Many of you have already seen this image......
What you do not know is that this was a completely spontaneous "shoot".
Telyn had her preschool pictures a couple of weeks ago, and she looked so adorable I wanted to snap a few for myself. She put her sloth down and sat on the porch when I had a light bulb moment. She loves sloth. I love that she loves sloth. Sloth even has his own language and cute way of speaking. I realized that I have no pictures of them together, something that I needed to capture.
She started off a little serious. Probably due to the fact that all of our cute neighbor children were out playing and she was longing to join them. But I love how she has her favorite stuffed friend sitting on her lap and cradled in her arms.
I love these ones. She's always snuggling sloth and making sure he's feeling very loved and cared for.
I love that I have these captured memories.
Parents.... don't ever be afraid to bring your childs prized friends along with them for their portraits. We need these memories preserved. And I'm pretty sure our children will love to look back on these images and remember some wonderful times in their childhood.
