     i took these photos of asher right before he turned 3. he is wearing a tie dyed shirt that roman and i made when i was still pregnant with asher. we dyed and tie dyed a bunch of onesies + matching big boy shirts together that summer. asher's hair is long + curly in these pictures and on his birthday i cut his hair for the hundredth time while he sat our little stool in the living room.

     i love these photographs, the last portraits of my two year old.

     these pictures remind me of these, taken of asher at 21 months old.

    1. Thank, Misty! I didn't honestly even plan to capture these last portraits of him before his third birthday, but I happened upon them while scrolling through photos in Lightroom and realized how perfect they were!

  5. I died when I saw these the first time over on Flickr and of course, I die again. Seriously! When did they get so old? And those eyes matched with those curls ALWAYS kill me.
