It’s funny how life brings us full circle. I’ve recently had a boom in photographing my high school friends, classmates, and even just my old high school peers. I’m just loving it!
This adorable little tike just turned one this summer. Her mom, Christina, and I go way back to our track days. Last year I photographed Christina’s pretty belly and then soon after Marina as a newborn. Now, I am tickled pink that I was able to capture Marina’s first year session. It’s when families choose me to photograph the milestones, important celebrations and annual family photos that bring me so much joy. I love witnessing families grow, especially those that I’ve had a strong connection with in the past, like with Christina.
When Christina came to me with her session ideas I was floored. I mean I’ve pretty much seen and done it all when it comes to birthday themes, except for this one. She mentioned that this was her “first rodeo” so she needed a little help as to what to bring fro the session, but she knew that there was going to be lots of yellows and pops of red for Marina’s …(wait for it) Cheerios theme! Gahh. So cute and yet so unique. Right away she explained how Marina loves to eat Cheerios so that was it. I gave her a mental high-five and told her I couldn’t wait. The session was too cute for words with Marina’s adorable smiles and all! Happy birthday pretty baby girl!
