A is for Erica. Oh, wait, I mean adorable. Which is what Erica is! To the extreme, mind you. I had the pleasure of spending an hour with this precious tot, who recently celebrated her very first birthday. Mom and Dad (who didn't want to be in the pictures, even though they were rocking a very beachy-casual-chic-Gap-ad vibe and looked A-mazing for just getting out of bed) were very easy-going and such great help! Lauren was the hair and make-up girl, while Andrew took care of lugging all my props around; such sports! And, obviously, Miss Erica did a wonderful job of looking precious in every shot. Such a cutie, and on the verge of walking! A very special girl, a very special milestone, and a very special thank you to Lauren for setting the whole thing up. Happy birthday, Erica (and I hope the sugar didn't keep her from napping, guys!).
