Friday's Favorite Family Foto - Natalie Pearl!

Pictures, Pots, Pens , hosts Friday's Favorite Family Foto. I am participating for the first time this week and I hope you enjoy my photos.... Please add a comment below my posting, so I know you have stopped by! And, drop by Deborah's blog and see what family photos she and others have posted!

This is Natalie Pearl, my Wisconsin grand daughter, a few years back. Her parents have always taken great care in surrounding her with a lot of good stimulation; she is very intently focused on her bright colored toys! She has been growing into an adorably cute little girl, and is very bright herself, to the delight of everyone who has the opportunity to meet her.

Her mom has a natural talent for decorating, and created a fish-themed room from a sample she saw at a store. Natalie's middle name was chosen to honor my mother, Pearl, and mom was so pleased and surprised when she found out! As Natalie has been growing,she has quite the head of curls, just like my mom did when she was a small child.

The photo to the right is a favorite of nearly
every-one who has seen it! It's a picture of Natalie with my welsh
corgi puppy, Dixie Doodles. I was encouraged to send this image to the Radio Flyer company to see if they would like to use it in the ads for their wagons! Unfortunately, as I soon found out, the company only uses the children of their own employees to promote their product, however they would love to see pictures of kids enjoying their toys. Too bad - but I tried! This little girl will need a college education all too soon, and we had hopes it might be funded, in part, through some photo shoots!

In looking at the picture to the left, it's not hard to imagine how she will look on her graduation day - even at ballet classes or at play, she sometimes appears so grown up! Natalie is a very active little girl and enjoys posing for the camera. Don't you think she would make a great model?
The last picture is of her parents, my son Sean, and his wife Katie. It was taken late last year and has been added to all of our family photo collections. They also have a son, Nolan, who will be celebrating his first birthday soon. I'll share photos of Nolan another Friday!

Thanks for visiting!

ADORABLE!! Where did she get the headful of beautiful curly locks?
I would think any company would want that little darling in their ad.

Love her name, too!

Welcome to our group and thank you for sharing this little cutie with us!

Aww, she is precious. Love her curls and I bet she would make a great model. I sent some pictures of Keifer his Senior year to Abercrombie,and they wanted him for a model, but he had to go to the local Store and apply, when he found out what I'd said thanks but NO THANKS.
Welcome to the FFF.

Natalie Pearl is a beautiful little girl. I love your photos and of course my favorite is Natalie with the puppy. Her parents are lovely and it sounds like they are working very hard to raise Natalie with love and direction.

A beautiful post today.
