In the blink of an eye, a year went by.
And this might make her mama cry:
Now she has hair with style and eyes that smile.
And painted toenails every once in a while.
She said goodbye to crawling,
because she was too busy talling.
A wee bit of whining got her eyelashes shining:
But, we got rid of her troubles
with a few tiny bubbles:
Eyes that shine, a mouth full of teeth…
and a pretty headband, with some curls right beneath:
Is she still a baby? You won’t have to guess.
Her cheeks scream the answer,
….the answer is YES:
So slow down the growing, you sweet Little Miss,
Because big baby cheeks are so fun to kiss:
To her mama: Thank you, thank you, thank you for the surprise you brought me. As I said, that wasn’t necessary- I already liked you. You are so fun to be around. To her daddy: It was so great to meet you and I’m glad you were able to make it to this session. I’m also glad you laughed at my jokes. Thanks so much for bringing your sweet baby girl in for another session. I hope you love these previews as much as we all love your baby’s beautiful face. The rest will be finished soon!

Just look at this face… so still and calm.
Ah, but you have been FOOLED, my friend!
Chick was all over the place.
I almost fell over with surprise when she RAN into my studio upon her arrival.
The babies I photograph don’t typically do that. (If you were anywhere on Main Street, you probably heard my reaction.)
Did you know I have the unique ability to read babies’ expressions?
For example, in this next photo, she’s saying, “You’re crazy if you think I’m staying on this suitcase.”
Oh, Sweet Speedy… it’s ON!
You may be quick, but my camera is quicker.
And, I’m glad.
Because even though you’re running around like a kid… your hand still looks like baby:
And your rosebud lips beneath each pretty lash?
Please don’t be so quick to dash.
This next expression says, “Keri’s camera really IS quicker than me.”
Yes, Sweet Speedy. You put up a good fight, but I always win the war.
Those blue eyes, those new teeth… Miss Speedy sure is sweet.
To her parents: Not to freak you out or anything, but you MAY have to get a leash for this one. She has officially won the award for quickest baby in the history of my studio. She should get into running track. And, I’m not talking about the future, I’m talking about now. I have really enjoyed getting to know your sweet family as I photographed both your sweet girls through the years. Thank for every precious moment and for all the long drives to get here. I hope you love these photos as much as I love your girls… which is a whole ton of a lot. I appreciate your patience- the rest will be finished soon!

She’s an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny, sweet and smiley, growing preemie.
And even though she is still very tiny for a one-year-old, she did a lot of growing during her first year.
The proof is in the pictures:
And, her personality has grown just as much as her little body.
She has grown into a mind of her own.
Despite her mother’s best efforts, she did not want to wear her pearl bracelet.
It was cute how she would immediately take it off:
And it’s so very true that she’s pretty in blue:
These tiny feet are going to go places.
Right now, let’s appreciate that they don’t touch the floor.
And just look at her denim eyes:
And two new baby teeth… so sweet.
Precious and pretty… this sweet little bitty.
Oh, and there was cake. And she knew just what to do with it.
I love her!
To her parents: I can’t believe how quickly her first year went by… and I am so glad to have been able to document her growth every few months. I love her smiley personality… she must get that from her big brother, Mr. Beamer. Your sessions are always a lot of fun and full of laughs. I hope you like this preview- you know the drill from here!

Fair as powder, soft as fluff.
A solid baby boy, full of sweet stuff.
He’s a powder puff.
Mr. Powder McPuff…
Sweet baby boy, full of style,
Curly blonde hair and a new tooth in his smile:
Super-duper cute from his head to his toes,
Sitting on the floor in his own clever pose.
As much as we try, the growing never slows,
But, here, with my camera… time has froze.
I love this baby right down to each shoe:
He’ll raise his hand if he loves me, too!
To his mama: First of all, you crack me up. I love how we laugh (and Minnie-Mouse giggle) during your photo sessions. I’m so glad to be photographing your 2nd precious baby throughout this way-too-quick first year. He is a charming and beautiful boy. I hope you like these- the rest will be finished soon!
