This wonderful, loving, adorable family has been trying to schedule their session for a while now. Monday was our first attempt, but the rain and the complete lack of light made us look for alternate dates. The problem? We are doing this session for their Valentine’s Day cards…so time was of the essence.
We met for our Urban session after a flurry of emails that finally ended in “it’s sunny, and it’s cold, but let’s give it a try”. And let me tell you, it was *COLD*. So we did our best to cuddle together for warmth (which, incidentally, makes for great pictures) and soldiered through in the face of 40 degree temps with a wind chill that surely rivaled that of Alaska. Laughter and tickle games worked their magic, and the kids were absolute angels (or cupids?) for us!
This post is a day late because I came home to BIG! NEWS! Our 5 year old, Sam, lost her first tooth! This was cause for celebration, while I silently mourned a teeny baby tooth that I remember poking through about 4.5 years ago. I’m happy to report that the Tooth Fairy worked her magic last night, and one shiny gold dollar coin was found under her pillow this morning (as was reported at about 4 am).
