Last week my beautiful friend Brooke allowed me take some photographs of her and her son Grant in an open field on Kent Island. The sky was overcast that day, and provided a wonderful soft box in the sky. An overcast sky can be even better than a shining sun, as it can provide for even soft lighting even in the the middle of the day.
I decided to get out my kraft supplies and make a flower crown for the occasion! I learned that these are actually much harder to make than I had anticipated. The Youtube tutorial I watched (how all great floral crowns begin) made it look easy peasy. I started to have so much more respect for florists that make beautiful floral crowns on the regular. I resorted to using my glue gun to attach the flowers to the wire, sometimes you gotta do whatever works!
The floral crown ended up coming together and Brooke looked stunning wearing it. The light was absolutely perfect, and it ended up being the most ideal afternoon to snap these two at this time in their life.
I love small snap shots of time. This snap shot will show Grant's little feet learning to walk. Something that in the future he will do without any assistance for the rest of his life. These moments are precious and pass by so quickly. Before you know it the last stage is just a memory. A constant reminder that life is quick but beautiful.
I think moments like this deserve more afternoons to wear floral crowns and love on your first baby in an open field. Just because we can.
