A tutu, a pond, and a girl and her mama

This beauty I met when she was mere weeks old, and now she's a big girl of three. Here she is, falling into a bowl. Hehe.

In her tutu, showing me her spinning top:

Isn't she lovely?

We went for a little ride around the corner on her tricycle:

Then, you can only imagine my glee when we went across the street to a beautiful little pond... too many sweet moments to even post:

We got this one with the two of them in focus instead of the flower, too, but I much prefer this one. My assistant just looked over my shoulder and called it "fairy tale-ish". Definitely.

A hug on the dock:

I just have such fun with this little lady, I'm sad every year when the shoot's over!

And my favorite part about this one is mom's hand in the edge of the frame. Um, that spot for lying down? Ummmm... making everybody nervous... I almost couldn't take the picture. But I did ;) So much fun as always!

Nothing is more beautiful than seeing
a mother/ daughter spending quality
time together! great pictures you took of them together and the beautiful child by herself! the
mother has passed on her natural
beauty to her daughter! they picked
a wonderful photographer!

Gramma Shannie (the mom of the mom) is brought to tears every year by the beauty of my family that you manage to capture with your photography. Thank you! And (that photo lying on the dock) you not only captured the love of nature that the little one has, but the trust that exists between them -- you make emotions and love so palpable.

Love that first one!

Beautiful pictures! I started following your blog last year after A's mom showed me her two year old shoot. All of your sessions are gorgeous but it is especially nice to see pictures of a kiddo that I know. My favorite is number 3. So calm and serious and thinking...just beautiful :)
