It snowed on Saturday. Not much, just a touch over an inch, but while it was coming down, it was magnificent. If you’ve ever lived here – or anywhere in the country with a regular snow-filled winter – you know exactly the magic that snowfall can possess. There is something about brown grasses and expectant branches, the way the trees seem to reach toward the heavens as the snow falls softly, quietly upon their limbs. Falling snow is one of my most favorite things on this planet. Combine it with two of the most beautiful creatures that I have ever laid eyes on and you get……..this:
It was a balmy 19 degrees and the sun was quickly setting, so the girls and I began and ended this session in the span of 15 minutes. Their noses were red, their cheeks aglow. But my heart? So very warm. They loved every minute of it – a feat in and of itself for two girls who have their photographs taken often. Very very geez-already-mom-get-that-thing-outta-my-face often.
I hope I have the chance for more snow sessions in the future. This one was the most fun. Ever.
