lindsey & co.

Chloe Grace. It truly seems as though just yesterday I was taking this little girl's newborn pictures. And here she was today, sitting for her one year portraits. A whole year. Chloe's mommy has become a very dear friend of mine, and I know that as much as I'm in disbelief that Chloe is now cruising, has a mouthful of teeth and a hint of her first curl . . . her mommy is even more so. And her heart has broken just a little. Lindsey and I are cut from the same cloth when it comes to Mommyhood. And when she said the goal of the session was to get some pics of Miss Chloe, but that she really wanted some sweet candids with her baby girl, I got it. Lindsey has chronicled everyday of Chloe's life . . . but has done so from behind the camera. It was important for her to be on the other side for these shots, and I couldn't understand that feeling more. Corey and Linds, you've done an amazing job with your little girl. It has been such an incredible honor to chronicle her little life thus far, and I look forward to the upcoming year! One last thing, and only because it was the most incredible thing I've ever seen: Lindsey has always reminded me of Bree Van de Kamp. And I mean that in the best way, because Bree was my favorite character, and I always wanted to be just like her. Lindsey is so polished. So elegant. So it was not a surprise to me at all that, when Chloe was eating both her snacks and her smash cake, she chewed her food with her mouth closed. Like a little lady. At one. I totally could not believe it, but was not at all surprised. Nor at the fact that the birthday girl barely made a mess when she dug into her smash cake. Seems like Mother and Daughter might be cut from the same cloth, too. Lindsey, enjoy your sneaky. Hopefully the sweet mama and baby girl shots will tide you over through the weekend! And kisses to Miss C!
