Whenever I want to take photos “just because” or test lighting or check a new lens, all I need to do is look 3 feet around me (since she’s usually attached at my hip) and ask Emily if she’ll help. Yesterday after an early morning football game, we went home and she changed into this cute little outfit I bought her last week (boots were a birthday gift from Grandma). We went out together and were lucky to capture so many beautiful images not even 5 minutes from our house. Emily was a great, willing subject (and I of course saved the swirly rainbow pop for the very end just in case) and I’m even happier we spent the afternoon together and took these because this morning, her 7th tooth fell out!
I find it very odd that the leaves have not started dropping here yet. Many of the trees around me haven’t even changed color! It seems kind of late in the season but I suspect they’ll change any day now. We did find a big pile in the field and Emily couldn’t resist chucking a whole bunch at my head. =P
