To start off the day this morning. This sweet one-year-old was beyond a joy to photograph. Her smile was just infectious. I love this stage....not all baby....but not yet big kid. Crawling...walking...crawling...walking. As a mother, I am thrilled to have been able to freeze this time for my client.
I remember all too well when we were at this stage. I was thinking I still had a baby...but then looking across the table one night at supper, I realized I was wrong. We were eating in a restaurant and my kids were each sitting coloring QUIETLY and everything seemed peaceful and happy. (I should have known at that point that this was to be a magical night.) After our food came, I glanced over to see how the baby was doing. And there was my baby, Kennedy, eating steak and spreading butter on bread while sipping on a glass of Merlot. Ok, it wasn't Merlot, but the rest of it is true. And at that moment, not only did I realize that she was no longer a baby, but I realized that time flies more quickly every year that goes by. I got my camera out the next day and took some pictures, because it smacked me in the face how I was going to BLINK and she was going to be in college.
These moments are fleeting.
And maybe can I get a collective "awwww....." over the way her finger is curled around her nose??
Can you just imagine her squeals of joy as her momma tosses her into the air? Just remembering that sound that day brings a smile to my face.
Coming soon: the long awaited session I'm dying to share with you from one of my favorite clients/friends....Dr. Jennifer from New Hampshire!!!
Much love to you all.
