Well, hello, Miss Photogenic!!! Alice Kaiser is one very special little girl who celebrated her first birthday this week after a year full of amazing feats!!!
Alice was born prematurely at 30 weeks on April 30, 2015 – I’ll never forget seeing the first picture of this precious girl in the arms of her sweet Mommy! Her parents (and all of those who love them!) have marveled at all she has endured, how hard she has fought, and all she has accomplished in her first year of life! Truly, beautiful Alice’s first birthday is an epic milestone to be celebrated in the grandest fashion!!!
I loved every minute of getting to take her One Year Old photos! How could I not, with those gorgeous blue eyes and sweet, feminine poses?! ….and that FLOWER CROWN! I mean, really……. 🙂 Happy Birthday, Alice!!!
Brandon, Charlotte and I have had a busy last couple of weeks full of LOTS of travel — and driving!! We drove from St. Louis to Louisiana, and back, only to pack up again the next day and drive to Boonville, MO for the Missouri River Music Festival. Not easy on a little one year old, but she was a trooper — she started walking, like, for REAL, backstage at Thespian Hall where we were performing for the weekend!
But, I digress….. 🙂
While in Boonville, I had the joy of getting to photograph my new friend, violinist Nicole Fan, who was in need of some new PR photos. We enjoyed getting to take advantage of some of the gorgeous homes around Boonville — the homes have such gorgeous architecture and decor — and, it must be said after this SWELTERINGLY hot week, AIR CONDITIONING!! Yes, an indoor shoot was an absolute must with all this heat and humidity we’ve been experiencing here in Missouri! I was thrilled to get the chance to take some more pictures of a violinist — photographing my colleagues with their instruments is something I hope to get to do increasingly more of as I continue to develop my photography skills. Working with Nicole was a particular delight, as she is so very photogenic and full of personality! She was a real natural in front of the camera!
