I have been photographing this gorgeous girl since we met when she was about 7 months old. Back then I was doing a lot of free shoots for Etsy shops, and her mom volunteered her to be one of my models. She and my daughter hit it off right away. I have since photographed her every year for her birthday – it has been so amazing watching her grow, and seeing my work grow along with her. Each year we pick sort of a different theme, and this year we took advantage of the gorgeous town we live in, before we did a “trash the dress” type thing down at a nearby creek. The other thing you’ll notice is the shower cap – mom & dad had her photographed in that for her newborn photos, and have continued the tradition every year! Check out those piercing blue eyes – what a gorgeous girl.
