The Way I View...│Sacramento Family Photographer

It's hard to believe a month has passed already and here we are in March ready to share the February round of "The Way I View..." with 12 other amazing photographers I've met through Clickinmoms. Don't forget to click over and see Breanna Peterson's point of view and continue clicking through to see all 12 photographer's views for the month.

February's theme? Sweetness and love.

As I thought of what I wanted to photograph to express this theme I was left with many different ideas, but not a lot of time left in the month to execute them.  Then as I was reviewing my February images there were a few that jumped out at me right away as perfectly fitting for expressing how I view sweetness and love.

First off were these two images of my 3 1/2 yo daughter at her first day of dance class with her older and much adored cousin.  These two girls could not love each other more and my heart always flutters when they see each other, be it only a day or hour since they've been apart, and tightly embrace with the innocent and all encompassing love only a child could express for another.


The other two images that stood out to me were of my son and his kindergarten teacher when she came for a home visit.  We received a letter stating the kindergarten teachers were available for home visits on a voluntary basis, a program that exists in hopes of fostering more open communication between parents and teachers.  We felt comfortable with the amazing Mrs. Randazzo already, but knew Myles would be beyond excited to have her come for a visit and we were right!

At the end of a very difficult day where we found out Myles' teacher's long-time teaching partner and friend had terminal stomach cancer, Mrs. Randazzo still gave of herself and came to our home visit.  For an hour and a half she delighted Myles letting him be her tour director and entertainer, letting her overwhelming love for children and teaching flow out and make our little boy's day!  Maybe even his year!  This joyful experience for him, during a tragic day for her seems the epitome of sweetness and love.

Wow, Mindy. Your sweet boy has an amazingly selfless teacher. Teachers like that are far and few in between. He is one lucky kiddo. Interestingly enough, I kinda like the reflection in the table...

The photos of your baby girl in dance class are so sweet. How fun it is that she gets to be there with her older cousin!
