Fredrick and Livia

I think sometimes I get so caught up in trying to get the perfect shot - one that is completely flawless technically, looking like it came right from the glossy pages of a magazine.

But then there are times like this - with a strong willed 18-month-old, and a one-month-old who likes to scream. And these are the times when I realize that this is what photography is really about for me. It's not about perfection. It's about capturing what I want to remember - a funny little boy who is often rather stoic, but at times gets in these crazy silly moods. Who likes to read Goodnight, Moon - upside-down, apparently. A sweet little baby girl who loves to be held, with beautiful deep brown eyes.

So I present to you my beautiful, sweet nephew and niece. Distance between loved ones is so hard, and the miles between us are going to become even more enormous soon. Fredrick and Livia, I love you so much, and I am so lucky to have been able to spend the last week with you. You are perfection for me.

I love these photos Linnea! And, of course, I love these children! How can grandma order some prints?
