Hudson is ONE! From his gorgeous in-home session all the way through his 3 months, Sitter session (6-7 months), 9 months, AND 1 Year Session, this little man has been a pure JOY! He is one from my first round of First Year Plans ever, and let me tell you, its the pure joy that I get from getting to know these sweet babies and their families that makes me continue with my First Year Plans! Hudson is a doll! He can light up a room with his smile and those pretty eyes! Happy birthday, little man!

Charlie is ONE! I just adore that sweet little smile. Charlie is one of my First Year Plan clients, and I can remember taking his photos when he was just born. I'm so happy that I had the opportunity to see him grow into this sweet little boy of the course of the past year! You're awesome, Charlie! 

Jericho Lee's 1 Year Cake Smash

Jericho Lee's 1 Year Cake Smash

I cannot believe that I am even typing this right now. My child is almost ONE! You know, people tell you and tell you that it will FLY by, but you never really know until you're there, and it's happening. A lot has happened in this first year of Jericho Lee's life. My father passed away, but he got to meet his first grand baby, stayed in the hospital all night waiting for his arrival. Then, I was on maternity leave for a semester, so I started booking more photos than I ever allowed myself. And then I went back to teaching where I decided it was time to be a full-time photographer. None of the events in Jericho's first year were planned. Everything I have done has been for him, and besides all of that, amongst the joy and the tragedy, here is a little boy whose life has truly changed those around him in just one short year.
