I have said it about my nieces before, and I could not help but say the same thing to Jessii and Steve as we began our photo session last week. I loved each and every stage that I watched my nieces go through. Each age I loved them and all of the little things they were learning and the people that they were becoming. I wanted to freeze them at each moment in time and remember it forever. Jessii and Steve could completely agree with me on that one. I guess they are lucky they have the next best thing to bring them right back to that moment, photos. I have been the lucky one that they have chosen to capture this little girl’s life thus far. During her first year, we did a Watch Me Grow Package, and I got to see them every three months! I feel like a distant Aunt to Miss Haylee, and I absolutely adore her! I was selfishly sad when she turned one, because I knew I wouldn’t get to see one of my beloved families as much. This year Jessii contacted me with the good news that Baby #2 was on the way! She wanted me to be there for their journey of the BirthStory and once again, another year of first year shoots! I am so excited for what the future holds for this family. Happy Birthday Haylee! It’s hard to believe it has been 3 years since we all stood in that hospital room waiting to hear that first cry. One day you will be able to watch all of your BirthStory and really see just how happy you made your Mommy and Daddy.
