Chasing Moments | Sarasota Child Photographer

It has been another exciting and event filled month for my family.

Thomas kicked off this month’s events with Kindergarten Rodeo and field Day.  I love the intensity in his face and was shocked to see the muscle definition in his little six-year old body.  He received second place in all of kindergarten for reading counts (coming in at 310 points).  The best part for him was having two of his buddies on his side. He also got first place in end-of-year class spelling bee.  He certainly didn’t get that from me.  Kindergarten graduation went off without a hitch, after being rescheduled due to a nasty stomach bug that hit the kindergarten classes in a big way.  Our family was one of the statistics – systematically being taken out every 48 hours.   I will spare you all the details, but, let me tell you, it was NOT pretty.

I had to do comparison shots from the first and last days of school. The physical changes aren’t all that drastic from the pictures. Both kids still fit into their first day of school outfits, so I made them wear them. But Thomas outgrew his shoes. Both kids are a good two inches taller.  Madelyn lost two teeth this year, and Thomas lost one (love that missing spot). We included some of the kids’ best friends in the images too. Love the personality that comes through. I also love that I can see Caroline peeking through the side-light both days. Not so proud of the fingerprints on the windows, but hey, this is real life.

Madelyn worked hard and practiced in dance class for end of the year showcase and finale.  It is so amazing to watch her transform when she gets on stage.  The smile and sparkle has always been there on stage, but this year, WOWEE, there was also some serious sass and attitude.  She had a ballet showcase in studio and performed Jazz, Tap, and ballet dances at recital which I was lucky enough to document in pictures. Caroline also participated in her second recital (first time on-stage without me). She was amazing!  The fear she talked about was gone and the sparkle came through.  I didn’t have my camera ready when Caroline was on for dress rehearsal and didn’t want to break the recital rules by taking pictures during.  Thankfully, the talented Stage Door Preschool director’s husband, Chuck Manahan, got the one of her below. Heart officially melted.   Dance ClassPINIMAGE


Caroline has been begging to go to the beach and we finally went to Siesta Beach. She was in her full glory, making sand castles and splashing in the sand. She definitely gets her love for the sand and sea from me and my mother.

Finally, we celebrated Father’s Day at home working on refreshing our landscaping and some pool time. We ended the evening with my father. We have some gifts in our family that just keep on reappearing and being regifted. I am proud to say, I added to that collection by giving my dad a bright pink Flamingo for his front yard. I can’t wait to see when or where it makes an appearance next.
