I am so lucky to have several subjects to photograph whenever I want.
Hah! Yeah right!
When I tell my children I want to photograph them, I get grumbling and moaning. “Mom, do I have to?” Is always the first response. However, as my daughter gets a little older, she has started to enjoy this special time with me. What girls doesn’t want to be dolled up and photographed? This has become special bonding time between the two of us.
Today we sat in my room while I applied her make-up. Teaching her little tips and tricks. Then we went in and curled her hair since she hasn’t quite mastered this yet. It also gives me practice on someone other than my own super fine hair. Boy does this girl have some gorgeous THICK hair!
Our children grow up so fast. Right before our eyes they go from a tiny little 3 year old vying for our attention, to a fully grown teenager with dreams, friends, and attitude. (Don’t get me wrong, she had attitude at 3 too!)
I was so blessed to be able to be a stay at home mom for so many years, even though I wished at the time that I had a career. I am definitely not the Sally Homemaker type. I need something to do with my time other than cooking and cleaning.
However my children and I had the opportunity that so few do now, to make so many memories throughout the years. I had entire Summers off to take the to the pool, go hiking, take day trips around town and around the states we lived in.
My oldest will graduate High School in 2 years. My daughter the next, and my youngest only 2 more years after that. Just thinking about it makes me tear up. I wonder, what on earth am I going to do with myself when they all move out. I will be that mom at Graduation, bawling her eyes out!
But I still have a few more years. I plan to cherish them and spend as much time as I can find in our busy schedules, with my children. Arizona has so much to offer and so many places to explore. I can’t wait to get out there with them!
