A storybook session


A little bit about today’s post…

I am enthralled by storybook sessions – I stalk the photographers who post them and anxiously await the next session. Most of the time these sessions are for girls though and when my little boy discovered The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams and asked to read it over and over again, I thought this would be the perfect story for him. And he was so funny doing this… aside from getting play with a real rabbit, he especially loved the part when he was supposed to “play sick”. He really hammed that up. And y’all thought my little girl was the ham in the family…


“There was once a beautiful Velveteen Rabbit…”
