There is no denying that my niece Caylee is growing up (no matter how much everyone in my family wants her to stay little)! Ha! She is just one year shy of starting Junior High, she no longer thinks cartoons are cool, and is becoming a little shy in front of people she doesn't know. Those little things make me sad because she isn't a little girl anymore. However, it is so much fun watching her grow into who she is becoming. She's now at the age where I can share with her what my favorite TV shows where when I was her age, or text her telling her I've picked out the next Netflix movie we are watching on our girl’s night. She loves telling me about the new book she just read, something funny she saw on Pinterest and we love to talk about our favorite singers and bands. Caylee and I both love music and she knows that I'm always (always) up for a dance party. That has been something we've shared since she could walk. If the music is good…then we dance!
Caylee is beautiful, funny, smart, and silly. What stands out the most to me is her caring and compassionate nature. Caylee is always thinking of the feelings of others and so considerate. When I hear her say things like, "How is your remodeling going Steph" or "Is Peanut feeling better" it makes me stop in my tracks for a second. Those are things that wouldn't even be on the radar for most kids, but not Caylee. She genuinely cares for people especially those in her family! She has such a big heart and is always willing to help in any way she can. I am a very proud Aunt indeed!
Here are just a few of my favorite images from Caylee's session. We stumbled upon the most stunning location. Trees, a small creek and a sunset that would you make you smile from the inside out. It was a great day! Beautiful place for a beautiful girl! Enjoy and Happy Wednesday
