It was a good day… warm and windy with lots of clouds in the sky. A good day for photos with little Miss S. Her mother is in the Navy and has been deployed for most of the year. Miss S wanted to send her mother a special photo book for Mother’s Day, so we headed out to capture her spirit and smile. She was ready to be photographed and even had her own ideas for poses, but when I brought out the balloons… her spirited soared and her smile beamed even more – if that could be possible. It had started to rain and the wind had picked up, but that didn’t stop her. She asked, “Do you want me to run up that hill with the balloons?” And so she did three times! She was so fun and so full of energy. I know her mother will cherish her Mother’s Day photo book forever…and I’ll remember how balloons can make a good day even better!
