I've had the privilege of photographing Elise since she was just a few days old. Watching my little clients grow is one of my favorite aspects of being a photographer. Meeting little ones when they are so tiny and so new to the world then watching them grow as they are starting to sit up, walk and even talk. It’s so sweet and so heartwarming.
Right before we started her session, I turned to Elise and said, “Alright pretty girl are you ready”? She smiled and said, “HOT”! Her Mom and I started busting up laughing. Apparently Elise is not a fan of the hot Missouri summers! We actually were very fortunate for her session because it was a very mild and cool summer evening. We had to reschedule her session four times due to the crazy weather we've had here. Just days before it was hot and humid, but thankfully it was a little cooler when we met up. It was the perfect little reward for us because of the switching around we had to do the weeks before! Ha
From the moment we stepped foot on the sidewalk, Elise was on the move. She was ready to explore and I had so much fun walking around with her and her Mom. When you’re two everything is new and exciting. I loved being able to capture her little looks and smiles as she was checking out all the sites of the area. She loved doorways and windows, but most importantly the stairs. She would get the biggest smile on her face and just giggle, as she would go up and down the stairs. She was so proud of herself as she would reach the bottom of the stairs and some of those images are my favorite. Pure bliss is written all over her face!
The last outfit that Elise changed into was my favorite…a Boston Terrier onesie! Elise’s mom and Dad (Mikey and Stacey) share a love for Boston’s just like I do. Elise in a Boston onesie … it doesn't get much cuter than that!
Here are just a few of my favorites of Elise. These images capture her sweet personality and the little “looks” that make me smile instantly. She is such a little cutie! Looking forward to her next session already. Enjoy and Happy Wednesday!
