How often do you have the opportunity to meet a real life doll? Well, this morning I had the absolute pleasure of photographing a wonderfully beautiful, not quite one-day-old, doll baby! She happens to belong to two wonderful people that I love.
Jessica Trichel-Smith and Mike Smith are not unknown to me. I have known Jessica for many years and Mike has become a part of my “family” in the past few years. I love helping them document every important moment in their lives! From getting married, to announcing what the gender of this beautiful baby was, to maternity portraits — now to birth day of beautiful Caroline Renee — I feel so much a part of their lives.
The holiday season is upon us and so many are busy planning food and thanksgiving. This beautiful family has so much to be thankful for. It was nice to have Caroline’s grandparents there this morning to take part in their portraits. And I particularly loved the door hanger that was sewn with love by Mike’s mother.
I know that this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for their friendship. Enjoy…
