…that is just what sweet Marissa did for me today-sleep. When I first arrived and her Mom told me she was a pretty good sleeper and that was pretty much “how she rolled”, I figured that would immediately jinx us for a wide awake baby, but nope. She slept. I should have known Mom would be right!
I had photographed big sister Gianna in summer of 2009 when she was one year old. She’s a gorgeous little girl, and my how she had changed! It’s amazing. Something happens after kiddos turn two. About halfway through that year they become…well, kids and not toddlers. Their limbs lengthen, their hair is longer, their vocabulary is astounding! Gianna was no exception, and that is hands down my favorite part of this job. Well, that and snuggling sweet, new, little babies who are only still measuring their lives in days and weeks. I got to do BOTH today, so it was a great morning. My favorite from the session is definitely Gianna peeking down at her new baby sister in the baby bed. Love it.
Thanks for having me over to capture this fleeting moment in your lives. It goes so fast. As I type this we are all about to greet 2011 with open arms. I took a special picture of Marissa for that, but you have to wait until tomorrow!
