Baby Briggs...just turned ONE.

I have been honored to be able to take Briggs' pictures since he was 3 months old.
It's hard to believe that he has grown so fast!
One?!? Seriously?!

He is even walking now.

Technically, I don't think that we can call him Baby Briggs anymore.
But Baby Briggs I'm sure it will always be...
until he is seven and embarrassed easily by mom or Auntie Carisa.

He was very content to be outside.
Our sessions have always been challenged by weather and age.
This time it was beautiful and he was a happy camper to explore.

Just look how big he is!
And so adorable...
he was talking non-stop.

I love this picture.
It's so true to this age.

And this picture is my absolute favorite.
It's the chubby cheeks.
Oh my...
I really love little ones at this age.

Thanks Mariah for letting me watch this little guy over the past year.
I have enjoyed it so much!

I have a handful of pictures yet to edit and will get the disk to you soon!

Aunt Katie's home...

Katie is home for a visit.
She is a good friend of mine.
I promised her some pictures this fall while she was home.
She didn't want pictures of just herself...
but the reason why she comes home to visit.


Who wouldn't want to come home to see a precious face like this!?!

Aren't they adorable?
They kept saying, "Aunt Katie! Aunt Katie!"

I never had to ask him to smile.

She had the whole "say cheese" down as well.

He was so busy exploring the pasture I had a hard time keeping up with him!

These two were doing a lot of "hunting" in between pictures.
They are so close...everywhere one went the other followed.
I love this picture.

Aunt Katie bought Cheyanne the cutest tutu,
so we HAD to get pictures of her in it.

We had animal crackers...
need I say more?

And just like that...
she was done with the us and the crackers.

These two had busied themselves with tossing rocks in the water.

While they threw rocks...we snuck in a few pictures of mom and dad also.

Katie, I really hope you like the pictures.
I think we captured your family wonderfully!
