My favorite photos capture emotion, laughter, and feel real. No fake posey stuff here!

I had so much fun helping to celebrate Bโ€™s first birthday! She is super adorable, especially with her ginger colored hair in a little ponytail. So stinkinโ€™ cute, I could barely even stand it. She was a really good sport, even with a couple outfit and โ€˜setโ€™ changes ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy birthday cutie pie!
