Sierra’s Ten Month Session!

Oh, life.

How you have gotten away from me this year.

Our amazing friend Amber Holritz (The Lifestyle Baby Photographer) came to document Sierra at ten months for us last month (yes, it’s been an entire month since we had these photos taken!) and I am just now getting around to blogging them!

Sierra is 11 months old now, and has changed drastically even since this session! But for now I’ll talk about her ten-month-old self reflected in these images!

When Amber came for our session, Sierra was just starting to wave, thus the photo below: family time in the living room centered around waving at each other. When Amber captured this photo, Sierra was only obliging us some of the time, but now, at 11 months, she waves liberally. Pretty much any time we enter a room with a person in it, she flaps her arm up and down like she’s trying to take flight. It’s oh so entertaining. We all love it to death.

Funny, funny face…

This was a morning session, so we stayed in our jammies. Except for Rich. He didn’t get the memo. 

Alana cracks me up. 

Alana is mostly awesome with her little sister, but sometimes we can’t anticipate what fabulous thing is going to come into her head…and then, before we know it, she’s executing some hair brained idea, like holding her sister this way:

Sierra is mostly very tolerant with an occasional grunt or shriek to define her boundaries. 🙂 

This photo is so funny to me! I don’t remember exactly what was happening here, but Sierra doesn’t look very thrilled 🙂 I love how Amber is the photo ninja. In every session, she captures moments that I didn’t even know were happening 🙂 

I love this image that Amber captured while Sierra was eating. Typically she’s very intense as it relates to food, but this photo makes it look like she’s just hanging out, calmly waiting for her next bite! Don’t be deceived! 

Love. Her. So. Much.

At the time of this session, Sierra was walking with assistance from her little sit & ride car. Now she’s actually walking unassisted. It’s clumsy walking, but it’s walking nonetheless! 

It’s hard to be almost four years old. 

Reading on the couch! Reading a book to Alana while Sierra is awake looks EXACTLY like this…

First she might sit back and listen for a minute…

(such a sweet photo – holding hands)

But inevitably, she decides she really wants to rip the pages out of the book, or at least touch the pages, or eat them. And she gets upset if we hold her back. She’s crazy. And Rich’s face is perfect. 

No idea what was happening here, but it probably has something to do with the fact that Alana loves Amber and gets really goofy when she’s here 🙂 

She steals my heart every day. 

Scrunchynose face! 

I don’t remember what was going on here…family hugs with a side of slobber? 

Yay for self portraits with Amber! 🙂

Amber, Amber, Amber! I am having the hardest time EVER trying to describe how monumentally thankful we are that you’ve captured yet ANOTHER year of life for our family. It’s hard to believe that this crazy whirlwind of a year is drawing to a close. Thank you for every one of these cherished memories. And thank you for being part of our family. We love you.

    I like how you can progressively see everyone get dressed in this session. (except Rich of course):) Love them all, like normal!
