the joy of LOVE (days 8 through 10)

Maggie is the focus of these prompts- I basically just chased her around her bedroom with the camera while she played :)

the joy of LOVE, day 8: gift from the heart

There are hundreds of these all around the house, made especially for me. (and I confirmed it with the artist: that is, in fact, her butt. ?? KIDS. heh)

the joy of LOVE, day 9: passions and hobbies

At almost-4-years-old, her passion? DRESS UP CLOTHES.

the joy of LOVE, day 10: space: where they are comfortable

Maggie has the kind of bedroom I would have KILLED FOR when I was a kid. It’s big and bright and has a comfy bed and a princess castle in the corner. What more could a girl want, really?

    OMG STOP IT. You’re going to make we want a girl. Says the mother of two little boys. Too precious.

    “Me”, I meant make “me” want to have a girl. Although “we” is sort of appropriate because my husband already does want one.

    These are perfect pictures to have of her, just being herself. :)

    You get so much lovely natural light in your house!

      It was fun :)

      Her room is amazing in the afternoon- four huge windows, facing west. And today… THE SUN WAS OUT, OMG!!!!! I opened the blinds and we were loving it!

    These pictures are precious. I have three little girlies myself so princesses hold a special place in my heart. Great shots.

  10. Great shots, and a beautiful subject! It’s awesome that you have so much natural light coming into her bedroom! Sounds like a great, bright place to play! (Although, I don’t relish the thought of summer bedtimes…)
