Seriously, this girl should be in pictures. What a beautiful child model she could be!! Just love that beautiful smile. I hope our Maddy smiles like that someday. We are getting some pretty good grins and giggles from her as we bond. :-)

Nancy said...

Beautiful .... and such fun.
I hope there is a Sailor Boy Oliver soon!

ps ... what kind of camera are you using? Your photos are always so nice.

Melissa said...

Beautiful pictures - I love that first one!

Kelly-Ann said...

What beautiful pictures......as always, you take great pictures of your children. I am going to remember your great ideas when we get our baby girl!
Where are these pictures taken? It seems like a beautiful place with a very nice beach. We are in Canada but also have a place in Tampa......so I was curious to know where this beautiful place is.

She is just so beautiful! So full of life, and laughter. I wonder if she will ever know how many hearts she had truly touched. How many she has inspired. Your pictures are lovely as always. You always capture her perfectly.
You have been heavy on my heart lately. I am praying for you and have faith that the Lord will heal Sophie's vision and also for your Grandfather. Hope all is well with you.
God bless you and keep you from harm's way

Hi Shana
What pretty pictures of Sophie! I love her sailor girl dress! Where did you buy it?

Like the picture of her peeking upside down. Emmy does that all the time, now.

Wish we could visit with you guys at the beach. It looks lovely. Although, we are having some nice Indian summer weather here :)

Shanna those shots are beautiful!! Then again look who your photographing. It's not hard to get some good shots when you have an amazing model.

What kind of camera do you use? I'm in the market for a new one and would love to know what you use.

Anyway I can't wait to see how Sophie will model her new glasses.

Shana said...

Thanks so much! To answer a couple questions...

I use an inexpensive, EASY camera- the Kodak EasyShare C663- I really love it (I wish I could figure out how to use a more sophisticated camera, but I'm happy with this one as it takes great photos).

I found the sailor dress/hat at Macy's last year. I make it a point to buy things in larger sizes in advance (whenever I see cute things I can't resist). I'm now ready to start shopping in size 5 and 6 (Sophie currently wears size 3T).

Again, thanks for the compliments- hopefully Sophie will have her glasses by Friday!

Hugs, Shana :)

Sharie said...

I love the dress! I was just about to ask you where you found it, but you already answered that! I can't wait to see Miss Sophie in her glasses. She's going to look like a movie star. Well, Movie Star Fi, to be exact. :-)

Laurie said...

GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGOUS!!! Those look fabulous. I soooo need to go take some pics of my kids. You inspire me. For a long time now.

As I was looking at the pics I was wondering if you got a new camera?

I hope Sophie's glasses come in soon. I can't wait to hear her reaction to her new outlook.

Shauna said...

How beautiful! It's so refreshing to see a kid just being a kid and playing on the beach :) You should get the 7th and 14th pictures framed, they are so pretty!
I can't wait to see her in her cute new glasses.

My favorites pictures of model Sophie Lu SO FAR.... :)

May said...

So cute. My 4 year old daughter wears glasses and when I told her that the "girl from the cooking show" was getting glasses too, she said, "Really? Can I see them?" She'll likely need a new pair next month so she'd like to see what Stylish Sophie picked out!

poody said...

Oh Love the dress my favorite color! She is as always adorable!

Kaili said...

Adorable!

Salome's Mom said...

I am speechless, she is just luminous.

carrie said...

They are all so beautiful, how could you ever choose just one?

I am sure Sophie's new glasses will be very becomming on her.

Kathryn said...

I have been reading your blog for awhile now and always enjoy the beautiful pictures of your children. While I wait endlessly to one day meet my daughter I follow those of you who have been there and dream of things to come.

Your daughter gets more and more beautiful by the day! She is absolutely adorable! I cannot wait to see her in her new glasses.

Sophie Lu makes a great subject (:

Heza Hekele said...

I love the sailor outfit! Your photography, once again, is beautiful!

It's a wonderful thing that you caught Sophie's eyesight issues before she started school...

My mom, who is legally blind without her glasses or contacts, entered school and did HORRIBLY for two or three years before someone thought to check her eyesight! By the time the problem was discovered (early 60's) the emotional and academic trauma, from not being able to see, and not knowing why she was "different" had already been done!

The happy ending is that she has always been able to see just fine with her glasses and has led a perfectly normal life! (Career as a Nurse, raised five kids, drives, etc.) Just don't ask her to identify who is standing in front of her face once she takes her contacts out for the night...

Carrie Yang said...

Beautiful pictures and I love the outfit!!!

Galen said...

What happens when you type "Sophie Lu" into Google. Her site link comes up, listed first. Like Madonna, no last name needed. Cool.

Cual es su nombre? Sophie Lu.

Ryan and Heather said...

she has SUCH a personality! Sophie is going to be something big in this world someday ( I know she's already touched MANY lives with that beautiful smile!)

I haven't been to your site in so long and my oh my how Sophie has grown up! She is beautiful! I had to get glasses when I was really young too, I have really bad vision 20/700 and have worn glasses/contacts for years. I am planning on Lasik surgery next year, would that be something that would help Sophie? I am sure she will look adorable in her glasses and hopefully her eyes will start to adjust themselves.

Robin said...

Hello! I'm hoping everything is okay...since you haven't posted in a while. I can't wait to see how beautiful Sophie looks in her new glasses!!!

Thinking of you guys. I hope all is just wonderful and Sophie is adjusting to her new glasses already. I can imagine Ollie trying to get them off of her face and wear them himself. LOL
