I am still in disbelief as I write this, but our sweet daughter turned 5 yesterday! Part of me loves how mature and independent our Sydnie has grown over these few years, but a big part of me also doesn’t want her to grow up so fast! Where did my babbling baby go?
A few months ago, I wanted to do a garden themed portrait session for my daughter, so when I found out that it was peak bloom season for irises, I knew I had to act fast! Of course I still had the challenge of finding the right outfit at the last minute, but luckily I stumbled upon everything I needed in one shopping trip! J.Crew happened to carry this gorgeous watercolor flowered dress and navy sunhat that I knew would photograph beautifully amongst the iris flowers, and the best part was it was on clearance! Double win for mom!
This year has been full of big changes for our family, and though it hasn’t been easy on our little girl, she has embraced the transition with such a cheerful and thankful heart! Sydnie, we love your sweet demeanor, your inquisitive nature, and your sensitive soul. We thank God everyday for the precious gift of parenthood and can’t wait to see all the adventures He still has in store for you in the near future! We love you sweetie and wish you a very happy 5th birthday!
