"They grow so fast."
All moms are told this. As we sleepily shop with a newborn who kept us up all night, or while we walk through a store or restaurant with a tantruming toddler who was told that horrible word, "No." Sweet little old ladies, who are now grandma's or great grandmas, try to remind us. But in our sleep deprived state or while trying to calm a toddler it seems like there's no way it's true.
Oh, but it is true.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that last weekend we went to Orlando for my youngest's birthday. Her wish was a trip to the American Girl store, so we went. We did a few other things as well (which I will do a blog about Non-theme park fun in Orlando next Wednesday), but we stayed at our fave hotel Embassy Suites. (Suites where the kiddos can sleep on the pullout, Manager's Reception every night and made to order omelettes in the morning, can't beat it)
Three years ago, we went out to San Diego to visit my family. We stopped on the way in San Antonio (LOVE that city) and of course, stayed at an Embassy Suites. This room had AMAZING light. Seriously, I made my girls do a mini session in the living room and bedroom there because of the light. These turned out to be some of my favorite images of my girls ever. So, of course, when I saw that the bedroom in Orlando had amazing light...we did it again.
So, enjoy the "Then and Now" and how fast those three years have gone. In fact, the almost 8 years of this little girl's (who desperately wants to be a teenager, ugh) life.
Happy Friday! And Happy (almost) Birthday Kylie Jane.
P.S. If I ever buy a studio I'm getting a bed and light like these rooms. So I can capture images like these for clients. But, if your home has amazing light and you're interested in a Lifestyle Session to capture similar images of your little ones Check out all the info here!
