When you’re five, there’s a direct link between the dirt on your clothes and the fun that was had. At least that’s what my mom always told me.
So let go of the wheel and let the kids get dirty! The messiness makes for great photo ops and big-time smiles.
Heck, they’ll need a bath later anyway. And there’s always Tide.
Here’s to rainy days!

With her espresso hair and alabaster skin, doe-eyed Renee (also known as ‘bird’ to mommy) is one of my favourite kids to photograph. And right now it’s all about dresses, bows, and all things girly – well-suited then for our photoshoot where she was allowed to play dress up all morning.
My hat, it has three corners,
Three corners has my hat,
And had it not three corners,
It would not be my hat.
Kids are pretty darned cute on their own but one of my favourite ways to amp up the cute quotient is to add a hat. Little ones look adorable in chunky knit caps or bright sun hats – even better if they’re a little on the big side. As they grow, smaller versions of what mom or dad might wear show off their burgeoning personalities as they ham it up in front of the lens.
I can’t wait to check out the caps my little models will be wearing this summer!
