double heart.

today I ran through a field with a girl named Chloe.

we roared our terrible roars.
we rolled through itchy grass.

we played peek-a-boo,
and made magic.

and I was reminded,
yet AGAIN,
why I double heart my job.

I double heart you, Natalie. You help me want to become a better photographer and continue to find the joy in this job. Thank you!

Oh, and Chloe is too cute for words.

That little girl is too cute.

I totally agree with Lainey, you are amazing! And I thought you might find this cute, my 5 year old (who has autism) just came in here and said "how about pics and kicks?", so of course we had to check it out!

i ♥♥ you. you rock! and are so inspirational.

don't you love it when you remember why you love something/someone?

it just gives you that extra little boost that you need to let go and ENJOY the process...

Natalie, you are an utter joy. Thanks so much:-)

Natalie, I bet you are just the BEST photographer for kids. You can just tell that you enjoy working with them. :) Wish we were closer! My kids haven't had their pictures done in FOREVER. I know someday I'll look back and be sad about it, but it's just so hard to get them all together (and HAPPY) as well as willing.

What an adorable picture of an equally adorable little girl! She must have had the best time with you! I wish we lived closer so I could have you capture my little, and not so little, ones.

Natalie, thank you again for your beautiful blog. I came across this site today http://namesinthesand.blogspot.com/
and thought you might be interested in this lady's story if you haven't already seen it. If you go to the "Our Mission" tab you can read her story and also watch a video of her talking about her experience. I pray for you every day! That you'll be wrapped in the arms of His love.
