Mother & Daughter Pictures


It's September now and that means my first born, my forever baby, and my only daughter will be turning 10! 10!! How the heck did she get so old? I swear to you, in my mind she is still this sweet little curly haired girl who loves Barbie movies and playing dress up. Now, we are having conversations about cell phones, online safety, and boobs. Whereas I've enjoyed getting to see my baby turn into a little lady, it's also really hard for me to deal with the fact that I will no longer get to play dress up with her. 

For Heidi's 10th birthday, I wanted to do a mother-daughter photo shoot. I've had an idea of how I wanted the pics to turn out for years, thanks to Pinterest. But before I hire a professional to take our pics (and the fact that I want them taken on her actual birthday) I thought I'd have a test run with my hubs behind the camera. Since we have been lucky in the weather department lately, it was easy to use our yard for this practice run. 

I thought I'd share how the photos turned out since my hubs did pretty good -for him- and I absolutely love the dress I was wearing. I've been wanting a new lace dress for the Fall and knew this was the dress for me when I saw it. It's perfect for church, an event, or the holidays. It's comfortable and very feminine. And the color is just what I've been looking for! It's not always easy for me to have time to shop for myself, so anytime I can shop online is a plus in my book. I found my lace dress at  Dressfo.com, where there is a huge selection of dresses and all types of clothing for women. 

Have a wonderful September and enjoy the last 10 days of Summer, as I enjoy the last 12 days before my baby turns 10.
