I finally met Harper in October. I had been Facebook friends with her mom for a while, as we are both graduates of Cumberland School of Law. I distinctly remember when Harper was born, because I was amazed at how cute she was and by how much hair she had. Don’t get my wrong, I know a lot of babies are born with a head full of hair, but not like hers. She had an actual hairstyle. A hairstyle that, in the course of a year (and without the assistance of a stylist) has transitioned from the perfect little pixie to long layers that is nothing short of hollywood-worthy.
Harper was a good girl during her shoot, but like most little ones, she had her moments. With the idea of the final images genuinely reflecting my subjects’ personality and temperament, I usually won’t let pouting or a few tears stop the show. In this case, I am glad I kept shooting for a few seconds because she probably has one of the most adorable pouts (and angry,” mommy-come-get-me-NOW”) faces I have ever seen!!
