Two years ago I witnessed a miracle - the miracle of life. Sariyah April was born to my dear friend Sharia, and I have the honor of being her godmomma! Sariyah is one of the biggest joys in my life - she loves to laugh, dance, and talk to strangers (just like me, ha!). We celebrated her life with a visit to the zoo, followed by a BBQ with family at Minnehaha Falls.
Sariyah enjoyed talking to strangers more than she liked looking at the animals! :)
This girl adores her dad!
Sariyah loves her cousin Jada! So cute that they love hugging & holding hands!
Playful with Mommy & Daddy
*Meet Tayanaya - the girl whose carrying Jada, playing with Sariyah on the swings, is with me at the waterfall, and is a gymnast with gorgeous hair! All photos that I'm personally in (like the b&wi ones above) were taken by the lovely Tayanaya, my new 12 year old apprentice (Sariyah's cousin)! She has a photographer's eye and I enjoyed teaching her about aperture, shutter speed, and other photography basics.
Cake smashing in mom's face! Sariyah was super concerned hehe :)
Happy 2 year birthday, Sariyah! With love from the fam.
