13 Times I Captured Pure Joy on My Daughter’s Face

One of my favorite things to do is look back through old photos.

As the years go on, you tend to forget all the moments of happiness, joy, and love you’ve experienced.

I have a ton of pics of my daughter, Kendall. Sprinkled throughout all those pics are numerous expressions. I love them all for different reasons.

But the expression I gravitate to the most is her look of pure joy, probably because nine times out of ten she clams up when the camera comes out. Stinker…  🙂

Anyway, here are 13 very special moments I was lucky enough to capture on camera.

With each of these, I can remember exactly where we were and what we were doing. That’s the gift that photography gives us. Enjoy!

First smile
First time in a real swing
Crazy hair, don’t care!
Yay blocks!
I’m flying!
Sledding…woo hoo!
My Easter basket is HUGE!


There’s a big giggle behind those hands!
Waterpark fun
Who doesn’t love a foam party?!
And most recently…the time she photo bombed me while taking pics for an upcoming blog post! 🙂
