~ Harper is ONE! ~

I became this wonderful family's photographer about 2 years ago when I photographed big sister Madi's picnic themed cake smash session.    When her mommy sent me pictures of the adorable invitation and outfits and props she'd purchased I knew right away she had awesome taste.     Since that session, I have been lucky enough to do 4 other sessions for them and meet so many great members of their welcoming family.    My favorite, though I loved them all, was Harper's newborn session where she slept like a dream and allowed us to fit in all of our ideas!     Some of my favorite portraits of all time are from that session.    It was hard to believe how fast a year flew and we were scheduling Harper's first birthday pictures and planning glitter, gold and pink galore!     I was forewarned that no longer was Harper the sleeping laid back happy girl she was at her newborn session, but we still managed to sneak some precious smiles...and the crying picture at the end has its own adorableness anyway.   Although it doesn't hold a smile, I have a sneaking suspicion in will bring many smiles as they look back and reminisce over it in the years to come :)     I feel so lucky to watch this family grow and change and always have fun in their presence!
