Ella’s momma and I have been planning her one year session for several months. A few days before her session the weather wasn’t looking too favorable for travel. We decided to reschedule and it’s a good thing we did because that’s when we got the blizzard! I have to say, I was kind of disappointed we had to reschedule because I had been looking forward to this session. However, my girls really did enjoy playing in all of the snow.
Finally, two weeks later we did Ella’s session and, while she really made us work for smiles, she did an AMAZING job!
Happy birthday, Ella! I had so much fun with you!

I’m not one for enjoying planning events… (Just ask my mother, who pretty much planned my whole wedding). I’m not sure if it is my attention span that is similar to a two year old’s or what… So surprisingly, I really got into planning my daughter’s “Hungry Caterpillar” birthday party!
One idea I had was to “remake” the Hungry Caterpillar book and make it a picture book of Genesis. It took a lot of planning (from figuring out what outfits to wear, to the backdrop to use, to keeping Genesis interested in this long photo shoot, to designing the actual pages of the book).
Here is a sneak peek inside her book:
I’m convinced that if we had our wedding themed in The Very Hungry Caterpillar I would have been more productive in the planning!
