Charli | Macomb, IL

Charli is SO much fun to photograph. It honestly never seems like going to work when we have her sessions. She has always been so smiley and giggly, I mean even when she was in that hard toddler age when most parents dread photo sessions with their energetic little ones, she still was so much fun! We have done a pool session (one of my faves) countless sessions with adorable hats and outfits, a lemonade stand and much more! This year we added gymnastics to the list of things we have done. And WOW, she can jump and do cartwheels like crazy! (When editing the photos, my husband looked over at my screen and goes, is there a little trampoline under her? Nope! She can just really jump that high!) It was so much fun to watch her do something she loves! I can’t wait to see what fun thing we will do next!

You can find this adorable fall outfit she is wearing at Rural Bliss in Carthage, IL.
