Madeline's Five Year Portrait Photos {Gilbert Photographer}

Tuesday, January 22, 2013


so, since this little girl is about to be 6, and i'll have an entirely new portrait session to blog, i figured i better put her 5 year old portraits out there into cyber space, because they are way too cute to keep to myself.  

five is a really big year.  to me, it's the year your toddler really turns into a KID.  this is the thing i really wish someone had explained to me before i became a parent, how much you look forward to the changes and progress your children have in life, but at the same time how sad it is to see the old baby/toddler/child grow up!  so five year old portraits are a must!  it's essential to capture this phase of your child's life.  

she is in all her sweetness.  i was dying to catch some cherry blossoms, but sadly, the trees bloomed one at a time and for mere moments.  so this bouganvilla perfectly captured Madeline's new favorite color: pink!

 oh the places you'll go! by Dr. Seuss  how does any parent make it though this book without shedding a tear.  it's so beautifully written and so perfectly wraps up the journey of life.  i saw an adorable idea floating around Pinterest about getting each of your childrens' teachers to sign a copy of this book and give it to them at graduation.  i haven't done that, but we do read this on the eve of the first day of school.

 and she's off!  off to kindergarten, off to new friends and new adventures.  off to the whirlwind of school, where suddenly you turn around and your baby bird is leaving the nest!
