I've known this little lady since her tiny newborn days. She is exactly 5 weeks older than my own little man which made attending and photographing her special day all the more nostalgic for me. Turning one has been a big deal in my head and I knew that I would soon be in the same place as her momma! I LOVE these opportunities to step into someone else's family and life in order to give the gift of documenting their special moments. I believe that it is pictures like these, that years down the road, will allow us to step back into that moment and sit with the memories; like sitting with an friend over a cup tea and starting right back where you left off, even though too many years have passed. This sweet little lady was so vibrant and joyful on her special day! She and her momma are a delight to know and I'm honored to call them friends.
