a couple of weeks ago, i had the opportunity to capture sweet annemarie's one year portraits.  what made this session so special to me, is that she is the daughter of a buddy of mine from high school.  getting older might not be the coolest thing in the world, but being able to be around your friends and their children, and share their memories with them, make it all worth while.

her mama got this cute little ladybug tutu from Little Divas Tutus, at which 25% of the profits go to St. Jude's Hospital.

annemarie's mommy made these adorable cupcakes.

welcome to your second year annemarie!!!

that's what our grandpa jack called her.  and now she is grown, just one year away from graduating from high school.  she does some really great things...she's an explorer at a local fire department and is learning to be a cna through her high school program.  and she's lots of help with my two boys.  :)

i'm very proud of katie, and i know our grandpa would be too.
