September completely escaped before I had the chance to share the photos that Jonathan's enormously talented brother Stephen Jerkins captured for us early in the month. We jaunted up to Nashville for a visit (getting to see our precious nephew too!) and a photo shoot with our busy bee one-year-old.
She was two days shy of 13 months in these photos, so I'm sticking to my "one year photos" label. We had a lovely time in Franklin, Tennessee, at the park there and at Amanda's former school O'More College of Design (where the porch photos were taken). The weather had just cooled down for the first time that very day, and the light was lovely. I believe these photos are really the perfect snapshot of Jules' personality at that moment.
I'm not going to even apologize for the quantity of photos in this post because a) I'm the mommy/it's my blog/blahblahblah and b) there are so many I just love. You will see that my (ahem, much-overdue) new blog header contains one of these photos too!
I would be remiss here without noting that despite Juliette being ALL over the place while we were taking these (as I imagine is the norm for a one-year-old? idk, it was my first time trying to take photos with a one-year-old), Stephen's patience and skill with the camera were the victors, I say!
Daddy got her this horsey for her birthday. That whole daddy/daughter + pony thing really isn't a myth, huh?
Oh, I will treasure these for always and ever. Thank you times a million, Steve!
Stephen is going to be in Memphis on Saturday, October 20, and has some time available for family shoots. If any of you Memphians are looking to get your family/little one(s)' photo made, take a look at the family gallery on his site, and find his contact info here.
