Helena -- The Birthday Girl!

As promised -- portraits of (almost) 1-year-old Helena! Her birthday is later this month. She is one of the cutest little babies ever, don't you think? What a sweet little face and squishy little cheeks. She was so cooperative and happy throughout her portrait session...and it was not the warmest day...only in the 40s. She did great until the very end when she fell backwards and hit her head on the window behind her. She was fine, but probably a little scared at the way Kate and I jumped toward her and gasped. Whew!

Anyway....enjoy these shots of cute little Helena.
