Purple Flowers

When Josh was little, I took the most amazing photo of him outside our house at the beginning of spring. The purple flowers were up and we had not mowed our yard for the first time yet, and he was in these little overalls and had bent over to pick one of the flowers and all you could see was these purple flowers.

So, in that though, I decided to try to get some photos of Ellie in the purple flowers. However, the grass was still wet, Ellie was squirmy wormy and she was quite interested in eating the flower (again -- remember the daffodils??). The first few she just wasn't quite awake yet, I don't think so they were more pensive. I think I would have liked better to have had a little less sun as well -- for the shadows. But, nonetheless, here are some of my favs.

This one is my favorite -- because I love the way her lips are pursed out.

How beautiful! I can't tell she was squirmy or anything - you're a great photographer (and of course, she's an excellent subject)! :)

Too cute!! Now where's that photo of Josh? I'd love to see a few shots of Josh at a younger age (especially at Ellie's age!!)

Aw! I love the 5th one down! She's adorable! I'm so jealous of the green grass/flowers. We had a new dusting of snow last night... after a week of high 50's!
