Sweet Sweet Peas

My favorite subject for photos these last couple of years is a beautiful, funny, sweet, and amazing little girl. Okay, I may be a bit biased as I happen to be lucky enough to be her Mama. But she realy is all those things and more. So, here I share with you a couple of recent photo shoots of my daughter.

This first series was prompted by my dear friend who got a kick out of a photo she saw of someone surrounded by green peas with the caption "Surround Yourself With Peas". On the day my husband agreed to move forward with our adoption application, he simply said, "We will call her Swee' Pea." That was three years and five months before we were matched with our daughter, Yi Xiao Dai. We continued to call her Swee' Pea until we decided on her American name. Our close friends and we still lovingly refer to her as Sweet Pea on occassion. So, this friend of mine, who happens to grow the sweetest sweet peas in memory of her mother, thought it would be cute to take a photo of my daughter and give it the caption "Sweet Sweet Peas." I couldn't pick just one to share, so here are my favorites.

This next series shows Sweet Pea's silly side, and her first experience with a hammock. Enough said. The pictures speak for themselves.
