Charlotte is One! – Child Photographer – Alliance, OH

It is hard to believe that our daughter Charlotte is almost one already! She is such a blessing and a joy to our family. She was well received by her three year old brother Liam. He has loved her from day one. And now that she is older, he enjoys caring for her, playing with her and occasionally bossing her around. :-) She started out as an observer in the family, but now she has a personality all of her own. She is opinionated, very independent and quite a ham. She enjoys having you around but she would rather play by herself. She has many favorites:

Her Favorite Book: Baby Animals Sounds

Her Favorite Toy: Red Flyer scooter

Her Favorite Food: Waffles

Her Favorite Things to do: Reading with Mommy and splash in the pool.

Her Favorite Activities: Playing outside and at the park with her brother.

Here is a comparison photo of Charlotte at one week and almost one year.

Anyone who knows Charlotte knows that she favors her tongue.  In fact, it is very hard to get a photo of her without her tongue sticking out. She has done this since the day she was born. So because this is just a part of who our little Charlotte is, I decide to just go with it as you will notice through the rest of the session.  😉

Week 28-4

While cleaning up dishes I found these two team working toddlers in the bathroom together. Charlotte had pushed the stool up to the open drawer was emptying it’s contents into the sink where her brother was sitting on the counter washing everything. Thankfully it was just hairbrushes and hair ties.

Week 28-6

Charlotte loves this Red Flyer scooter. She can go forward and backwards and can even get off and on it all by herself!

Week 28-2

Charlotte’s favorite thing to do at the park is to climb up the slides backwards. She can climb even the very tallest slides all by herself!

Week 28-1

Week 28-5

Liam really enjoys playing with Charlotte but especially outside. This photo and the one below are his two current favorite activities with her. The love each other so much. It is so precious.

This photo will soon be memorable being that we just sold our 1979 vintage moped. Maybe Liam will have a moped of his own when he is a teenager. :-)

Carrie’s Senior Photo Session – Glamorgan Castle in Alliance, OH – Senior Photographer

 

 

 

This gorgeous girl is Carrie. She is the sweetest thing from and even sweeter family. Carrie is the third senior I have photographed from this family. We chose the Glamorgan Castle in Alliance, Ohio for our session location. We got lucky and it was an absolutely gorgeous evening. It felt more like September rather than July which worked out perfectly with one of her outfit choices. And at the end of the session we photographed her in her prom dress which was a fantastic idea! The color of the dress worked perfectly with the granite castle stones. This is one of my favorite senior session to date! It was so much fun.

Week 26

Week 26

Week 26-1

I walked out of the bathroom and found these two playing together. I love seeing Liam and Charlotte bond and enjoy each other’s company.

Week 26-4

Liam was all about the fireworks this year! Morning Glories were his favorite. And check out those tiger jammies!

Week 26-3

We had such a nice time with my husband’s family in Indianapolis over the 4th. Here is Adam’s brothers playing corn hole while my family watches in the background. (Actually Charlotte is eating her dinner rather than watching).

Week 26-2

Liam is the oldest cousin on my side of the family. It is so different when we visit Adam’s family because he has three older cousins. Liam (3 years old) and Justice (5 years old) were pretty much inseparable the whole trip. Here they are watching the Hughes Family Annual Fishing Competition.

Week 26-5

We were invited to a private ski show at Lake Mohawk over the 4th. But all Charlotte was interested in was Aunt Marissa’s patriotic nails.

Week 26-6

We left early in the morning and drove two hours south to Beallsville, OH to visit family who were in from FL. The first thing we did was take a short hike beneath my grandparent’s cabin to see the falls. It was overcast but I still snapped a few pictures. Then, just as we were getting ready to leave the clouds opened up and the sun rays came through the trees. I asked Liam to go stand in the sunlight and throw in a few rocks. But instead he decided to do this! I love what a special age he is right now. He isn’t self conscience and just enjoys every moment of his carefree childhood.  And he could care less that his Mommy is always pointing a camera at him. I am definitely treasuring these days.
