I Miss Her Already....Stephanie, Age 2 1/ 2

It's taken me a few days to be able to compose this post, mainly because i get a little 'drippy' every time i try to sit and type. Steph's Daddy has been transferred out to Colorado, so Thursday we set up a 'final session' before they head out.
I first photographed Stephanie just after she started sitting up on her own. She was such a beautiful baby, and even back then her personality was infectious. She's lovely, charming, personable and of course extremely photogenic ;-). I can't even believe how much she's changed and grown with each session. The uber chubby feet and thighs have made way for a tall, demure little girl who stands proud and smiles sweetly at me. She's full of giggles and raspberries and i am going to miss her terribly.
Here is one of the portraits from her first session:

and here she is now...isn't she amazing?

Here she is with her sweet dog, Sadie =)

Mom and Dad's lungs got quite the workout from blowing all those bubbles lol!

Ginger and Chris, thank you so much for sharing your little doll baby with me...till we meet again =)

You did a great job of capturing her personality. I love the bubbles. The pictures show how much she looks like mom.

Rita said...

Lisa, I will miss your beautiful photography. Of course you have the most charming subject, but a grandmother is supposed to be prejudiced.

Wow! They grow up SO quickly, don't they. You did an amazing job of capturing her beauty.

Melissa said...

She is such a beautiful little girl. It's amazing how they love to have pictures taken at that age. You did a wonderful job!

Awww! It's so hard when someone we care about moves away! I'm sure they will keep you updated on how she's growing!

Beautiful, sweet, REAL images Lisa, just perfect. I love the one where she's sitting on the rocks, just such a darling expression!
