One!

There are many reasons why I love this post.  First up, this little guy belongs to someone pretty special.  His Momma is someone who came into my life 7 years ago when I was searching for someone to care for my daughter so that I could go back to work.  At the time, she was a stranger, but little did I know, she would become someone I call a good friend all these years later even though she's no longer missy's babysitter. 

When Heather contacted me about doing her little man's 1 year shoot, I was beyond excited when she told me she wanted a "smash the cake" session.  But not only a smash the cake, little Ellis is having a sock monkey birthday party and she wanted wanted pictures to match for his invitations as well as to document his first year! 

The day of our session, Ellis was the perfect subject.  He has the most beautiful baby blue eyes, creamy cotton skin and an auburn carrot top little head.  Before we got to his favorite part, Heather wanted some pictures of him in his birthday outfit while they were still clean. ha!  Anyway, here is Ellis who's turning ONE!  Happy early birthday sweet boy, glad you enjoyed your cake!
