I met Zayleigh’s mom, Aimee, years ago when we both worked retail. Our shifts often lined up and we made quite the dynamic duo. Aimee would always show me photos of her adorable baby as we straightened items on the shelves and cleaned up the store before heading home. Of course, it didn’t take long for us to form a plan for me to take photos of baby Zayleigh, who was only nine months old at the time. So we met at a nice park in town and I photographed sweet Zayleigh as she crawled around in the grass. I’ve been photographing her every year ever since.
