they grew up

 they were best friends with my madison in kindergarten through 3rd grade.
we trick or treated, beach tripped & did sleep overs.
then we changed schools
& they had the nerve to grow up
they’re triplets
they are loved immensely by their mama,
who asked if i’d document their first homecoming 
what a treasure to see these girls growing into beautiful young ladies
& to think i knew them when they were sitting in car seats…

 one of my favorite captures ever!
i sure do love catching sunflare
even if i blew it out a little too much

i love capturing the moments 
that might not be “true posed photo ops”.
to me these are priceless captures of the simple moments of life
that are often times overlooked.

& i love those moments.

here are a few…

after a little convincing them to loosen up &  that i really wanted some fun shots
possibly to a parent’s dismay
they broke into various & sundry dances
thriller anyone?

to my friend~
thank you for giving me the pleasure of photographing your babies
it was a true honor for me.
i love those girls!
even if they did grow up & start dating boys.

 & friend, i’m thinking they love you 
as much as you love them.
job well done mama!
