Never. Ever.

Their Thing

When your kid tries soccer and baseball and karate and basketball and it’s just not their thing.  Then they find it and they fall in love and work at it.  It’s a pretty darn cool thing to witness.

Little Dreamer

“Dream.  Believe in yourself.  Work hard.  Enjoy the process.  Love the art.  Dance with your heart.  Repeat.”

This shot is a good example to always be prepared.  Kennedy was so excited to win a trophy at her dance competition.  So excited that she wouldn’t let it go.  I saw her starting to get sleepy.  I manually set my settings to close what I thought they should be and was ready for her to close her eyes.  Right after I snapped this picture her tired little arms dropped the trophy.  I was a Girl Scout so I’m always prepared 😉
