little lamb – indianpolis children’s photographer

March 24th, 2009 , Posted in Indianapolis Children's Photographer, Personal

Bella is fascinated with animals of all sorts right now, but bunnies and sheep seem to be the creatures of the week. She was amazed to hear that the little lamb she chose to carry around all day was her grandmother’s as little girl, then mine, and now her’s. I have to say I feel a little amazed that this one little sheep has been there for 3
generations of little girls.

Just a quick post today since my to do list is a mile long. I had so much fun working with this little lady, she was full of life, exactly how I love kids to be! And she was reading the Boxcar Children…I remember reading that when I was her age. 😉
