Work it, Girl

A few days ago, Sophie and I walked Mike out to his car before he left for work for the evening. I noticed that the sun was shining beautifully on Sophie's hair, and I asked her if she minded if I took her picture. She agreed, and then I asked her if she wanted me to take lots of pictures of her. "You mean, like you do the girls when they're posing?" she asked. "Sure!" I replied. At this, she was happy, so off we went to a nearby park owned by a local nursery.

We had a fun time, although there were a few too many frogs in the pond for her liking. And she kept making me walk in front of her, so I could clear out any grasshoppers before she passed by.

Here are just a few of the pictures I took that day. I love you, Sophie!

At one point, Sophie told me to look up…when I did, there were hundreds of marquis butterflies! It was magical! This was the only one I could capture…

There was a gorgeous tree there, filled with these beautiful red berries…

And my favorite… 😉

A girl can dream, can't she? 😉

(It's just too bad I don't always dream in focus! Ah well, like one of my very favorite photographers, Karen Russell, says: "Photos don't have to be technically perfect, as long as they're emotionally perfect."  I like that.)

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. I agree with you about the FAVORITE one. She’s beautiful as are all your girls.
    I kept thinking I was seeing snow on her and it was just her jacket.
    I’m only a few sips in to my first cup of coffee….that might have something to do with it.

  2. My favorites are the first two of her! And I love the one where she is holding the little fuzzy thing in her hand…. I would be right along with her – wanting no frogs or grasshoppers around me – they freak me out! Oh, and since I’m afraid of butterflies, I would be screaming and running when I saw those!! Pretty, but at a long distance – LOL!
