I don’t know that I really have a favorite age. So far, I have truly enjoyed every age of child from newborn to post high school, although some are definitely more challenging than others (like my own 7 and 5 year old sons!) That being said, I think that five year old girls were made to be in front of the camera. I had a photo shoot this morning with this sweet little girl who I’ve watched grow from a baby into this beautiful, spunky, fun little lady.
She was such a fun little friend to hang with for a bit this morning. We talked and talked and talked about school, reading, movies, her brother and sister, gymnastics and so on and so on. Miss A definitely is not shy, which I already knew since her mom is a good friend of mine. But I don’t know that I’ve ever spent much one on one time with A, and she is a delight!
She stuck with me as we traipsed all over one of my favorite locations and didn’t even freak out when we saw not one but two of the most enormous spiders I have ever laid eyes on! I was ready to run for the hills, but she wanted to keep looking at them. I’m not even exaggerating when I say the body was the size of a half dollar and the leg span was at least as big as my palm!
But it didn’t really phase A. She just kept on being her beautiful self.
It was a great morning, even a little bit cooler than it has been! Thanks, Leslie, for trusting me to take her pictures!
