I can't believe I spent my last day of 2016 with this gorgeous mama to be with her second daughter. Megan and I were so absolutely blessed with not only finding some snow, but a beautiful roaring river. The temperature was cold, and Megan battled the snow for her maternity shoot like a champion. We even were able to get a peak of sunset while shooting.
I cannot believe how fast kids grow up, and equally how fast time flies! I met the gorgeous little Miss. Ava when she was just 3 years old and while she has gotten a bit taller, her love of dancing in circles has definitely never changed. Now just 5 years old, her hair is longer, her dancing leaps a little bit bigger, and her hugs at the end of the session were pretty much heart melting.
I've always heard other photographers talk about how they just wanted to take their client's children home with them, and while I do love all of my clients, I didn't want to steal one until I met Aahana. This little princess steals your heart the second you meet her, and the entire time you can't help but find her laughter contagious. At a little over 2, I'll be surprised to if she doesn't continue to win all the hearts of those she meets as she grows older.
This gorgeous mama in all her maternity session glory now has a beautiful daughter who is turning 1 years old today! It's crazy how fast a year can go by, I know it has for me, and I can only imagine it has for her watching Odessa turn into an adventurous little spirit just like her mom and dad. I can't wait to see what happens next in their amazing life!
