I can’t believe we’ve been doing this project over a year now – I honestly can’t imagine not doing it now – it’s something I treasure so much. Now please head on over to visit the wonderful friend I am so thankful to for believing in me and asking me to be a part of this, Amy of Amy Lucy Photography, Minneapolis – she also has two beautiful little girls too and always has the most wonderful messages for them…
until next month, Kirsty xx

amy grace - kirsty, you are giving them a map. a wise, honest, carefully drawn map. and teaching them that feelings go with it, and that they are their own sources. you pictures…off the charts gorgeous. tree climbing is an obsession in my house. and we live somewhere in which there is a shortage 🙂 this tree, their wide open, joyful faces, illustrate the very thing you are telling them. i love your pictures. they make me feel happy. from this far away. happy and free. but kirsty, you are the best mother. i always leave with that knowledge. xoxo

Sara T - I love the color and light in these. Those outfits are so darn cute. What is more quintessential than capturing your girls climbing trees? I love your words and the talks you have about being happy, keeping happiness and that it comes from within. Always adore their sweet faces and your letters of endearment. XOXO
