Meet Ellie, just about the smiliest 5 month old around! She was so wide eyed and happy the whole time, and more than once I caught her making funny faces at her reflection in my lens ;0) She’s such a happy little girl, and you can tell she is the center of her parents world. They completely adore her and I could see so much joy in the little moments of the three of them sitting together making Ellie smile. Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE photographing families?!? :0) Bethany and Matt, thanks for sharing your sweet girl with me for the afternoon! Can’t wait to see the three of you again soon!
I love moments like this when I’m close enough and they can see their reflection in the lens :0) She was so fascinated with my camera!
a little tummy time! this one makes me laugh every time :0) I asked Bethany where they spend the majority of their time, she said it was right here playing with Ellie on her bedroom floor :0) this is her happy dance :0) Even Ellie loves reading a good book: these next two are definitely my favorites from the day: but oh man, I really love these next ones of her little naked belly too: most definitely a favorite: apparently toes are her favorite snack ;0) then we bundled up and headed outside for a few minutes at the end of the session: and right here in this moment, Ellie started sticking out her tongue for the first time when she smiles! So funny that I was there to catch it! i’ll end with one more favorite of Ellie and her mama :0)
