Little Red & Her Wolf

My children *love* dressing up. Any day, all day, for any reason, so Halloween is naturally a fun-filled event at our house each year, and this year was certainly no exception! But it was a bitter-sweet year for mamma for sure, because this will most likely mark the last year that I’m able to have a big say in their costumes. Well, at least, *his* costumes. He’s six, you see, and six year olds would much rather be warewolfs than “big bad wolfs” (yes, that’s what he told his friends at school), so I’m pretty sure that this mamma’s Halloween, outfit coordinating, picture taking days might officially be over. Sniff, sniff. ;(

  1. Grandmom says: They are the cutest fairy tale characters ever! Unfortunately "little boys" grow up to be "big boys" with very definite ideas about what they want to be, however, the "big boys" are also lots of fun, just different ways. on 11.2.12 @ 2:14 pm

their Nai Nai

Grandmothers are special. They just are. Their kisses, hugs and certainly their treats are extra special. And everyone knows there is a soft spot in every grandmother’s heart for her grandchildren. Nothing delights either of mine more than some time to be spoiled by either of their grandmas. So when the C Family wanted to include their boys’ Nai Nai in their session, well, I just knew it would be special. She clearly adores those boys, and what a wonderful thing to document for them. I know they will look back at these photos in years to come and be reminded of just how much she loves them, and that certainly is a special thing.

graciousness

I left this session in awe of how wonderfully well-mannered these children were. It was a pleasure to be with them this beautiful evening late last fall. They were fun, polite, sincere, sweet and just all-around delightful. I had the suspicion that this graciousness they portrayed came from their beautiful mamma, but little did I know that I would be the direct recipient of her graciousness in the weeks to come.

You see, as I was dropping her holiday cards off at her home a few weeks after their session, my Texas-sized SUV almost ran smack into her home. Yup, you read that right! I’m still not exactly sure how it happened, but we certainly averted major disaster. The terror I felt as I turned around and saw the grill of my SUV barreling towards me, entirely too close for comfort, is still with me. I mean, really, if I had waited another 10 seconds to turn around, the car would have hit me first and then her front steps! Luckily, I was able to jump in the car and stomp on the brakes just in the nick of time. Literally inches away from the steps. It still gives me the goose bumps to think of what could have been.

But what was so amazing about the whole situation, again, was the grace and warmth she met me with when she opened the door to a fear-shaken photographer and tire treads on her front lawn. Just grace and a few friendly giggles. What an incredible legacy for these three children that is already shining through their sweet personalities. Happy Mothers Day, A — I hope you spend this weekend being celebrated for the great mamma that you are!
