Ellie is ONE!!

I met Ellie's mom, Amanda, at a recent wedding.  I liked her immediately because she reminded me so much of a dear friend.  When I found out that she had a little girl that was getting ready to turn one, I immediately decided that we needed to talk about a smash cake session.  As it turns out, Amanda already had plans of her own! We set up a date and decided on a theme.  When they arrived for Ellie's session, I fell in love.  This kid y'all...happy all the time, cutest smile you've ever seen, and BURSTING with personality.  She loves to dance, make silly faces, and will absolutely melt your heart with her sweet smile. I TRULY enjoyed this little lady, and I can't wait to work with her and her sweet mama again soon!

"Mom, are you SURE I'm one?"

You would think that I posed every single one of these shots.  Nope.  This kid is a natural y'all.

Look at you go Ellie! She stood for the longest that she's ever stood by herself during her photo session.  Show off ;)

One more thing about Ellie? She LOVES to dance.  And she's got more rhythm at one than I have now.

"Wait, you want me to do WHAT with this cake?"   "But the balloons..." "Hold on...that tastes pretty good.  SUGAR!!!"
