I'm so happy that I had the opportunity to photograph this sweet little lady again! Last time I saw Ella, she was 6 months old and she was just starting to sit up all by herself, but still a little wobbly. Let's just say that in 6 months, she's gone from a baby to a little lady right before my eyes! She even got her ears pierced and rocks some sassy diamond studs!!
While I was getting all my camera settings ready for her photoshoot, Skylar sat Ella down to get her in place for her pictures... and all of a sudden, Ella STANDS UP AND WALKS AWAY!?! Since when did she become such a big girl?! She went from a wobbly infant to a full on toddler basically OVERNIGHT! (I know all the moms out there are probably arguing that the time frame is more comparable to a blink of an eye rather than a day! lol But still!) I totally wasn't expecting that!
Skylar has been planning Ella's 1 year portraits since her last shoot and all I can say is all her hard work and planning PAID OFF! She has such an eye for detail and I was so excited when she told me she wanted to go for a Fall Boho vibe for this shoot! She totally nailed it! From the teepee, to the throw pillows, to the pumpkins, to all the other fun props and outfits in between! She had sent me some sample sneak peeks of what she was working on over the past few months, but it was so neat to finally to see it all come together!
If there's one thing that I love equally as much as chubby baby rolls, it's baby hair that does whatever it pleases AND STILL LOOKS ADORABLE! :)
If only I could get away with mine doing it's own thing... ;)
After wrapping up a few "mommy & me" shots, we headed over to a nearby cotton field where more magic took place! I told Skylar that we were definitely crossing off an item on my "photography bucket list", but seriously it was even better than I imagined!
Also- if we could just take a second to appreciate that PERFECT golden light filtering through the all the pretty cotton!!
Ella seemed perfectly content being surrounded by all the "southern snow"! :)
Miles and Skylar, thank you so much for allowing me to capture these sweet moments for your family! I hope you enjoy every second of Ella's 1st birthday celebration! It was great to see you guys again! Next time I see Ella, she'll basically be a teenager! ;)
