing lightnin bugs... I believe in toothless giggles, and messy hair... I believe childhood is magical... I believe life is beautiful... I believe you can never have too many pictures... I believe in capturing life... I believe pictures should tell stories... -YOUR STORY-

The story of her princess dress

It was a Christmas gift from her moomaw & grandpa Tootie…

we all thought she would love it …. but not so much at first.

It took her until now to actually see the magic in it.

Now she’ll bring it to me saying.. “I wanna wear princess dress”

She always has to have her magic wand with her when she’s wearing it…

the bottom is already starting to fray… and sometimes the strings unravel and get tangled in her toes.

She’ll run.. and twirl…. and sing “Bibbidi bobbidi boo” through the halls.

I love how she’ll light up whenever I put it on her…. like that dress is just the best thing ever.

And for a little while……… she’s the prettiest red headed princess in all the land.

And I watch her twirl…


and sing… “bibbidi bobbidi boo”

Until… she’s had enough.. and her imagination takes her elsewhere.

This is the story…. of a little red head… and her princess dress.

Ever see a photographer who starts out with a 365 day project, or even a 52 week project and never finishes? Yeah, me too. Well, I recently joined a group of a few other busy photographers who decided to commit to a 12 month project! If we fail this, we’ll be taking donations for a time management seminar. The best part is that it will be totally candid, lifestyle shots of each of our own families/lives. We don’t even have to dredge up random people or make our kids pose for us. We’re calling the series “The Story of ________” and we’ll each be filling in our own blanks. At the end of this post is a link to another photographer who participated and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. Click through and enjoy!

Please head on over to Kate Craft’s blog, to see her story this month.
