Sometimes it’s both:).

Because of the interminably long winter here in the Northeast and the fact that my family apparently needed to pick up every possible virus going around these past few months, I have gotten out of the habit of just picking up my camera and photographing those perfect little day to day moments all around me.  It’s time to get back in the habit.

My youngest daughter is holding on to her babyhood with a deathgrip (“I not a big girl, I a leetle tiny baby, Momma!”), but actions definitely speak louder than words and we are officially and fully immersed in both the pain and joy of toddlerhood.

Moods that change at the drop of a hat:

Burgeoning artistic interests:

A complete propensity for trouble:

And an uncanny knack for getting out of it by playing up the cuteness:

“Hey baby girl, what happened?”


I am so grateful for every single day I have with these amazing little people who help me to learn, grow, and see the world in new and exciting ways.  Sometimes the challenges of parenting can seem overwhelming, but moments like these warm my heart and remind me that it’s all worth it.

Have a wonderful day!

    Great post Jess- the light in your house is gorgeous or you are the master of your speedlight- either way these are so perfect and she is just so cute!!!

    Oh, thanks Leandra. It’s actually taken a whole year to find a couple of nice pockets in this home. Just goes to show that you can find decent light almost anywhere:).

  3. i agree, you are the master at finding beautiful light. next time you are in washington you need to come to my house and show me where my pockets are :)!! i love these moments that you capture, they are so priceless!!

    I just spent a few hours with seven of my grandchildren (and their parents–my children, of course) and my heart was nearly as full as it could be with the joy that comes from those little souls. Now, after seeing those precious photos of Julia, my heart is overflowing. How wonderful it is to be a grandmother! Thanks, Jessica, for capturing those little moments for those of us who are so very far away and missing out on so much!

    Awwww. I need to start bringing out the camera more, too. Hopefully once I start feeling better. And maybe they won’t run away. That would be nice. 😉
