Lovely







My new addiction seems to be this camera, which I suppose isn't a bad addiction compared to some of them out there. Sunday afternoon Miss Grace was in a compliant mood and we shot these in some good indoor light(or as good as it gets in the Winter here). I remember before we received Grace's referral and it was close to arriving that I was anxious. The anxious part of it for me was not raising another child, it was loving another child. I recall asking my mother, "How could I love another child as much as I loved my first...Nick?" I loved Nick with all my heart. Now I realize what a silly thing that was to be anxious about. Love isn't finite....it grows and grows. Everyday I love this little girl more and more. And she is so easy to love.

Grace is such a beautiful girl and looks much older than she is. You are going to have boys knocking your door down in a few years!! That I do not envy! ;o)

How could you not be addicted to photography- just look at your models! Beautiful photos. And I just bet your hubby is more than nervous about her teenage years.

Hope you are having a great week.

Isn't that the most wonderful thing about love? It just grows and grows and it is indeed infinite!
I remember with our 2nd child wondering if I could ever could love as much as the 1st. I probably wondered that each time.
Then with our adoption, an entirely new pocket in my heart was filled that I never even knew existed. Beautiful!
Wonderful photos! I like the 1st and last ones best. :)

Super Mommy said...

You have such a lovely subject - I'd be taking pictures all the time too.

I also wondered about going from 1 to 2 and loving that second child as much as I did my first - and I do! It's wonderful, isn't it??

Missy said...

Beautiful pics of Miss Grace! I adore the catchlights in her eyes...sooo sweet! She is a stunning little angel for sure. Cameras are so addictive...what kind do you have?

OH MY #6 said...

I can see why you are becoming addicted to the camera, with such a precious model you must be mesmerized as you look through the lens.
