I have had a hard time looking at pictures from this Christmas, but I am finally ready to post this session with my girls. The week before Christmas was a rough one for my family to say the least. I was amazed by the genuine outpouring of support I received and I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. In the middle of Lola our beagle being hurt I had to remind myself to make a special Christmas memory for my girls. I was not in the mood for anything Christmas….I was so sad and worried for our Lola. She went to heaven the next morning and we will miss her forever. However, I knew my girls were counting on me and were watching my every move.
I had promised my girls a trip to the tree farm to have our own picnic in the trees with cookies and milk. They were so excited to have pictures like they had seen me take a few weeks before. I am now grateful that I took that time out and made the best out of that night. It was a beautiful night and it seems all that more special that I made it a magical one for them.
I edited these pictures for me. They are my girls through and through. I captured their personalities and flaws. I did not edit out the boo boo on Tallulah’s face. I want to remember every detail that I can one day. I want to remember that she fell down and got right back up again to go down that slide even though she was upset for a minute. I want to remember that she wanted me, her mama, to make it better and send her on her way.
