Magic Lighting

When we got home from church today, we stayed outside for a while and got some pictures of Kate in this cute little dress that her Aunt Barb made. (She didn't make it for Kate, but we are using it while it fits.) She looked so pretty.

Normally I tend to go for the overcast days for picture taking, to avoid the harsh shadows. Boy, did I get lucky with these or what? I don't know if I'll ever be able to reproduce the effect!

I love the emotion you capture in all your pictures! Kate looks so happy and so grown up.

Helena, The pictures are gorgeous, and I'm so pleased to see Kate wearing the dress. I made this dress for my "Intermediate Clothing Construction" class at BYU, where one assignment was to make a child's dress. I'm glad it's getting some use, and I'm hoping it will be the kind of thing we can pass around a bit, like the owl dress. I'm glad she's finally big enough! Our kids will probably be in it a full 6 months earlier... =)
