The photos are stunning, captivating, and most of all, quintessential Charlotte. Never has she looked more beautiful. I adore them not only because I am her mother, and because they are gorgeous photos of a gorgeous little girl, but because they have perfectly recorded Charlie’s personality.
The look on her face captures in one instant how smart she is; how intuitive; how independent; how loving. It may be cliche, but in that one photo, I can see in her eyes the young woman she will become, even though at 17 months she is literally just starting out. I will forever treasure the photo and what it showcases, and it will have a prominent place in our home always.
We have had quite a run with you: our wedding, our first year as a couple and as new dog owners, our first weeks with our firstborn — all photographed beautifully and with that unique Phil Cantor eye that makes them so much more than photos. And now that Charlotte is starting to become her own person, she too is privileged to have her life chronicled by you.
Thank you again, Phil, for playing such a special part in recording English family history. We can’t wait to have you help capture what I’m sure will be many more wonderful chapters, for us and for Charlotte.
