looking for a model to test out a technique!

My girls let Mama play with my camera today. 
I am pretty excited for the ones I got.

The Julia
she hates her freckles but I absolutely adore them and pray that they never fade. I wanted to have a picture of them so I can show her just how beautiful they really are. 
With Belle it was all about textures and shadows. 

 For Stella I just wanted to so a more softer look and natural colors. I love bold and rainbows but sometimes it's fun to do the opposite of what you like just to play around with it.
I took some of Hazel and you will soon see on our Youtube channel that process and how it just wasn't going to work. I am really hoping I can get a model to try that technique out soon. message me if you have a newborn or are pregnant and would like to try something called a milk bath portrait. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!! but babies older than say 5 months is really not ideal for them. :( 
o well I will try something else on Hazel soon :)

6th letter to Belle

Dear Belle,
How did we get to this high of a number?
I can't wrap my head around the fact that you need 2 hands to count your age!
but enough about how sad I am about how fast time is going, you are tired of hearing it.
so I will just suck it up and talk about how proud of you I am!!

you rocked Kindergarten like it was easy!
You blew me away with how brave you were to leave my side and step out of your shell and do something big! not only did you excel in school you made lots of friends and earned a white belt in Karate AND was the loudest cheer leader in your squad!!
all my fears that first day of school you proved to me that I gave you all the tools you needed and your little wings were strong enough for me to let go.
just a little bit though.
 That big heart of yours is what I most proud of.
it truly is made of gold.
You constantly are willing to help with Hazel
you want to make sure Stella feels included
you actually listen to Julia when she want someone to talk to and you come to me if you feel like I am misunderstanding her during our many mom and preteen battles.
Daddy always feels loved and wanted because you leave him love notes all over his computer desk.
  Speaking of art.
it's still a fiery passion of yours.
I am inspired by the way you stretch yourself to try new subjects and techniques. 
I want you to know that no matter what you choose to do in life I will always support but I secretly pray that you use your talents to the fullest.
 it is such a gift you have.

 Everyday after school during our walks home you would always ask me when will you be able to ride the school bus.  because during your kindergarten year, you attended the school right down the street your wish was not made BUT starting 1st grade you will join Julia at her school and finally be able to ride the big yellow bus! I am so excited for you.

I am giving you permission to grow up.
only because the person you are growing into, I just want her to always be around!
 I love you
