Dahling, you look mahvelous

This was my third visit with Ms. C - we first met when she was just a little newborn, and then I got to come back and see her when she was a beautiful chubby six month old. Now she's a big girl turning one, and she was hilarious. I loved getting a chance to see her again!

Her mama had to answer a phone call during the shoot, and while she was gone, Ms. C got into a bit of mischief. First she discovered the sunglasses... and like a good girl, made the attempt to give them back to mama...


When she realized she'd get a bit of time to play with them, she was thrilled. Look at her, devising her plan for the glasses...


And here she gives the grownup on-the-head look a try. Dahling, they're perfect on you. Don't change a thing ;)


She continues to rock the fabulous eyelashes, and smile her gorgeous smile:


Even taking a moment or to with calm consideration of "hmmm... who is this person, and why is she taking my picture?"


Then we went upstairs to her room, and I love the girlie accents throughout this shot. The tutu on the door, the b&w's framed from previous shoots (love it). Up here she introduced me to her beloved BunBun.


Showed me the proper way to give him kisses:


And believe it or not, took steps through the room! She'd only just started doing this last week when I was there, so she was still doing what her mom called her "Frankenstein" walk - it's such a perfect description of it...


Had to capture those wrist rolls - one of my favorite things in the world.


And this expression, last but not least, cracks me up. Her family calls this her angry face. I just think it's adorable.
"Are you looking at my tush?"

All that's missing from the shot of her gazing is one of Mommy's lipsticks in her hand. What an adorable roly poly (sp?)
