{Daddy Daughter Dance}

Our church puts on a Daddy Daughter dance each year and it is the highlight of Addison's year! This is her 3rd year going and she absolutely adores this special night with her dad all to herself.  

The day requires some primping and pampering for sure.  She went with a few friends for a quick manicure and pedicure the morning of the dance.  

And then it is always fun to pick out her dress.  We found this gorgeous pink dress on Amazon this year and it was perfectly girly.  She almost chose one that was more fitted and just seemed 'older'...and I'm sure glad she decided on this one instead. She looked stunning!  

Dad always come through with a beautiful corsage (ahem, that mom ordered).  And Addison picked out a boutonniere this year. 

Absolutely love these two and adore their relationship. She's a daddy's girl and loves any excuse to spend time with him...whether it's working or playing, she always wants to tag along and help.  She wanted to be extra early to the dance so they wouldn't miss a second of the fun and they stayed the entire time too (and grabbed dinner with friends afterwards). 
Love this sweet smile and those dimples just kill me.  

I helped out at the dance again, but this time as a photographer. We have some amazingly talented photogs in our Stake so it was all their equipment and lighting and cameras...but it was sure fun to see all these girls (and all my primary kiddos) dressed up with their dads and take some pictures.  

And a quick shot towards the end of the dance. Addison's hair has completely fallen out because these two really dance their socks off!  Major swinging and twirling! 

Such a sweet night it was for both of them.  Memories that will last a lifetime!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
