One of my favorite things about my job is that I get to watch kids as they grow. You might remember Brooke from her earlier photos on this blog, back when she was only 5 months old. She was just learning to sit up and the remnants of her newborn self were visible if we looked hard enough. Even though it feels like we took those photos last week, Brooke is now a walking, energetic 1 year old who is looking more and more like a toddler every day! Thankfully, she still has tons of sweet baby goodness in her and I know her parents are just soaking her up. Hartman family, it was truly a joy to take these photos. We laughed, we joked, we sang, and thankfully, only one of us cried. :) I can't wait to watch Brooke as she grows and continues to develop into the adorable and wonderful little girl I know she is becoming!
Look at those sweet curls!
Grandma Alice and Grandpa Ron came along to help make Brooke laugh and smile, so we took a few pictures of them with Brooke as well. Alice and I bonded while singing Brooke a rousing chorus of "This Little Light of Mine" so we're pretty much BFFs now. :)
