One of my favorite things about being a photographer is growing with a family. I met Andy and Deann back in 2013 when they were expecting their first daughter, Harper. I have had the honor and privilege of continuing to photograph them as their family has grown from two to four.
And now the little angel who I first met as a bump, has now turned two. I can’t believe she has already been on this earth for two whole years. What I love most about Harper is her sweet little energy and curiosity about the world. She has become such a little person! When we were choosing the location for this shoot, a bookstore wasn’t the first thing that came to mind, but after chatting about fun places that she might enjoy, a bookstore seemed to be a wonderful option as a place for her to explore.
We looked at and smelled the pages of old books, wandered through the shelves, and stop and read a few pages here and there, enjoying the ambiance that comes with a quaint bookstore. And what followed are the little gems shown above. Please join me in wishing Harper a very Happy Birthday!
