best of 2017.

It is finally time for the jessie hearn photography “best of 2017” photo contest!  This is the 6th year I have done this contest and I always adore compiling my clients’ favorite images from their full or mini sessions (petite sessions are not eligible for the contest) and putting them together for you to see.  It has been such an incredible year and I am so thankful to photograph such fantastic families.

Now it is up to YOU to decide which image will be the favorite of 2017.

Wasn’t it just yesterday that I wrote this, and this, and this (click on the words to read previous posts)?
And yet somehow I am here writing a post about my baby turning FOUR.

Asher, you are my sunshine.
You make the world smile when you smile.
You love superheroes.
And buttered noodles.
And candy. Lots and lots of candy.
You love to play.
You have an amazing imagination.
You adore your sisters, and do everything you can to drive them crazy.
You are hilarious.
You keep me on my toes. Every. Single. Day.
And yet I can’t even remember a world without you in it.
You climb, jump, and leap off of every single thing you can find.
Yet somehow you also manage to be the most cuddly little person I’ve ever met.
Thank you for the gift you are to my life.
I love you with every single ounce of my heart.
