So this little cutie and I are birthday sisters. We both share the same birthday: Feb. 2nd. The best day of the year! So obviously I was thrilled when her parents wanted to do a 5 year birthday session in the studio. It was so perfect. Their family cuddled on the bed, the siblings took adorable shots, V jumped around a ton, and honestly she was a natural model! She just posed and posed and smiled that gorgeous smile.

My camera was like “WOOOOOW. Give me more!!!”

Five year olds are awesome subjects. They can be directed and listen to me when I pose them. So you parents out there, who are despairing because their toddler just won’t sit still (ummm, that would be me and my crazy 2 year old) – there is hope! Kids get better at photos and actually enjoy them! They love being the center of attention, especially when it’s for their birthday and big balloons are involved.

And I loooooved seeing Samuel again. He’s so big from his newborn session just three months ago! Oh my goodness. I just loved rubbing his fuzzy hair.

It was a blast and I will be partying with her in my heart in a few weeks for our birthday!
