I have had the privilege of knowing this sweet beautiful family for a year now, and they have been so kind as to trust me with preserving memories of their first son in his first year. Corbin has been one of the most delightful babies ever to photograph–he is nothing but smiles all the time. He’s so easy to photograph, and those blue eyes melt my heart. His mom and dad are so sweet and kind and I have thoroughly enjoyed having them as my clients this year. I hope to continue to document their family as they grow–and of course I love spending time with sweet Corbin.
This month, Ella has learned to army crawl, sit completely unassisted without toppling over, eat cookies with her hands, steal food off the table, and pull her brother’s hair. She can give hugs and big open mouth kisses. She’s a ninja on a changing table and can flip over and grab every object with her octopus arms that suddenly spout from her tubby little body. She insists on being held 24/7 and has the attitude that won’t quit. Her cheeks are completely edible. Her hair is getting longer and even thicker than before, and is the prettiest shade of dirty blonde that matches her skintone, which is like my youngest brother’s and a little bit olive. Her eyes–goodness her eyes. I get told all the time how beautiful they are. Just this week, a man told me she had the prettiest eyes he’d ever seen. And today at breakfast, I overheard our waitress tell another girl to “go look at that baby’s eyes”. I love this diva to pieces even though she totally exasperates me–especially when I try to take her photos (which she thinks is a form of ultimate torture.)
Ella Grace is the beautiful daughter of one of my best friends in high school–and I’m so honored to have photographed her since birth.
Ballerinas pick their noses too, you know.
