My Beautiful Flower

I always feel like it's cheating when a photographer puts her own kids on a blog.  Not that the pictures aren't beautiful, but it's just that they are not technically "clients" and are sometimes photographed under threat of extreme bodily harm if they don't cooperate.  (Which, by the way, I think it is INCREDIBLY difficult to photograph your own children...and slightly aggravating because they know how to push your buttons!)
All that to say, I am going to "cheat" today.  My daughter turned 12 last week and we decided to get some photos marking the big event.  She was very cooperative (she has a flair for the dramatic!) and is, if I do say so myself, quite beautiful!
 
Ma petite fleur (my little flower)...
  
We found this great patch of dandelions.  They are as bright and sunny as my beautiful girl.
  I love the one of the flower in front of her face.
  
  
Love this bench.  It looks like we're in the country...but we're not!!
  
  
  
Downtown Tacoma has so many great places!!  I love these steps!
 
Happy 12th Birthday, beautiful girl!!  Henry Beecher once said, "Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made...", but obviously he had never met you!!
  I love you and love being your mom!!
