Running Full Speed Ahead

1 turning 2.

2 turning 3.

3 turning 4.


5 turning 6.

Norah has always loved the beach.  Even when we sat her on the sand as a infant she would clap with glee.  When she was just about to turn two, I started taking the same photo of her every year, running full speed ahead toward the water.   It's not just the image of her doing something that she loves that moves me- it's seeing each image, each year and knowing how quickly she really is running toward the open waters ahead.  

Happy 6th birthday, Norah! 


  1. Oh my goodness she is so big it just made me burst into tears. life is so precious, thank you for capturing such a sweet moment in an amazing little girls life. i can still see her sea green eyes looking up at me as i pet her head to sleep. lots of love to you all!!! Mrs. Wallock ;)
