Golden Anniversary!

Just before my ninth birthday, someone told me with great relish that it would be my golden birthday!

9 on the 9th!
Your golden birthday!

I've always thought that was a fun way to add even more punch to already great day!
Now, I know that a golden anniversary is technically the 50th, but TODAY is our golden anniversary!

17 years on the 17th!

Happy Golden Anniversary to us!
Many, many thanks and much love to my uber talented sister, Brooke Kelly!

In the kitchen with Mom : Charlotte Child Photographer

We went on vacation last week with my sister and her bunch.  Our visits home are usually short and sweet, so I was so looking forward to spending time with them.

When Brooke said she had an idea for a shoot, I was over the moon excited!  Dresses, aprons, supplies, oh my!
We even had a rainy morning to spend creating both culinary and visual delights.

So, without further ado, here is the cutest mommy daughter shoot ever.  Yes, I am biased because my sister and my niece are beautiful, but even not counting my bias, it really is the cutest mommy daughter shoot ever.  I guess that's more ado, so NOW, here is the cutest mommy daughter shoot ever.
Yes.  Ever.

Thank you so much Brooke!  It was such a treat.  I love you!

Fudge Family : Charlotte Maternity Photographer

Little Liam had his brother big game on for our session! What a sweetie!
Thanks, Mom and Dad!

Cornelius Child and Family Photography : M&R

I think the bugs were out to get us on this shoot, but we made it through and got some beautiful images.  It was great to see these guys!  Thanks so much!

Tashie Family : Charlotte Family Photographer

Photographing this shoot was bittersweet. I got to see the fabulous Tashies, see how much the girls have grown and meet more of their great clean. But the reason for our shoot is they were NYC bound! An exciting venture to be sure, but they will be missed!

They are all settled in now, and I hope the big apple is treating them well. Many thanks to Kathy for arranging this session for her family!
