I don’t need to make a big deal out of my birthday. Quiet is actually good. And I will say this year, I am content with stillness, quiet and calm. I am more comfortable in my skin now, accepting of my quirks that make me different and unique. My friends outlove me, my family outspoils me, my partner makes me better always, and my kids grow me. I am completely and utterly thankful.
I decided to purposefully take some new portraits this month. I love capturing people how they are, in everystage of life (I want to make sure I do that for myself as well!). My husband does an amazing job with these. And I wanted to add one special one this year — the last portrait below was taken by my eldest kiddo this week. He was allowed for the first time to take a photo of mama on my “good” camera. Thank you buddy!!
