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!
