Would you just look at how adorable and happy this baby girl is?? She is a tiny model in the making. She always delivers an amazing performance and beautiful images. It was another joyous 1st birthday celebration and I am thrilled with how it turned out. I know, as a parent myself, that sometimes we can feel like our children are so grown up at one year old, but looking back on one year images will always remind us of how little they really were. Life passes at such a fast rate and I know each client is grateful to have beautiful images to look back on and remember these precious moments.

YOU GUYS. Can you even stand that first image? Seriously. These are some sweet sweet sisters, I tell you what. I love their love for one another. They are so fortunate to have this bond, which I hope they will share for a lifetime. This location provided some gorgeous backdrops and fabulous fall-ish light for our session. On top of that, this crew is always dressed so well. That being said, I can only take some of the credit for how well these turned out. 😉 It’s helpful when all the elements come together. Each year this mom and I agree that this is “the best session yet” and then the next year somehow manages to tops it. I already look forward to whatever we will come up with next year!

This Mama does something every year that I just love. She has me take some pictures of her kids in their karate/gymnastics/baseball uniforms, or whatever they may be in to that year. That just happened to be the combo this year, but in the past I have done images with someone playing a guitar, someone in ballet clothes, and the list goes on and on. It’s just such a cute idea! It’s a nice way to capture those fun stages that each child is in, and to be able to look back and see how their interests have either changed, or stayed the same. Kuddos, Mama and thanks for continuing to make the eight hour drive to use me as your photographer. I can’t imagine not seeing y’all each year!

This always happens. You blink, and your baby is turning one. (Or 11! Or 5! Or 30!) Life seems to go by quickly, huh folks? This kid is adorable. You may recognize him from his 6 month session that appeared on the blog not too long ago. As I shared then, his beautiful Mama calls him Porkchop, and we think it’s just hilarious!  I always have a ball with this family- and there are never any dull moments. That’s how life is with three young kids, right? Luckily they have a wonderful Mama and Daddy who are patient and have a great sense of humor. These kids are very fortunate to have some lovely grandparents both near and far! For this session we were able to include one set of grandparents. Making it a very, very special session indeed! 2014-10-15_0014 2014-10-15_0011 2014-10-15_0012 2014-10-15_0010
