Sweet, sweet Emma. Emma was my first real “shoot” 3 years ago when I was just testing out this photography thing. Her Mama trusted me with images from the newborn stage, and here we are, three years later, capturing more beautiful moments. Its enough to make you want to shout, “STOP! Stop growing up! Stop getting bigger!”
I have to share with you Emma’s Mama’s request for this shoot: “I would like nice photos that capture Emma as she is right now…I feel like time is going by waaaay too fast, and I want to remember every detail of her crooked toes, chubby fingers, cankles, smile, blond hair, carefree attitude.” We had a delightful evening just letting Emma be Emma. 🙂
The sweetness, the naturalness of these photos are definitely some of my absolute favorite to date. Emma is one of the “gauges” of my own personal growth as a photographer, I’m thankful that she’s such a willing participant. 🙂
Happy Birthday, Sweet Girl!
