Do you want to know what’s cuter than cute? My beautiful, curly haired little boy holding one of his chickens! It really doesn’t get much cuter than a beautiful child and a sweet hen. We live on a little wannabe farm on the outskirts of Kingman AZ (about 100 miles south of Las Vegas) and chickens are a big thing around here. We have about 40 of them and have raised most of them ourselves since they were tiny, newly hatched chicks. This sweet girl was hatched here at our house – which, by the way, is an AMAZING thing for your children to witness. If you ever get the chance to let your children experience hatching some chicks, do not pass it up!
I’ve found a sweet spot right near our house with the most amazing light, and the rich, warm colors that I love so much. This first image of my little Elliott ranks in my top 10 favorite images I’ve ever taken. I cannot wait to get this one up on my wall. Elliott has such a sweet, gentle, compassionate spirit and I think you can see that in his eyes in this photograph. It sums up his personality perfectly.
And just because I’m sharing my sweet boy here, I wanted to add these images also that were taken a few days earlier. They were taken at about the same time in the evening, but the light was less filtered (clearer sky) – the colors just come alive in fiery golden tones. I love this little guy so much! I was a blessed gal the day I became his mama. <3
