What an absolutely BEAUTIFUL family I had the privilege of photographing yesterday!
Shauna (ella’s mommy) wanted to get family portraits taken with her precious little one Ella. Grandparents and all! Ella is a very special little one, and this family came from far and wide to get pictures with sweet Ella.
It was a perfect day, beautiful puffy clouds and the bluest blue sky. And even though some of the family was getting over a VERY bad stomach bug, they were all such troopers! Yes it was warm, after all this is Georgia… in May. BUT fortunately we were in and around gardens with lots of shade! SO IT WAS JUST RIGHT!
As I was photographing this family, I slowly began to realize how each of them had such beautiful personalities. Grandpa put his music on my speaker and when the first song I heard was Sade I knew we would get along perfectly. Both Grandmothers had such beauty and elegance. Seeing them interact with Ella was so perfect. (a couple other grandparents were truly missed- they were very sick 🙁 ) Ella’s dad, even though he most certainly wasn’t feeling well, was awesome. some of my very favorite images are of him with her. Each of these relationships are so important and so needed for Ella. And I was so moved with love being able to capture it!
Shauna (Ella’s mommy) IS THE MOST PREPARED MOMMY I HAVE EVER SEEN! She had fruit, and water, and all sorts of goodies for everyone… She beat me to the punch! She is an amazingly strong woman, so very kind, calm, and centered. She is one amazing momma! AND SWEET ELLA! Oh sweet Ella, I love her so! She was just perfect the entire session. I heard maybe two whimpers from her the ENTIRE TIME! She was just as content as could be being outside. She has the most beautiful eyelashes I’ve ever seen and her smile is one that would make any bad day better!
I want to tell this entire family! Even the ones who were unable to make it from being so sick… THANK YOU for letting me be a part of your family for a little while! You all are so beautiful inside and out! I love the support your family has for each other. And the love is so evident.
Shauna thank you for trusting me to capture your precious little one and your family!
ENJOY YOUR SNEAK PEEKS!
