She was one of my first official clients. I photographed her as a belly-bump, and I’m pretty sure she was my first newborn session after officially starting my business. You’ve heard the phrases: “Tiny but Mighty!” and “She may be small, but she’s fierce!” They may not have been coined specifically for her, but they could have been. At 3 years old, my little friend has endured more than most adults between surgeries and therapies. She is smart, she is funny, and she is a fighter. I count it such a privilege that I have been able to watch her grow through my lens. And yes, her cuteness level is off-the-charts!
To see all of her sweet expressions, there were hats, silly music and cheerio bribes. She put Nana, mom and I all to work, and it was definitely all worth it to get these images. Can you even get over her preciousness?
This fun little girl is the absolute best “snuggler”. I didn’t mind a bit getting extra hugs at her session, even though they started to make me laugh. (She knew if I was getting snuggles I couldn’t take her picture, so she was pulling out the charm.)
She has a beautiful momma and Nana, so it was awesome to do a little “generations” shot at the end. This one was my favorite, because there is actually a cheerio tucked between her lips. Yes, I actually could have edited it out, but it’s part of the memory. As a mom, I know that in years to come her personality at this stage of life is what they want to remember… the little moments…Cheerios and all.
