Capturing the moment

I just love this photo.  I don't know why, but I just do.  Maybe it's the look on Aria's face, as she stares up, up, up at her bigger-than-life daddy.  She seems so small, in this photo, standing there next to her father.  And I can't help but to think ahead, as my mind often does....

One day he will be attending her soccer games
or her ballet performances. 
One day he will be driving her to a school dance
or taking her to the orthodontist to get her braces taken off. 
One day he will be shaking the hand of her future husband. 
And walking her down the aisle on her wedding day.
One day he will be pacing the waiting room as she delivers her first child. 

One day.

But right now, on this day....  she is 14 months old.
And she is looking up at him, with that look on her face.
She really just adores her daddy, and that makes me so happy.
And I was lucky enough, on this day, to capture that expression on her face.

God, I love cameras.


  1. Priceless! I can't believe my baby already turned 1! It kills me to think of how fast they're growing up. You're so good to capture these wonderful real-life moments in your family that will be cherished for years.

  2. what a sweet face, so adorable!
