K’s Summer of 7

Oh, to be 7 again! K’s mom contacted me in July, after winning a session I’d donated to Nick’s Race for their raffle. When K’s mom called to book their session, she told me K had JUST had her 7th birthday. She also mentioned that K loves playing softball, going swimming, playing and being goofy. Immediately, my memories took me back to when my summers revolved around softball schedules, sleepovers, and making up dances to Debbie Gibson songs with my best friend, all the while believing that summer would never end. So naturally, I was beyond excited to spend some time with K and get to see the world through HER eyes. When I was a kid, I hoped against hope that summer would last forever, but standing on the other side as an adult, I knew that K’s summer of 7 would be gone in a flash. I was honored to get to capture a little piece of it for K and her mom so that years from now, they could look back and remember just how perfectly wonderful being 7 was!

K was as fun-loving as they come, and as we warmed up to each other, I got to see her multi-faceted personality. My favorite? Her full-on goofy side!

I also got to witness the incredible affection between mom and K — you could tell that these two adore each other. The bond between a mother and her children is quickly becoming one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Really, is there a love more pure?

I loved every moment of photographing this super-cool kiddo, and I even went home with a new recipe to try. As it turns out, K’s mom makes the BEST quesadillas, and K was right…adding mushrooms really takes them to the next level! 🙂

What a treat it was to get to spend a little time getting to know you two. Thanks for coming out and spending a little time with me on a hot July evening. May K always hold on to her exuberant self-assuredness and sense of wonder!
