This past weekend, I sat down to edit this sweet girl’s mama’s maternity pictures. At the same time, I realized, I had forgotten to share her first birthday pictures. I could say, “blame my new mom brain,” but that wouldn’t do justice to the serious pregnancy brain I had before I became a mom. Anyhow, I wanted to make sure that we would get Ella’s first birthday pictures before welcoming my son. Her mommy, Mandy, graciously accepted having Ella’s pictures taken before my due date. Therefore, on a warm summer morning, Ella’s first birthday session took place at the beautiful Frontier Park in Erie, Pennsylvania. Not only did we capture Ella’s 1st birthday pictures but also a sweet surprise announcement.
To say that it has been an honor to capture Ella’s first year milestones would be a severe understatement. I had the honor of taking her picture when she was still in her mommy’s belly. Later, I went on to capture Ella’s lifestyle newborn pictures and her 6 month milestone pictures. While she is now about 18 months old, I can’t help but get emotional about seeing her grow up. I am witnessing this beautiful child blossom in front of my eyes and her personality astonishes me. Ella is full of so much joy and excitement about trying new things. I can only hope that my little boy will learn from your adventurous spirit, Ella.
Any day now, Ella will become a big sister! I have no doubt she will be an excellent big sister to her little sister. But before mommy and daddy made the announcement, I had the honor of capturing the sweet news.
Congratulations again Nick, Mandy, and Ella! (Ella looks concerned 😉 )
