Sunday Snapshot: 14 from 2013

I did it last year. The year before. And even the year before that.

It’s sort of a thing, I suppose.

And, since 2013 doesn’t want to be left out, here are my favorites from the last year. Not necessarily technically my favorites, from a photography standpoint.

Just from a mama’s standpoint.

1. Princess Vivienne.


2. My incredibly silly pony.


3. My brave and beautiful Velvet, just days before she passed away.


4. Isabelle… being Isabelle.


5. Tallula, home one wonderful year.


6. My babies. Every one of ’em.


7. My biggest boy, the graduate.


8. Sophie. Sweet Sophie.


9. Dalton and his dog. Or, probably more accurately, my dog.


10. Poppy, beaming on her big day.


11. My first baby… all grown up.


12. Noah on his birthday. I have this as my iPhone screensaver, still.


13. Dalton loving on his baby sister.


14. And, on Christmas Eve, all my babies sitting around our Christmas tree. Fur babies, too.


It was a very good year.
