Miss “S” was such a sport for this session.  30 minutes into the session it started to SNOW!  Tiny white snowflakes were falling all around us.  And I can’t lie, it was very cold!  But we wrapped her scarf tighter, took a break in the warm car for a clothing change and some heat, and danced and jumped to stay warm.  I adore this girl.  She is witty, fun and has a spunky attitude.  So when I asked her to dance and sing a Justin Bieber song, she looked at me like I was from another planet.   Really?  I hadn’t met a 9 year old girl yet, who didn’t swoon over Justin Bieber.  Well maybe he isn’t her ‘thing’, I reasoned.

On the way to this session, I had stopped at the mini mart for a pack of bubble gum.  Original Flavor Bubble Yum actually.  I remember being 9, and thinking Bubble Yum was the best treat, and thinking there was nothing better than blowing BIG bubbles.  Big, PINK bubbles!  I used to look in the mirror and watch as they grew bigger, bigger, bigger, and POP!  And it always made me laugh.  Why is it that a popping bubble always makes a person laugh?

So while she was laying in the grass and blowing bubbles, and laughing that genuine 9-year old laugh, tiny white snowflakes were falling magically around us.  It was a cold and beautiful day and we had a blast.  Here are a few pictures from our bubble gum and snowflake session….

If only it had been ‘snowing’ bubble gum!  what a fun day that would be!

…and then she sang Justin Bieber all the way back to the car.  Go figure.

If you stopped in to take a peek at the pictures, I hope you leave your comments.   And don’t forget to like Images by Kristin on Facebook.  You’ll see a link in the upper right corner of my blog!

    Kristin! Having you do Savannah’s photo session has been an absolute treat in so many ways! Most of the viewers don’t know that I broke down in tears because I was so overjoyed by the outcome and the way you presented them to me with music playing throughout the slide show; not to mention the journey that brought us to even the opportunity to have the session. Thank you so much…can’t wait to get your call that the framed photos are in! Thank you for helping me with the frame selections as well; they are so unique and fun. You are amazing and it has been so fun sharing the photos through your blog.
