I also learned that being Mom and Photographer in one is not the easiest thing in the world when you're really trying to get a nice "sit-still" photo of a 2 year old. She is very into holding Mommy's hand which presents obvious problems for the photographer side of me, but the Mommy side of me still loves her little fingers dancing across my palm. Here are a few of my favorites from that day, as well as a few from our trip to a Sunflower field near Rock Hill, SC.
This Sunflower field was breathtaking. It also was insanely hot and humid and abuzz with swarms of bees. Not ideal conditions for a photo shoot but we snapped off a few shots before succumbing to our anxiety that Sarah Beth was going to be stung or pass out from heat exhaustion.
