This little girl is the daughter I never had. She is actually the daughter of one of my good friends but I get to keep her several days a week so I consider her part mine too. I have photographed her mom’s maternity session, her first hospital pictures, her official newborn session and her at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and now one year old. I have loved watching her grow and getting to snuggle her and I can’t wait (I take that back there is no hurry) to watch her grow and blossom into the beautiful person she is going to be. She is such a calm easy kid most of the time. My youngest son Deegan loves to cuddle her and always asks if she is coming over.
For her one year session we drove up to Golden Gate Canyon State park to try to find some colorful trees for a background. Luckily we found a patch of aspens that were still hanging on to their leaves. It was a little bit chilly up there so we wrapped her in a fluffy warm blanket to keep her happy and warm.
