Ella is One!

I'm a little late in getting Ella's 1-year pictures taken - but I hear 13-month photos are the new thing anyways.

The most important thing to this momma is just capturing her at this stage. I know she won't always have the same adorable little faces or smiles and I just wanted to capture the joy she effortlessly oozes. And of course - I wanted to capture her love for her lion.

The kilt she is sporting was mine at about the same age. My 1-year photos were taken in the kilt as well. [I don't have a copy of the picture here, but need to do a comparison at some point]. Thanks to my awesome momma for keeping the kilt for me.

 I also wanted to complete the "series" of pictures we took this year with her in the pink tutu. [We used it for her newborn, 3-month, 6-month, 9-month photos as well.]

[props to Daddy for getting Ella to clap in these photos!]

Heirloom pictures seem to be really popular in the "baby-picture circuit" these days - and I love the idea. I gathered pearls from my mom and my mother-in-law for this picture. The pearls shared by my mom were actually her mother's - and she has gifted them to Ella, so sweet to have such a precious gift for her. Ella also wore the set of pearls that Josh gave me while we were still dating. I just love how these pictures came out - and how much of her sweet personality is captured.
