"Watching children grow up, you learn a lot about life
and about being a better person - you learn a lot about what's
really important in the world and what isn't."
- Sharon Stone
Today we celebrate a little girl who is Two Fancy!
Gabriela turns 2 today and I decided it would be the perfect time to flashback through our journey together!
From the belly days, to sea shell hunting, to cake smashing, and leave crunching.
It has been a pleasure to watch you grow, Gabri! Here's to 3, 4, & many more!
Kelsey and Anthony's maternity session was awesome! It was not only my first outdoor maternity session, but it was the start of our photography adventure together! And some of you other mommas might notice what I like to call "THE DRESS"! Kelsea was sweet enough to donate this dress to me, and since then she's used it as a back drop for Gabri's newborn pictures, and wore it again to celebrate their one year breast feeding anniversary/Gabri's first birthday. Other mommas have gotten to use it too which I think is so sweet and special!
Gabri was the sweetest, cutest, smallest baby! She slept through almost her whole session. This was the first time I met her, but by then, it felt like we had been friends forever! It's so special and exciting seeing a baby in their mommas belly and capturing those moments, and then getting to do the same when they enter the world!
Gabri was about 8 months here I believe, if I'm wrong momma can correct me! But we had a blast taking some family photos. They got lucky and had an amazing sky and amazing weather. And if I remember correctly, this was after two failed attempts, when we both showed up to a black sky at the beach, not once....but twice!!! Well worth the wait!
This was BY FAR the most fun I've had during a cake smash shoot. From the set, to the homemade cake her momma made, to her Etsy milestone sign, we had the whole session ready and Gabri rocked it! She loved her cake and wore a bit of it too!
This session started with a bit of hesitation. We hadn't seen each other in a year, so I don't blame her for being a bit nervous! But, we still tried! We went for a walk, listened to music, and played in the leaves, all of which turned her frown upside down!
I also want to congratulate Gabri's momma, Kelsea, on her 2 year breastfeeding anniversary! By now, most would have had to stop, would have given up, would have gotten bored of it, but you've stuck with it and these images show how important this bond was and still is for both of you!
