Mornings with Gracie | Athens, PA Child Photographer

From the moment she wakes up, 10-month old Gracie is looking to explore. Our mornings are a blur of movement for about three hours until she crashes hard for┬áher morning nap. She’s recently started walking so each morning is a new opportunity to see how far her feet will carry her. Often this walking and exploring starts before I am even fully awake.
