Artistic Addison Year 5

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Addison ever since she was a baby. Every year we meet for her birthday shoot, which is a story of who she is at each stage of her life.

What I love most about her parents, is that they encourage Addy to lead the session; bringing along various items that she loves.  I just follow her around as she plays so that each session is a true reflection of who she is at each birthday.  Isn’t that awesome?!

Last year we went puddle jumping, and this year she’s into crafts, dance, and as always exploring.

Sawyer’s Mom asked if he wanted to blow some glitter into the air with his sister. The time between these two photos is about 30 seconds. Kids, they can turn off those tears like a faucet! 😉

    So awesome! We had a blast and we laughed out loud at the Sawyer shots. Addison had fun and we have decided she is playing with “fairy dust”. Thank you for being so free to go with the flow and try all the wacky things we dream up. You do an amazing job capturing their spirit each year!
