Ella and her mama share a very special bond. Beyond the love, laughter and total adoration for each other, they share the same birthday! Ella just turned 3 last week which means I’ve been lucky to know and photograph their family for 3 years now. Each shoot just gets better and better. It’s always such a joy to work with clients who are as excited about the whole process of creating as you are. The clothing she brings to the table never disappoints. In fact, it usually makes me giddy with excitement. This session was no exception.
I mean, matching crochet kaftans? I die.
This is from our summer mini session last September. The weather changed so drastically from my first session to my last. From blue bird skies to completely overcast and moody. Their session fell smack dab in the middle. The sun was in and out and then the clouds rolled in and creatied a blanket of blue, gray and white across the sky. The calm ocean breeze turned to tempestuous wind which stirred the ocean so quickly creating foamy white waves that reached farther and farther onto the beach. From sky to water, it created such a gorgeous backdrop.
