ok, so that is not exactly how the quote goes. we just could not resist grabbing the tutus and heading out to this remarkable stand of poppies located just off of the interstate off ramp. love that our highway department sows these seeds.
there is a reason…..this is the car that Sydney is driving a couple of days a week. where did the time go? I waited outside to get a photo of her actually driving it this morning, but the car had some mechanical problems….so I have to wait to ambush again next week. she is quite used to me doing this, and realizes that I simply must document these milestones in her life. such a good sport. in a nod to denying that global warming exists, I currently drive what could be confused with a school bus. yesterday, she decided that she needed to try to park it in the lot at the grocery store……now that was comical! I can’t even park it! all I can say is, enjoy your kids while they are little because you really do blink and it is gone….it’s why I love photos, and why I need photos.
several months ago, I received a call from a woman who wanted to know if I could photograph her very quickly. She explained to me that she had just begun chemotherapy to battle a very aggressive form of breast cancer and was supposed to begin losing her hair any day…….I was so honored to have received that call. We met the next day and spent nearly four hours together photographing her hair in all of its’ glory.Not long after that we met up again, this time to photograph the physical evidence of what chemo had done to her……It may have taken her hair, but as you can see……..it has not taken that fire out of her eyes.www.kristihedbergphotography.com
