I love this little girl and her infectious smile, and I love her family, too! There are not many people in this world that are as dear to me as Eliza’s grandparents, parents, cousins, aunts and uncles, and the list goes on. In fact, Eliza’s mama watched me grow up! Now, I have the pleasure of watching her grown up, and capturing her sweet milestones along the way.

Eliza celebrated her first birthday in January, and we did her one-year session exactly one week and one day after her big day. There was snow on the ground, and it was quite chilly outside, but there was plenty of warmth and giggles inside and Miss Eliza didn’t shy away from the camera at all.

Eliza’s room is the perfect reflection of her personality–bright, bubbly, and pretty as a picture. I always tell Katey, Eliza’s mom, that she sure know how to decorate a home with photographs in mind! Sweet E, I’m thankful for the opportunity to be a part of your life and love watching you grow. Here are some of my favorites from this little one’s adorable first birthday celebration!
