11/52 (Project 365) | Beaumont Documentary Style Photographer
71: I’m late! Traditionally and unapologetically, my tree goes up the first week in November. It’s *always* up by Thanksgiving, but this year was a different story. But hey, its up and the 3 year old is fascinated and it’s all worth it.
72: We moved in May. Packed up his train table, somehow lost the hardware (of course). The pieces have been leaning against the wall in his bedroom since August, and I finally ordered new hardware, so (of course) we found the original hardware the next day. Watching him play with his trains just like the first time was so cute, and he’s officially addicted to the train table again.
73: The day I delivered my last busy season gallery, I came home to this sunset. Apparently the angels were singing along with me.
74: All the toys this kid has, and this happens on a regular basis….
75: when we first moved out here, he didn’t even like the sound of the vacuum cleaner, much less any of the larger machinery we have rolling around. A few weeks ago, he rode the 4-wheeler for the first time (his idea). Daddy had some tractor work to do on Friday and he ran as fast as his little legs would go trying to catch a ride on the tractor before it left.
76: My mom = probably his favorite adult ever. Makes my heart happy.
77: Oh, this one is very special. There’s a new girl in town, and her name is Shakira. She’s a Pumpkin Spice Evermore from The House of Flynn, and y’all, there’s no exaggeration when I say that this is THE best quality bag I have ever owned. Ever. The fact that its a camera bag makes me feel like I just need multiples – one for my every day bag, one for a camera bag, maybe a weekend bag. Of course as soon as I start taking photos of anything else, E has to jump in and get his share of the spotlight too! (PS, did you know his middle name is Flynn? Glad I have a photo of my two Flynns!)
These are sessions that are very near and dear to my heart. Remember the importance of getting in the frame with your kids and being present, not only in their lives and the memories they carry with them, but also in their tangible heirlooms. I would love to be your personal family historian. Send me a message and let’s chat about doing a personalized documentary style session with your family!
