I am overrun (in a good way) with one year old clients. I very much love it! One year olds are such fun, they *get* that someone is paying attention to them and sometimes they even ham it up for the camera, their little personalities are so obvious, their world is such a great place of discovery, what is not to love? Yesterday I had a session with a favorite of mine, Little Max, who just turned one! It was nice to see him again and it feels just like yesterday when he was this small:
…somehow he has grown in the past year, can you believe it? 🙂 Yesterday he was almost walking and on the cusp of mobility. It’s been very awesome to have the privilege of watching little Max grow. I honestly believe that it’s a an honor to be asked to come back time and time again to watch the progression of little teeny little to walker stage and so on. I really do feel like the luckiest gal ever. Enough rhetoric tho, where’s the pics of the one year old?
A big thank you to K & J for allowing me to be a part of your lives in the course of the past year. I so very much enjoyed seeing you guys yesterday, there could not have been a more beautiful day in Lakeview for picture day. It was a lucky day all way round.
p.s. Thank you to Anna for forwarding me this info, taken from the Chicagoist
We’ve read (and cried through) her diary and now we get a glimpse into her family photo album. “Anne Frank: A Photo Album” is on display at Ela Area Public Library in Lake Zurich. Funded from a state grant and brought in from the Anne Frank Center in New York, the exhibit features over 70 black and white photos taken by Anne’s father, Otto Frank, who was a talented amateur photographer. The exhibit chronicles Frank family life from when Anne was a baby all the way up until the family’s last summer together at home.
Forced into hiding in 1942 to escape Nazi bad guys, the Franks hid in an attic for two years before they were sent to concentration camps. Otto Frank was the only surviving member of the Frank family and reportedly gave his camera away and never took another picture again. The opening reception is this Sunday from 1-3pm, featuring guided tours, Jewish food, and performances by the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band. Yes, we know Lake Zurich is a bazillion miles away and there’s, like, basketball and stuff on TV but we think the trip out there is worth it for this exhibit. (And the latkes.) Ela Area Public Library is located at 275 Mohawk Trail in Lake Zurich [TRIB]
