This year, I have been so fortunate to have been photographing so many celebrations of little ones turning one year older. Capturing the Harris Family and Charlise turning three is so very special to me for so many reasons. You see, the Harris family were one of the first families to trust and hire me to take Charlise’s newborn pictures. I was just starting out in my photography journey, me and my trust Canon Rebel T4i (man, did I love that camera). Charlise’s newborn session was definitely very special for me because it helped me realize that I wanted to be a lifestyle photographer more than anything. Fast forward to today, and this little tiny person is a big girl with a great big personality.
The Harris Family and I met at Brant’s Apple Orchard in Ashtabula, Ohio for their session. I was amazed that such a beautiful orchard was located only 40 minutes from my house and I had never been there before. Well, I had never been at an Apple Orchard, ever, so this was another special first for me. I’m beginning to sense a trend with this family and introducing me to new experiences 😉 We had such a good time exploring Brant’s Apple Orchard, eating apple cider donuts and drinking warm apple cider. Meanwhile, I was snapping away at Charlise because, how could I not! This girl has such a big, beautiful, and bold personality. She didn’t shy away from getting her picture taken either.
I remember at one point during the family’s session talking with her dad about how he will have to start preparing himself for when the boys come knocking on their door. There is no doubt that Charlise is a beautiful girl and it’s her cheerful and high spirited personality that really makes her shine. Baby girl, you are growing so quickly and I am so honored to have watched you grow into such an amazing toddler. Wishing you the very best on your third birthday! Here are a few of my favorite portraits from their family portrait session.
