the wirtz family

It just doesn’t seem possible for Henrietta to be turning one already! I could not wait to see this little bug again. She is so darn cute, so fierce, and so into her parents (for obvious reasons). I’d hang out with this crew any day of the week. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sasha is the best photo-bombing dog on the planet. (See this example from last year’s session). She’s an integral part of the family, and poses like a champ on picture day!

As much as I love doing photos out-on-the-town, there’s nothing quite like snapshots of real life at home. They’re the kind of photos that take you immediately back to a place – in this case, a very, very happy place.

Henrietta’s smile is perfection.

Based on the three times I’ve photographed them, and several other instances seeing them together, I’m guessing 90% of the time John and Ella look at each other, they naturally break into smiles or laughter. It’s beautiful!

It wasn’t too difficult to tell when Henrietta was ready to wrap up. ๐Ÿ™‚

John & Ella, thank you SO much for sharing your sweet girl with me and being so wonderful, yourselves. I hope you have the best time celebrating the milestone of her first year!
