+ happy birthday, lydia! part one. +

I originally wasn’t going to post these, because they were taken late evening and came out very noisy…my camera doesn’t handle high ISO very well. 🙁

But, Paige told me to blog them anyways, so here I am and here they are.

Lydia’s birthday was this past weekend and we went to a crazy outdoor play at the park in German Village. Wine, cheese, and my pretty girls.

Happy birthday, darling. You mean the world to me. You are so pretty. <3 I love summer.

{ It was I who taught her to walk,
taking her by the arms;
but she did not realize it was I who healed her.
I led her with cords of human kindness,
with ties of love;
I lifted the yoke from her neck
and bent down to feed her.
Hosea 11:3-4 }

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME, LAUREN LANKFORD?! Talk about an elitist photographer–these are so good. And you girls are all so pretty they'd be good even if they were taken on a cell phone camera. Seriously.

  2. Paige Baker says:

    Oh, and at midnight on a cellphone camera, at that. Come on, these make my heart stir.

    paige this is why i love you to death.

  4. Lauren Nicole says:

    dude, exactly what paige said. these are SO pretty and lovely, probably some of my favorites if not my favorite photos that you've taken. photos like these are why i love photography and what got me into it; candid, casual, simple shots are the best. capturing moments and memories, that's what it's about. i love shoots, don't get me wrong; but to me, THIS is photography at its finest. so awesome lauren, really. <3 <3
