I love having a daughter. I always knew I would. But having Brady is like nothing I ever dreamed of. This girl is something else, and anyone who knows her knows EXACTLY what I am talking about. She is all heart, all fun, and no holding back. She's a drama queen, a tom boy, a mush mush, and a toughie, all rolled into the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen. (I know these are my mommy goggles, but I don't care!)
One of the greatest things about having a daughter, especially one like Brady girl, is getting to experience life as a little girl all over again. Brady wants to do things I never dreamed of doing as a little girl. Brady loves to run around and play Star Wars, and yet she also loves to do ballet and dress in tutus. And while, as a child, I would have never had the guts to get dolled up in my black bodysuit and ballet slippers, this little lady does it with gusto!
From the very first class I knew we had found something very special for her, and I knew I'd have to capture this on film- for both of us. And so this past week, I asked her teacher if I could sneak in and shoot a little during class. Miss Jane (of Jane Baron's Academy of Dance) was wonderful and let me go crazy! Here are some of my favorites.
Brady, you are one of the greatest blessings of my entire life. I pray that you always live life with the unabashed confidence you have today. I pray that you never change. And I pray that you never forget how much I adore you.
Love you, Brady girl.
