A Backyard Orchard Afternoon with Q & M

They don’t get much cuter than this. Unless they run at you screaming AUNTIE JILLIAN!!!! (a recurring theme with the children of my best friends in Australia which I now can’t imagine going a day without).

Here’s an afternoon with M, silly and theatrical and just as pretty as the first and second time I photographed her and the newest little Q, beautiful and lovely to be around. I could have followed them around all day in the 106* heat, M thrilled in a party dress and insisting on pink bowed pigtails and Q curious about every inch of their backyard garden. As a bonus I was able to spend some time with R & D who have managed to stay good friends despite having hands full of little girls. If only Australia was around the corner…
