my baby turned one and this is what it looked like...

hello, hello, hello!  my baby is feeling so much better...thank you so much for checking in!

i am so thrilled to share this little photo session with you.  my baby turned 1 and i needed to capture this magical time since it is slipping by so, so quickly and of course we couldn't put a camera in front of lu without including her favorite person in the whole world my b.  i couldn't think of a more amazingly talented gal for the job than ms. heaven mcarther of green chair studio.  i knew her camera would grab hold of the magic of this age, but i was blown away...far away.  she managed to capture in a photo what i am lucky enough to see everyday.  when my current everyday is gone, and age 1 and 6 pass, i will have these photos, my babies will always be babies in these pictures and i am forever grateful.  

I have just gotten to the point where i can peruse without tears...

never mind...sniff, sniff...the tears are still a coming.  i love you ms. heaven, you are magic.

ok. i thought the apple pics were perfection. until i saw the CUPCAKE ONES! and the ones with B! i'm tempted to just fill this box with a million exclamation points. instead, i'm going back to look at those two perfect faces again.

well done. blow these pictures up life-sized and wallpaper your house with them. just a thought.

Oh god....I started getting tears in my eyes even BEFORE I looked at the photos! Knowing so clearly what you mean about capturing this moment in time ( for me, before 5 and 10 pass us by) ( weep, sniff) These photos are MAGIC. And your two little beauties are magical as well, my friend. Those big beautiful eyes, creamy skin and sweet, SWEET little souls radiating out from behind those beautiful eyes. And their SMILES!! Fuggit' about it. I am done. I LOVE these so much. So happy you have them forever and forever.
