Beehive Photoshoot

For our YW activity last week we had a photoshoot for my cute Beehives. They were told that they could dress however they wanted and bring whatever props they wanted. No one really brought props which surprised me, but it was sure funny to see them all lip glossing and fluffing their hair during opening exercises :) The Mia Maid advisor asked what we were doing and when she found out she said, "Well I was wondering why they were all primping!" I've never thought of my girls to be really prissy...definitely DARLING...so it was funny to see them all nervous about these pictures! After their pictures we played on a park nearby and they didn't want me to stop taking pictures...such nerds doing the strangest poses, but they are so fun. I loved the opportunity that I had to tell each of them how beautiful they were when they would say things about not being "pretty" enough for a picture. These girls have no idea how beautiful they are inside and out. I'm so lucky to get to work with them. After the activity we went for ice cream at Artic Circle where I made them all promise to be calm and they then referred to me as "mom" the entire time we were there. My heart was so happy when they all kept telling me this was one of the most fun activities they had ever had. And how simple was it? Just me getting to play with my camera...I had been thinking all along it was more of an activity for me!

A couple of people have asked to see more than just their daughters pictures so I'm posting some here. Enjoy!

You should do a YW Values photoshoot like the Ankeny 1st Ward - turned out ultra cute!
