A Girl Can Dream

Many little girls dream of their wedding.

The white dress. The pearls. The romance.

The perfect flowers. The perfect shoes. The perfect day.

And while it is still years away, the dreams continue as she listens to stories of the day her daddy married mommy.

Being allowed to play-dress up in her Mom's wedding gown only adds to the fun.

But suddenly, her mom sees her as a young lady. 

As a mother, I imagine this is both exciting and terrifying.

Her little girl is growing up.

So she cherishes those goofy faces, tiny curls, and snuggles...

...Because as all parents learn, "the days are long, but the years are short."  

Sarah and Malia...I loved being a part of this project. I hope these pictures become a precious reminder of the care-free days of childhood as well as a glimpse into the dreams that are yet to come.
