little miss olivia.

i cannot believe you are turning ONE!

it seems like we just photographed your mommy’s pregnant belly, and your newborn portraits

(which sadly that blog somehow got deleted from the archives) .

but here you are… spunky, smiling, and adorable.

i love every single one of those chubby baby rolls!

we decided to go back to the field we used for olivia’s maternity session

amazing the difference that one little year can make.

olivia is a very lucky little girl.

her big brother, marco, is the best, and he just adores his baby sister.

i have two little girls at home that are convinced they are going to marry him

(and i would love it if one of them did…nothing wrong with an arranged marriage, right?)
