Bippity Boppity Boutique

APR_5953I must confess, when I first saw the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, I thought what a ridiculous concept. An overpriced salon geared to children. but, oh how the times have changed.

My daughter was gifted a session to the Bbbidi Bobbidi Boutique for her 6th birthday and I must confess it was well worth every single penny that was spent. APR_5586

Upon entry, the boutique was a hustlin’ bustlin’ room like you would expect on a Disney Property. We were quickly whisked away by a Fairy Godmother and from that moment on, we were all in heaven. My shy little miss felt like a queen in her royal chair as her hair was done-up, makeup was applied, nails were sparkled, and she was sprinkeled in pixie dust. She bounced out of her chair ready for a ball.

APR_5573We chased her around the park, taking in all the sights and compliments from passer-byers, and I understood at that moment why people love Disney. They make it their goal for everyone to see the world through the eyes of a child and to realize that dreams do come true.APR_5882closeupInterested in taking your little girl to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?

Walker Family

newborn1st

It has been a great first year for the Walker family. This sweet little grumpy cat is such a little mini me to her mom. Wonderfully sweet, but puts up with no nonsense. DEC_2518DEC_2638DEC_2532DEC_2687DEC_2743DEC_2760DEC_2777DEC_2576

Selfie Saturday

My cousin needed some headshots, so I figured I should grab a picture of myself while I had the backdrop up. It felt completely bizarre to be on the other side of the camera. I had huge fake smiles and my cousin (not a photographer) was snapping away while I directed her where to stand, how aim the camera, and she yelled at me to not look so stupid.

I felt like giving up but then my kids came in and in true toddler form, they had me laughing in no time. Looking back at the images, I am so glad I decided to capture “just me”. I’m always behind the lens or buried under kids in images.

There was something that felt so uplifting to look at a picture of just me and see the face that everyone everyone else tells me is pretty. Looking in the mirror we see our wrinkles, bags under our eyes, and endless flaws, but in these pictures I see beauty and hear laughter. With kids and jobs the days are long, the nights never long enough and it was nice to have a moment captured to appreciate that beyond being a mother, a teacher, a wife, and a photographer, I am a woman.
