School days

It’s been a great year!

I really enjoyed teaching my little missy to read and watch her learn so many new things.

We kept it fun with field trips, dance,  &  special days with friends.

I have more respect than ever for homeschooling mothers.

Teaching isn’t for the faint of heart. Some days I felt like declaring the whole day a recess!
But I’ll treasure this year for the sweet memories & the new insight that I have about how she learns,

what her strengths are, & her lively imagination.
We plan to fill our summer with lots of games, craft, science experiments.. and relaxing too!

A beautiful day.. with the Kelley family!copyright mandy lynne

I had the pleasure of photographing photographer Janeen Kelley and her sweet family while in Florida.

She did such a fantastic job at putting this vintage style session together.

I was so delighted with everything!

Her daughter Lorelai is the ultimate little doll.. such a sweetheart. :)

Florida 2012

Special memories from our trip

©Mandy Lynne F1It was an exciting experience for the kids to join my parents in Florida.
Autumn couldn’t wait to fly.. she was so sure she would see unicorns out the window on the flight over.
Garrett was fascinated by sea shells and Clay’s first memories of the ocean.
We spent the week swimming in the pool, visiting the parks, outdoor markets , delicious cafes.. and playing at the beach!

Arlyn Beach session . Mandy Lynne -Springfield MO Senior Photographer

Maybe it’s the swimsuits that I have been stockpiling, or just my usual yearning for summer..

but the beach has been calling my name!  

I let the salty air fill my lungs and lost myself in exploring and taking pictures for a week.  It felt liberating.

Arlyn was my lovely model for an afternoon.
She is young, beautiful and looking forward to an exciting future after college.
One of her hobbies includes film photography, which she processes herself in a dark room.
