when starting this business i never really took the time to think about the details. i never took the time to think about all of the other wonderful things that would come along with this awesome journey. i was definitely excited to meet new people but never realized the relationships and friends i would form along the way.
last weekend i photographed a very special little girl. i met bailey back in october of last year. she was 4 months old. her parents brought her to my first fall/halloween mini session. bailey came with her cousin, kendall who i photographed a few months before. these two sweet little girls are 3 months apart. i can already see it… laughing together, getting in trouble, staying out late together, covering for each other. i could go on but i want to photograph them again… i am sure they will grow up to be perfect little angels.
i feel apart of this family. i love it! they ask about my children, offer me drinks and food, joke around with me like i am truly apart of the family. it means the world to me to have met these guys! not to mention, i get to see their beautiful girls grow up.
the day was perfect. the sun was right where i wanted it to be. bailey, well she was a ROCK STAR. it was almost like she knew momma wanted some pictures and this birthday was going down in the books! you only turn ONE once, right?!?
bailey was amazing, not once getting overwhelmed or cranky. she just took it all in.. smiling and looking around.
look who’s almost walking…
her friend showed up that she didn’t think was coming! ha!
it truly is magical to have all of the family come together to one place and knowing that every single one of them loves, bailey. i know i’m the photographer but i can’t help but sit back and watch. it was a celebration… they made sure of it!
one of my favorites.
this girl swings… she sits in the big girl swing and holds on with all of her might… daddy pushes her and her smile goes from one ear to the next… kicking her legs like she knows that she can go faster. i sat there shooting away.. laughing and smiling… it’s the simple things people. the simple things.
its not a party without birthday cake!
kendall wanted to help…
i wonder what they were talking about. i’m sure it was some secret 1 year old code.
it was a great time by all!
i wonder if momma knew that she was going to do a ladybug theme back in October?
happy birthday sweet bailey! until next time…
