Outtakes with Ella: a 3rd birthday photo session

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

I always like to do birthday photos a few weeks ahead of schedule, especially with Ella, just in case she won't cooperate. This gives me room to do a reshoot if I don't get something I'm happy with. Luckily this time she WANTED to get her picture taken! I ordered her a new hair accessory and she was excited to wear it. I got everything set up and then she decided she wasn't going to stand still unless I put her rocking horse in the photo with her. Ok, whatever...I was just planning to do a head shot anyway so that would be easy enough to work around. We spent about 5 minutes taking photos and when I saw this one in camera I knew it was what I wanted. Done. I'm happy. No tears...from her OR me!

She looks like an angelic little doll in this one. I love it...so sweet and innocent...HA!

And just so you don't get the wrong idea and think that she takes perfect photos like a nice little girl every time I thought I'd share a few that won't make the invitation....on 2nd thought, they might be kinda cute!

For every sweet shot I got from her I had about 100 that resembled this:

She had to get a sneak peak after the session....this was her favorite! I think it's pretty cute too! Happy Wednesday all!
