I really wonder sometimes why I am so lucky. I have the honor of documenting so many babies' first weeks of life. . . and again when they're a little older as they crawl throughout their home and discover so many new things. Then again when they're walking, talking, growing up. It's been such a pleasure working with my clients over and over again, and by the time their baby is a year or so, it's just like visiting with family. This family is no exception. It has been such a pleasure working with them over the past year. Just over a year ago, when their babies were a week old, I was able to witness their bond because any time we'd lie them down together, they'd immediately find each other and snuggle right up, arm in arm. It was precious to watch.
I've had the privilege of watching them marvel at their first Christmas lights together, listening to their babbles and coos. Crawling, laughing, smiling, enjoying the beauty around them (and watching their parents acting silly behind me and my camera). ;)
And recently I was invited to join in their first birthday celebration,to see them walking around as the full-fledged toddlers that they have become. It was a perfect, lovely afternoon in their backyard, and I'm so happy that I was able to be in attendance.
Thank you, Chris and Monique, for letting me come along on this sweet ride with your family. I've enjoyed every moment, and I look forward to watching your "babies" grow.
