Happy Valentine's Day!

I began studying photography because I wanted to be able to take awesome pictures of my kids. That was my one and only motivation. I have been blessed that a business developed from that initial desire, but sometimes it is good to remember that my daughter, Lily, remains my main subject. We took some time this week to take some fun Valentine's photos of Lily and her darling friend, Owen. I secretly (or not so secretly) hope that Lily and Owen get married someday because he is just the cutest, sweetest, most intelligent little boy. Plus, Lily is already in love with him and talks about him all the time, so I'm really just supporting her in what she already wants, right? Right. While wrangling a one year old and a two year old at the same time wasn't easy, we had so much fun capturing their sweet friendship. So, from Lily and Owen, Happy Valentine's Day! 

They are very pious children - both deep in prayer before diving into their cupcakes.

This is what it looks like when toddlers try to high-five each other.

No live music on your romantic Valentine's date? Follow Lily and Owen's lead and start your own band!

And no date would be complete without a poke in the eye ...

Finally, Lily and Owen with their REAL Valentine's ... Owen's Mom and Lily's Dad.
