Dear Little Man, {a first year experience in Columbus, Ohio}

Dear Little Man,central ohio baby's first year photographer Did you know that I photographed your mom and dad’s wedding?  DSC_3469It’s true.  It was a beautiful summer day just a few years ago.  They got married in the sunshine, smiling and breathing it in.  Your mama wore purple shoes, and your daddy looked quite dashing.  They kissed under a tree and danced under a disco ball.  They were (and still are) sweetly in love.

That was a few years ago.  Now you have popped on to their scene.  During one of the coldest and longest winters they had seen, YOU became their sunshine.  And their smiles grew wider, their hearts bigger, and when they looked at each other in the eyes, they looked a little more deeply.  central ohio baby's first year photographerThey were in awe of you.central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer And then one day, you could crawl.  And sit up on your own.  And you made all these really awesome faces.  central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer You were rascally and got into everything.  And they were in awe of you.central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographercentral ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer And the next thing they knew, you were walking.  And really, really playing.  central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer They followed you around and kept you out of trouble and laughed with you.central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographerAnd yet again, they were in awe of you.  central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographer central ohio baby's first year photographerAnd now.  Now you are big.  A year has flown by.  And they have been there through it all – to help you, to love you, to marvel at your very existence.

A couple of weeks ago, you watched your aunt get married.  sarah gee-7284You wore a bow tie.  You danced.  You ran around like you were in charge, and sent plenty of people running after you.  You laughed and laughed.  sarah gee-7291YOU are so loved.
