Magically, with the power of blog-ville, Emery turned 6 months old in a little over a week :)
I've known Meg + Sam since 2012 when we met on a cold night to talk about their wedding in 2013... that day came with a rain-soaked, love-filled ceremony I'll never forget! They called in 2014 because Meg was expecting - YAY! Baby girl was due on their 1 year anniversary, but didn't arrive until about a week later. Emery's newborn session was the first "really serious" newborn session I ever did and she slept like the champ the whole way through.
When I met up with this trio for Emery's 6 month photos, she still had those full sweet cheeks and lips - and a pair of eyes that totally saw into my heart. WOW. I've never seen a baby so intense! It was amazing to wonder what she was thinking about all the things we had her do - lay in her crib, stand with Mom and Dad, smile - it's hard work being a cute baby model!
It's totally true that Em only has eyes for Mom and Dad - they were the only ones she smiled for and I kind of loved it that way. She is such a sweet girl and so talkative; once she started moving around in her crib, she was chatting up a storm! So sweet :)
Can't wait to see how you grow in another 6 months, Em!
** For those who are curious, YES! I am photographing a select number of 1 year packages - from maternity, to newborn, to 6 months and finally, 1 year! Well, maybe not finally because I hope to keep watching these little ones grow! If you are or know a Mama expecting a sweet little one, contact me! I can't wait to meet you! **
