A little over a year ago, I met and photographed Abigail. I was struck by her beauty! Big brown eyes, pudgy cheeks and a pretty pink tutu that her Mommy had made. Do you remember her?
Last week I got to meet her again. Not much has changed, yet so much has changed! She's still beautiful with big, dark eyes, but now she is very mobile! She is a serious little girl, and seriously adventurous too! She loves to climb, go up and down steps, and once she saw the pond, it was all over. She was sure she had come here just to go swimming!
Here is Abigail now at just over a year and a half!
There was a train going by. She loves trains and was walking over to take a look. We could only see just a little bit of it through the trees, but she was excited to see it.
Tickles from Mom and Dad to elicit a few more smiles.
Still getting warmed up to the idea of some strange lady taking her picture.
Now the fun begins! She found something she could climb up on. Then down. And then up.
Then, of course, back down.
Still wanting to climb, but she held on for one family photo on the bench. Abigail was slowed down for a few poses on the rock. A little too much of a challenge for even her climbing skills!
A bridge at the park proved to be another favorite for Abigail! In the photo on the right, her mom was singing to her and she was trying hard not to join in. Still trying not to sing, but the tune is rather catchy! (If you're happy and you know it...)Finally, she just could not contain herself any longer. She had to join in!
Yeah for Abigail! One final smile for the day.
Gen and Jeff, Thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph Abigail again. She is so precious! It was such fun to see you all again and to play with Abigail at the park. I loved watching her explore and seeing her personality emerging.
Yes this is my second post today but I've got to get this precious little girl up here for her Mommy to see!
When I first met little Rosie on Saturday she was all about her shoes! They were the first things she showed me when I said hello and she pointed them out often during our time together. As you can see, she is a doll! She was amazed by everything around her and would breath in in surprise with every flash of my camera or every new trick we tried or every new toy pulled out. It seemed to be her m o for the day! I did manage to capture a few smiles, but with her beautiful blue eyes, and her wonderful chubby cheeks, pretty much every expression she gave made my heart say "Aww".
I am a little behind in posting these. Almost 2 weeks ago now I met the Martin family at the park. We couldn't have asked for better weather! And the fall colors were at their peak and stunning! The children's smiles were stunning too and they just kept coming from all 3 of the children.
These family pictures on the rock are my favorites of the family.
Such a sweet little guy and so happy to be on the move!
Kristin knew just how and when to turn on the beautiful smile of hers. Hannah, looking grown up and beautiful. Sisters! A couple more of Hannah exploring the park.
Love how Kristin is folding her hands in this.
The close up has got to be my favorite of these 2.
