Photo-a-day: Day 25 | Baby photography

{Photo-a-Day Project: A personal project that I undertake every January for an entire month taking one photo a day of my children.}

Four photos I have taken of her hair.
Four years in succession I have watched  it grow.
I have never cut it.
I don’t know when I will.
Maybe it is the part I hold on to.
The part that still is my baby.
Maybe I can’t let go.
For now, I sit.
I appreciate.
I smile.
There is so much beauty in simplicity.

    My little girl is two and a half and I can’t bring myself to cut her hair either! I don’t want to cut away the gorgeousness :)

    And I remember every one of those 4 images. I can’t believe how long her hair has grown and how perfectly perfect her little ringlets are. Such a touching photo.

  6. I don’t have a daughter. Must be an incredible feeling. Beautiful photograph.

    My nine year old just chopped her long hair off. It was more of a “letting go” for this mama than it was for her. And now? She is the cutest thing ever!!!! LOVE her short hair!
    Feeling your mama heart. :)

    This is so beautiful, Kristen. My 9-months-old baby girl has short hair yet and I can’t wait to brush curls like these…
