As a photographer, I get the opportunity to partake in some pretty amazing moments in peoples lives – weddings, engagements, births, & progressive baby pictures. When it came time to take Miss Chelsea’s 9 month pictures, I almost cried, because it meant that she and her mama were going home to Colorado soon to welcome her daddy home from a deployment. While I was so excited for them because I knew what a relief it was for Mom, I knew that this time in their lives was over. We made sure to have pictures taken with her Grandma so that she’d always have memories of when HER baby and HER baby lived with her. What a bittersweet time, huh? I made sure to give her extra kisses this time, & she did not disappoint with her giggles & toothy little smile! And if you check out this post, you might recognize where we are along with some similar shots :).
