I met up with the Hobdy family on Sunday for a quick photo session....
They are quite possibly one of the sweetest families I've ever taken photos for. The amount of love shown between the three of them is what some people wish their entire lives for.... and let me just say, little Conner... well, his pretty blue eyes will just make you melt. He was such a happy baby... he did SO good for us! I'm pretty sure he LOVED the camera - we got so many good ones of him right looking at me! He instantly reminded me of my absolute favorite cabbage patch doll from my childhood (who else had one?!).. he was just the cutest!
I'm especially glad the weather cooperated with us. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and the sunshine made all of their photos just that more beautiful!
I'm so glad they trusted me with their photos and I hope that they love them as much as I do! :) Check out the slideshow below for more photos of this beautiful family!
Oh, and speaking of cabbage patch dolls - yes, I STILL have mine. It's sitting upstairs in our loft at home :) my great-aunt, Eudora, held on to it once I let go of it. (They use to have to wash it when I was taking a nap, otherwise I never let it go. lol) Eudora is one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. She always KNEW I'd want it back one day so she kept it sitting on a mantle at her house for all these years. Last summer, while we were in Texas visiting, she gave it back to me. It was imperative that she made sure that it went back to me. It's now one of the most special and most loved items that I own. Now that I'm older, I know that I'll treasure it for the rest of my life.
If you have children or grandchildren that are absolutely in LOVE with a certain toy - hang on to it, even when they no longer need it. Then give it back to them when they get older.
They may thank you one day :)
