Little Lucy has spent the last month or two, immersed in all things Oz. It started with an adapted children's book based on the original story by L. Frank Baum. She couldn't get enough. We read more adaptations and eventually read the entire first book! We watched movies, we listened to the original soundtrack, we reenacted the story many times over. The Portland Children's Museum even has a current exhibit that is all about Oz. She walked the yellow brick road, hopped on the Wicked Witch's bicycle and climbed through her castle. She even met Glinda and her friends tonight on Halloween Eve! Naturally, Lucy chose Dorothy for her costume this year and mom and dad eagerly joined in as the Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion. I love how this magical story took hold of our Lucy's imagination. I wish each of you a magical Halloween and hope that your imagination takes you to new and wondrous places!
I think I fall a little in love with the kids that I photograph, and these three are no exception. This family knows how to have fun and we spent a beautiful fall day at Champoeg State Park playing and laughing. I taught first grade with Cindy my very first year when her oldest daughter was just a baby! Now they have three beautiful children and it was such a pleasure to meet the whole crew!
