Happy One Year Birthday Baby Girl!

Summertime in Arizona can make even the most enthusiastic, photo happy people wilt and wither, under the glaring, afternoon sun. Evenings can work, but really, mornings are best.

Luckily, as those of us with kids are very much aware, little ones tend not to respect morning boundaries. And if you have a one year old, the notion of meeting me for photos at 6AM isn’t all that strange. For those of you without kids,  give it time.

While it was probably still warm by the thermometer, we certainly didn’t feel it and nobody looked it. This sweet, baby girl had a great time, she’s been a natural, ever since she was even a littler baby girl, when we spent a morning getting all sorts of baby photos.  I loved every minute I spent with this wonderful family!

  • Jane Corkum - Good morning!
    I know I’ve already emailed you a note when the photos first arrived, but I look at these photos every day multiple times and just smile. The outfits, the little shoes, the happiness that is on all of your faces – sheer delight! Such a happy little girl — who you can tell just adores her parents! And she is precious beyond words. You all are.
    Much love,
    Mom/Grammie Jane
