Alyssandra's Backyard Child Session

While little brother Colin was napping, I decided to go outside with Alyssandra to do a little session.  I wanted the same kind of carefree, not fancy, just about the giggles and smiles type of session like we did with her brother Colin, and boy did she do great!  

With a little bribery at just the right time of day, you can accomplish almost anything with a 4 year old ;-)  We decided to wear her patriotic summer dress that she just got from her aunt for her birthday since the 4th of July is right around the corner.  Bare foot, carefree, summer fun with giggles...how could we go wrong?!...

I am beyond happy that I took the time to do this with my little girl.  She is growing up so fast, and I want to capture every moment that I can.  I can not wait to hang up some of these photos of her and some from Colin's session--I just love them!  I can see her heart through her eyes and hear her giggles when I look at these.  So, thank you to my sweet Alyssandra Rose for letting mommy take your pictures in the backyard, I will always treasure them.
