Caroline turns ONE!

January 28, 2011
Last weekend, I met up with one of my favorite families (well favorite families to photograph) to celebrate Caroline’s 1st Birthday. You may remember Caroline from a session I did last fall (click HERE) – it was during that session that Miss Caroline started crawling. To be completely honest, Caroline wasn’t feeling her absolute best last Saturday…but you would never know by these pictures.

Before I get into today’s post, I just want to send out a huge thank you and hug to everyone who follows my blog – as it appears, there are over 1000 of you guys now.  WOW and thank you! I continue to be inspired by each of you and I look forward to another year of photography…and another year of learning in community together. With that said, we’ll go back to your previously scheduled ramblings. On Tuesday, I shared with you the Christmas present that we gave Carter – the Chicken Dance Elmo. It was a huge hit…for all of 5-10 minutes. Why? Because he is...
