Okay, for the record, Ella is my great-niece. But let me just tell you, family or not, she has the most beautiful skin I have ever seen! I was really excited when her mom asked me to take some photos of her at the Neshoba County Fair. While I was busy behind the camera, Ella kept her mom and dad hoppin’. She had no intention of being still for photos! That pretty white dress didn’t stop her from getting where she wanted to go . . . she just powered through. Too cute!
We did the entire photo session at my sister-in-law’s Fair cabin. She has some really great chairs that work beautifully in photographs. I brought a teddy bear from home in case I needed something to capture Ella’s attention. It captured her attention alright! So much so, she climbed in the chair and nearly fell asleep.
But those moments of stillness were short-lived. The stairs were calling. Is there a crawler out there who doesn’t love to climb stairs? And just look at that precious face! No wonder she already has her daddy wrapped around her little finger!!
Whenever I look at this next photo, I half-expect to hear a choir of angels singing. Seriously. Every time. LOL. Her daddy was talking to her. What’s not to love?! Love the little curl down by her ear. Sweet.
For a few brief moments Ella looked at a book about colors. That allowed me to get these sweet shots of her little hands and feet. Great photos don’t have to be of a smiling face! These are two of my favorites from the series. They would look fabulous in a nursery.
It didn’t take long for her to get bored with the book and the stairs. She was ready for more crawling and exploring. First stop was a nearby bucket of toys. Didn’t take long for her to find her favorite one!
I’m looking forward to taking more photos of Ella as we watch her grow. She is blessed with the sweetest disposition. All you have to do is look at her and she smiles. Can’t beat that!
