Happy Friday! I realized it's been a bit since I did a "Family Friday" post, so I thought I'd share some very overdue photos of Elysse's 9 year old portraits this fall! I know, very overdue!  

Elysse has always been a fashionista and I am loving how she is so independent and creative. She has a sweet disposition and really cares for others.  She likes to make people feel loved.  She loves gymnastics, crafting, making slime, and making stop-motion videos with her dolls.  She even wants to start her own YouTube channel this summer! We're so proud of her creativity and spark.  XO

Family Friday | June Turns One

I can't begin to tell you how happy this photo shoot makes me! Being able to document a new life being brought into the world is truly a gift and when you get to watch that child grow and you document her first year, well that's just gravy! 

Children grow up so quickly and they change so much in their first year of life, I always recommend you take photos of them every 6 months or yearly to document their ever changing expressions and their unique personality as they grow! It's so much for to look back as your kiddos get older and reminisce on how tiny they were.  Photos bring back so many beautiful and funny memories! It is such a gift to be able to document these beautiful moments and milestones for families and I get to call it "work"! 

I had so much documenting this twist on the "cake smash". I loved how at the beginning she wasn't too sure what to do, but once she had a taste of her pie, she was all for it! 

June, you are such a special little girl and I look forward to watching you grow into the amazing young woman you are sure to be! In the meantime, keep rockin' those hair bows! Much love to you, baby girl! XO
