There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

It always is so interesting to me to see how very different the personalities of siblings can be. For all their similarities, each child is a unique being and full of so many special things all their own. These two siblings were sweet, mild-mannered and oh-so-fun to photograph. What I loved was that big sis delighted in taking off her shoes and socks to go wading in the muddy waters. She LOVED it. So much, in fact, that she didn’t want to put her shoes back on at all, preferring to feel the dirt and earth beneath her feet for our walk back to the car. Little brother, on the other hand, was not so keen on the idea of the squishy mud through his toes and was quite anxious to get his shoes back on.They reminded me a bit of my own two children, and reminded me once again how our differences are what make us amazing.
During this session, we had a fun little treat–snow in Phoenix!Well, at least our version of snow–white billowed from the blossoming tree that seemed like little flurries swirling around. Love, love…
