Charlotte Turns ONE 02.18.12

I recently had the chance to do another session for my beautiful friend and sorority sister Sarah, her husband Paul, and their darling daughter Charlotte, who had just turned ONE! Our session couldn't have gone better. First of all, it was a really warm day at the end of January with lots of sunshine. That made everyone happy. Especially Charlotte! She was ALL SMILES. The first time I photographed her, she was in a "serious mood", and this time -- she just couldn't stop giggling and clapping. Even with no nap! Here are just a few favorites as I'm finishing their whole gallery. Enjoy!

This is gorgeous little Charlotte at 7 months over the summer.

And this is her at age ONE. Look at that smile, and those curls!

And look where she gets them. So so pretty.

As usual, we started with some relaxed portraits. I love a classic photo like this of a Dad with his daughter. One he can proudly display at work.

Such a beautiful family! To my surprise, our session took place on Sarah's birthday.

Paul, thank you for getting your wife a gift she will truly cherish forever. Sarah, how is it that you are even more gorgeous than in college?!!?

Next I focused on the other birthday girl. Such a beauty.

We got lots of portraits...

And then what I like to call "baby details" her curly hair coming in...

Her clapping...(those dimply knuckles give me the warm fuzzies!)...

Her eyelashes...

And her boots. Love this.

Later we took her to see the water...

And then to play on the swing.

It was her VERY first time on a swing, and she absolutely loved it!

Sarah and Paul, thank you so much for asking me to take photos for you as Charlotte grows. I hope you love the little preview as much as I do. Hugs! ~Kris
