I have one young friend leaving at the beginning of April. She asked me and "S" to take pictures of her and her daughter in kimonos. "S" is a much more experienced photographer than I am. It was super fun to watch how she works a portrait shoot and especially how she handles a toddler. I don't think I want to do portrait photography, but I really did enjoy it. Although I felt inadequate and was sure nothing was going to turn out. I thought I'd show you some of my favorites. As you can tell, I prefer more candid shots. This little one looks just like her daddy.
This week I went to another Matane party for my two young friends that are leaving. It was a Karaoke party with toddlers! It was really fun and again, I took my camera. Oh yeah, there were Moms there too.
I can't even get enough of this cuteness!
Goodbyes are hard. I treasure these sweet friends. Thankfully, I will see some of them again because we will be moving from California to Texas when we return. Many are going to the same place. If you've followed me here long enough you'll realize that this means we will be selling our beautiful home and relocating. That is a hard one. But, no matter how we plan our days, they don't usually end up the way we think. God has much better plans than we can ever dream of. So we are trusting in His direction one step at a time.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to proper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
