Tamika & Makaiah | Philadelphia Family Photography

If you have been following me since last year then this little cherub Makaiah is no stranger to you. I shot her no less than 3 times last year and each time I shoot her I am always struck by how beautiful a little girl she is, both inside and out. She has one of those little faces that just makes your heart melt. This time I had the pleasure of shooting her with her mommy Tamika at Washington Square and in Old Cityโ€™s Rose Garden.

So I leave you with this little bit of sunshine for your holiday weekend.

Enjoy !

Isnโ€™t her hat too cute!


Love the special relationship Tamika and Makaiah have.


Yes she is that funny and she isnโ€™t even two ๐Ÿ™‚
