My goodness, I have allowed way too much time go by since this wonderful session. I am soo in love with these images from Priscilla’s one year portraits, and these beautiful girls! I almost think I put off writing this blog post out of fear that the shortcomings of my ability as a writer would take away from how special these images are. And that is not a good reason to delay sharing them with you!

It was such a joy to finally meet Amanda after back and forth on the phone planning the session. Her daughter, Priscilla, had just turned one and Amanda wanted to document this milestone and bottle all the adorableness of Priscilla at this age. I had so much fun exploring with little miss Priscilla. This little girl was literally happy during our whole session. Easy going yet independent, just like her mamma!   Which isn’t surprising, since she has such a strong a beautiful role model.  Amanda battled breast cancer at a very young age. As a strong survivor she is now healthy and vibrant with life, as she cares for her beautiful babe and while working towards her MBA. Her strength & joy really shine through even from just spending an evening with her.

I know that this photo will be one that is treasured for years to come. ^ Looking back at the time she was learning to walk, and how those little fingers would hold so trustingly onto mom’s…

This next set, I think are my favorite. Such a peaceful setting, playing & laughing wrapped in all that golden creamy sunlight = all the feels!

One of the many challenges that Amanda has faced is that the cancer has made breast feeding extremely difficult for her. She is limited to  use only one breast to feed her daughter. Amanda asked if we could do some tasteful images while she fed her daughter. Highlighting the beauty of this bond that her and her daughter share, and to celebrate (rightly so!) that she has been able to successfully breast feed the entire year of her daughters life and continuing to do so now! Not only is this a testament of Amanda’s strength, but of the strength of her love for little Priscilla. I really love the serene stillness of these images <3

Then, the second half of the session, after a quick outfit change, we headed out from the little orchard we were tucked away in, out to the fields at Knox Farms.

Happily, the girls watched the sunset & snuggled some more 🙂
