The last few days here in Colorado have been wonderfully rainy and cloudy. It has been a nice change. Yesterday we all went outside for a little bit to take Arden's 11 month picture and ended up spending some time digging up worms. Turns out River loves playing with worms. It was a fun little moment.
We are in full blown Christmas spirit over here and like most posts, I am incredibly behind. I almost convinced myself not to post these but how could I not? These are from a sweet little moment in time two falls ago when River wasn't quite walking yet. She had a few cute little chicklet teeth and was incredibly fascinated with all things nature (she still is). It was also right before she stopped breast feeding and Nathan happened to capture what was probably one of the last few moments of her and I together in that way. So even though we are sitting here wishing for some snow, I had to share this special moment when the leaves were bright yellow and there was a warm crispness in the air :) Happy Wednesday friends.
The Bates are one of the awesome families that I have had the opportunity to shoot for several years now. It is probably my favorite thing about photography, the relationships. I get to watch this family grow every year and I get to be a part of documenting their love for each other and the journey of their life. It truly is a joy and an honor. I hope I get to photograph them every year for decades to come.
