A Baby Ukrainian Princess Turns One ~ Fort Lauderdale Baby Photographer

This family is very near to my heart. The mom E, is a close friend and was my FIRST paying customer. Often times photographers complain about friends and family that expect photography for free but when I offered to photograph her family for her son's first birthday she insisted on paying. She wanted to be remembered as my first actual paying client. Sniffle, sniffle. This year E's beautiful daughter A, turned one and we captured this time on the beach and in my home studio.

Baby A is already walking at 12 months! She even managed to take some steps on the soft and uneven sand. Girl is on a mission!

Her big brother A, is such a ham. He's also super handsome and a charmer. As soon as they got to the beach he ran up to me, threw his arms around me and said "Hi Auntie Kristin"! Which of course made me melt, especially since I haven't seen him for at least a year.

Oh and he has got the moves like Jagger, the moves like Jagger, or as his dad proudly stated, "That's the Latin fire baby", lol!

A and her mom stopped by my home studio for some one on one photos the next day. Here A is wearing a traditional Ukrainian skirt in true princess style.
