that's what life is made of. i read this, this morning, "you are as close to God as you choose to be", and this, "draw close to God and God will draw close to you." james 4:8. and then this, "when you understand that life is a test, you realize that nothing is insignificant in your life. even the smallest incident has significance for your character development. every day is an important day, and every second is a growth opportunity to deepen your character, to demonstrate love, or to depend on God". c.s. lewis said, "there are two kinds of people; those who say to God, 'thy will be done' and those to whom God says, 'all right then, have it your way'." (all quotes from the book, purpose driven life) i love that every morning is new and holds the potential for a fresh start. a new way of living. making good choices, or at least learning from bad choices. that's where my head is today.
newborn babies. i love the way they smell. i love how peaceful they are. i love the way their little bodies are perfect. i just adore newborns. i am definitely a baby person. so i guess it's natural that i would love to photograph them. i really do enjoy photographing pretty much every age...but there is something about newborns...
he was so sweet and content. i fell in love again...which i tend to do often when i photograph little ones : )
his big sister is such a character. she is so bright, it's almost scary. she talks like a little adult and is mature beyond her mere almost 2 years.
i think i bored her.
this last one is a favorite from the night. such a great family. i did briley's one year photos and knew that they were special people. i love the connection i have with people i photograph. i really, really do.
so, today is a new day and i'm hoping to making good choices in regard to how i spend my time. finding that balance that i'm always writing about.
God bless your day!
