A letter to my daughter | Oregon family photographer

Dear Sweet Eva,

You are now officially finished with the 3rd grade and now considered a 4th grader.  I know I always comment on how old you’re getting and that in and of itself must seem old, but these milestone type things just keep coming and reminding of me of what a grown up young lady you’re becoming.  Luckily for me, you’re still discovering the world and continually remind me of what a spectacular place we live in and your wonder of it all helps me to be thankful of how you’re still my sweet, innocent, little girl.

One of the things I’m really excited about in you finishing the 3rd grade is that we get to spend the next three months doing all these fun things together.  Getting to spend so much time with you is one of my very favorite things about summer.  Even this first week we have some great adventures planned.  Maybe you’ll wear these heart-shaped sunglasses even!

Regardless, I just wanted you to know how much I LOVE and adore spending my time with you.  Really, there is no greater joy.  Here’s to us and a delightfully happy summer, love.



For the technical film information, color images are Fuji 400H and black & white are Fuji Acros 100 all shot on the Canon Eos 3.
