A year ago I met a beautiful soul named Freya.

She was in her mama’s belly at the time, and we made friends with each other through skin – I would tell her stories, and she would wave at me making Angel’s belly ripple. She is growing into the most precious, soulful little one. Her laughter has evolved into a loud chortle and her eyes shine love and truth and beauty.

To celebrate her birthing day, we gathered to eat and watch a puppet show and bless and photograph Freya, her mum Angel and brother Connor…

I hope these photos make you giggle, gasp and make beauty flowers blossom in your heart.

Looking all Hepburn-ish 🙂

Connor is going to be a photographer…
Here he takes a picture of me taking a picture of him…

And photographing his mama…

I think I need shoes like this.

Miss Freya and her gorgeous grandma

Now that you are one, you can put your own hat on…
