This family is near and dear to my heart. I first met Stephanie and Bobby at their engagement session. When they wanted their engagement photos to be at the Reds stadium, I knew we’d be fast friends. Then, at their wedding, I saw their families and friends love them and celebrate them, and I felt like I was one with them, celebrating two of the best. Oh, and I was hit by a rogue firework at the reception, so it was all very unforgettable. :)
Now, they have their sweet Callie, and they are all just THE CUTEST. I mean, look at this smile. She’s perfection! I CAN’T EVEN WITH THIS SIDE-EYE.
We took these photos to celebrate her first birthday. I know all too well how fast the time goes with little ones, and it was an honor to be asked to photograph this special time for them. Bobby, Stephanie, and Callie:: YOOOOOOU GUUUUUYYYYSSSS… you really are some of the best. It’s been an honor and a privilege to photograph you time and time again. I am crossing my fingers to have you in front of my camera again! (and, if you want to come by for coffee sometime, I wouldn’t mind that a bit!) Lots of love to the three of you, and happy birthday to your beautiful baby girl! Also, these last two photos? I think they could simply be titled: THIS IS ONE.
