As inspiration would have it, my youngest of two daughters turned 15 today - Monday, July 2nd. So what better Macro Monday topic than Casey! When she was born 15 years ago newborn photography wasn't where it's at today. I often find myself thinking about not capturing the details of both my daughters when I photograph a newborn now. They are details that change so quickly and I wish I had them.
I figured, I'd capture the details now at 15. Why not. We are always changing, maybe not as quickly, but changing none the less and I'm sure I will want a reminder of those little things like how her eyes can vary from gray to blue to green and somewhere in between depending on what she's wearing or her mood; her silly pucker faces, her slender fingers and her smile (which I hope to see forever).
Fifteen brings driver's permits, harder high school homework, boys, messy rooms and many more things to make a mom go crazy, but even more to make my heart swell with love and pride in the beautiful young woman she is becoming. I love you Casey!
