How is my little girl already three?! In the midst of lots of fun wedding and family sessions this summer, we celebrated Charlotte's third birthday. Each year I try to do a little mini-session with her to capture what she's like at that moment in time. The first year we did it, a few weeks before Charlotte's 1st birthday, she only made it about five minutes before a catastrophic melt-down. (Even the snotty photos are pretty precious; is that a bad parenting confession?) Last year, we made it a lot longer, only to have the photo shoot come screeching to a halt when my poor girl fell and split her chin open. Blood everywhere, white clothes... A show-stopper. Thankfully superficial.
This year was less dramatic. Her attention span hasn't lengthened all that much, but at least there weren't any tears. Progress! :) My favorites are the ones that show her spunky, sweet personality. And especially those that show two of her current favorites: twirling and her purple Kitty. Enjoy this little handful from our family time capsule:
