Little Miss Evie : One Year Portrait Session

Little Miss Evelyn has been proving over and over what a little miracle she is. It makes sense that I named my baby plan “Little Miracles” because you just don’t always realize how miraculous some babies are. It was simply an act of God that this little lady made it through her first month of life, and over and over she’s managed to fight off illnesses and medical complications. I am totally smitten with this little girlie and her mommy is among my very favorite people. I have so much admiration and respect for her.
Our session started with this sweet little set I dreamed up. The crafting bug bit me the morning of her session and I had this urge to create a pennant banner out of fabric… mind you, I hadn’t been hit with this inspiration until about 4 hours before our session… but I found some leftover chenille that I had from a baby quilt I made, so I whipped something up with length of ribbon I had from packaging on a blanket I bought a while back. Took about an hour but it was totally worth it. LOL!
Then when I was creating my different “sets” for Evie’s shoot, I remembered that I had helium left in the balloon tank I bought for Collin’s birthday party and I found I had one pink balloon left! Perfect!

Next, we had to do something more colorful and I had this rainbow lollipop that I bought a long time ago and keep forgetting to try to use. So I set that out and coordinated it with my colorful blue wall, a hot pink rug, and Evie’s own cute headband. I love the look! And the expressions she gave me while trying the lollipop were awesome!
I also pulled out a prop I’d bought a couple years ago, with the intention of using it when I took pictures of Evie’s older brother, Easton, but I forgot I had it. So when I realized Evelyn could use it, I made sure I didn’t forget this time. Doesn’t she make a fetching cowgirl? 🙂
Next we did a pretty purple number, a aqua petti-romper that really brought out her eyes, and last but not least, the sweet angel wings that we used when she was a newborn. She gave me the biggest grin of all when we took those.
I feel so fortunate to be blessed with the gift of photography and having been chosen by this family to document their memories in portraits that will become cherished heirlooms.
