2 Years

AC had her 2 year old pictures taken while we were in KY. My dear friend Rebecca started a photography business about 2 years ago and I have been so impressed with her talent. So I was thrilled when she was able to do AC's pictures.

Here's a little back story on this day. It was 9-11, the morning after my sister's wedding. AC and I had had a late night and I was very nervous that she would not cooperate for pictures. I did almost everything I could to keep her in a good mood that morning. A lot of my anxiety was eased when I first saw Rebecca. She stepped out of her car in what could be considered work-out gear. Immediately I knew she was up for this challenge. If you have a toddler then you know that they never sit still. Getting a picture where they are actually looking at the camera AND smiling is nearly impossible. I knew Rebecca was ready to chase my girl around to get the best shots. And she did. For over an hour. And the best part, my super tired and hungry girl didn't shed a single tear or even whine. It was a great experience. Rebecca was able to capture so many precious moments of my angel. If you know AC, then you will see that these photos are a true reflection of her personality. So, thanks to Rebecca for working so hard to capture the beauty in my girl and to make this mama so happy!

Here are a few that she sent me last night.

Pretending to fly. I love this one so much. Soar, Baby Girl, soar.

Let me just note that I had no intention of being in these photos (hence the leftover bridesmaid hairdo) but I'm so glad Rebecca slipped some in.

So serious.

Some one has a dirty knee!

Taking a break.

Love that this one looks so much like home to me.


  1. I know I have said it before, but I LOVE these pictures. Seriously, AC is absolutely gorgeous! Rebecca did a fantastic job. My fav is her 'flying'..this is absolutely priceless.
