DILT – Ice Cream Cones

Ice cream + hot evenings + new dresses.

This is a combination that makes most of us moms flinch but just once, I decided to let go and the littles have at it. Heck, I honestly encouraged the messiness a little bit (not that they needed much help).

Sometimes, I try to get out of my children’s way of being a child and let them have messy, playful, sometimes disastrous fun. It’s so easy to want the perfection, push for it in fact, that sometimes we forget to just.. STOP. Stop and enjoy the mess, the innocence, the purity, the childhood.

So that’s what I did. And based on the photos below, I think it worked out well. See for yourself.

And yes, the white dress is stained.

Hi, I'm Emily. I'm a St. Louis Family and Lifestyle Photographer and this is my blog!  

As a busy mother of 2, I know how quickly time can slip through your fingers. Being able to take the most simple and precious moments in my daughters’ lives and turn them into art that our family can admire forever has been a wonderful experience. The best part about it? I can do the same for you.
