I love photographing birthdays because kids grow so fast in just a year. I first photographed Violet at her first birthday and she was so shy. She reminds me of me when I was her age. She was clinging to her mom and didn't really want me in her face photographing her every move. This year, she was full of energy! She was smiling at everyone and laughing a ton. This year we were buddies and it made me so happy. I can't wait to see how she changes throughout this year!
