And we’re off! ~{Miami Shores Child Photographer}~

What better way to kick-off my blog than to begin with what’s mine – meet my two daughters!  First, my 6-year old – who is awesome in all of the ways in which she is a contradiction: she is hilarious, yet tells the worst ever knock-knock jokes; she loves french fries and pizza, but also cauliflower and broccoli. She is my energetic, golden-hearted girl who, best of all, has her dad’s sweet spirit…

Don’t even ask me where she gets that pose! I said to her: “Show me what you’d do if you were feeling sassy.” And that’s what she did! Gah – I adore her!

Her hair – it kills me. I love how the sun catches in her curls and filters out all golden and glowy.

She likes to pose. Not sure you’d noticed…

Then there is my 2-year old. The one who can level you with just one look. The one who knows with complete certainty that her big sister hung the moon.  The one whose adorable face and tiny voice sit atop a spicy, fiery personality…No idea where she gets it. None. Couldn’t possibly be from her mama…Nope…No way…

The ringlets! Ohmahgah – the ringlets. Love.

Remember that “leveling look” I told you about? Here’s how it starts…

How sweet is this face? Add in the little pokey-outey toddler belly and mama is a goner. Who can resist baby tummies? Nobody, that’s who!

Remember when I said that Little Sis adores Big Sis? Well this funny outtake should drive the point home. I’d sent the girls off to play for a few minutes so that I could change lenses. When I turned back around, there was the little one playing “copycat” with the big one, who, you might recall, loves a good pose-off. I laughed and laughed while snapping this photo!

So there you have it – the little loves of my life! Aren’t they fabulous?! You can go ahead and hit the “Comment” button now and agree with me!

Stay tuned for the next blog post this weekend where you will meet two crazy-cute sisters and their ridiculously gorgeous mother. The woman will make you want to hit the gym! Not even kidding…
