Puffy Sleeves and My Girls | Central Ohio Children Photographer
Remember that age...what we call "tween" now? Trying to find your way...growing up physically, mentally, spiritually. Most of us guided by the encouragement of our parents, loved ones, mentors, friends...
I am a mother of 3 girls fully amerced in this age of "tween" and a medley of momma bear feelings have been swirling around, wanting to protect and encourage these sweet girls. I have had this overwhelming feeling, that it's time to focus on my own girls, taking the time to capture THEIR now.
In a moment of reflection, this is the season of my life I don't have a picture of myself that I LOVE. I totally have all of those precious pictures with friends, school portraits and moments with my family.
I remember one image in particular, I was about 10 attending a tea party at my friends childhood home. OH MY WORD!!!! My sweet momma took me out to a thrift store off of High St. and we found the MOST gorgeous purple bridesmaid dress with PUFFY SLEEVES (Anne of Green Gables...Little Women-YES!!). As you can see the picture above...I was in heaven.
Oh this sweet age, between the magical fantasy of childhood, the awkwardness of adolescence...and the reality (for me) that THEIR GROWING UP!!!
I NEED to recreate that feeling...those moments in my imagination...a portrait...of MY GIRLS!!!
These sweet babies of mine got on board --- ready passengers on their mommas dream wagon, recreacting a feeling, a moment. These past couple of months we have had a blast finding dresses and fairy wings, and mermaid tails---and now we are finally taking the time to play, to "dressup" and. the. outcome.
They peek in while I am editing, THEIR images - not one of my clients. And their faces and exclamations - that's me?! Oh sweet babies, this is how momma sees you!!! <3
My prayer and intention in this collection is for my girls to see themselves as I see them. Beautiful, confident, playful, and developing into tenacious young ladies. I feel this need to share this experience with other mommas, these precious years, the magic of childhood. Capturing this moment, a portrait of their sweet Princess.
If you are a momma that is experiencing this season, just as I am, I have a place for you and your daughter. Whether your daughter sees herself as a Fairy in a Magical Forest or a Sweet Princess, I want to invite you to capture this moment, to come play with me.
I look forward to meeting you and your princess!
Hugs & Love-
