I have waited to take pictures of this peanut for one year. I’ve taken pictures of her parents when they were dating, while they got engaged, their engagement photos, at their wedding, and a couple’s family photos. Their photos not only document their lives but also the course of my artwork as a photographer. It nearly killed me that I didn’t get to take Addie’s newborn photos. Distance is a cruel cruel beast of a thing. I did take some not so official photos of her when they met us in Dallas for a one night stay/quick girls get together, but she was sleepy and she bonked her head and while the photos are quite hilarious of her yelling while Issa is trying to console her, the photographer part of me was not at all satisfied.
So when we went to Tulsa for miss Addie’s first birthday, my number one mission was to take photos of them as a family of three and a few photos of that beautiful little girl all by herself. My heart is overjoyed and bursting with love for them. I know it sounds super gushy, but really I can not tell you how much I love this family and that little lady and that our girls are such good friends. Friendship is worth more than anything to me, and their’s is something I treasure.
Ok I’m done gushing. Here are their photos.
