I know I say this every time I post sneak peeks from this little one’s sessions, but seriously, how could it possibly be time for her 18 month pictures? Maybe it’s the fact that Ellie’s just 5 weeks older than my own little one… so admitting that she’s 18 months old means I have to admit that Luke will be reaching the same milestone next month. Or possibly it’s the fact that I’ve been photographing this sweet face since it was just 10 days old… so every time I go through another session, it blows my mind how much she’s changed – yet again. Either way, here we are… 18 months old… and if possible I believe this child gets more & more beautiful every single time! I’m afraid if Luke wants this one to stay his girlfriend, he’s going to be fighting off quite a few other boys in the future!
So, as I’m going through all of the pictures from our session, I literally found myself tearing up at certain points. I’m not sure if it was this particular age – that I love so much – or possibly just the right song coming up on my iPod at just the right time (maybe something like Steven Curtis Chapman’s “Cinderella” ). And the colors we had to work with… oh.my.goodness. I have been so excited about these & hope that Ellie’s family will love them as much as I do! Ellie’s smart-thinkin’ mama also brought along a special surprise for some of the last pictures of our session… I think that lollipop was the perfect touch with all these great colors… not to mention a great reward for a girlie that did so well for her 18 month pictures!
