I have been lucky enough to be photographing Amy and her family for quite a few years now. I remember doing a cake smash for Jace. Now it was Ellie’s turn and she did not disappoint. Before we got to the cake smash though, we did some family portraits outside. It was quite sunny out, so we found some shade by the tree in their front yard and captured some great moments. Ellie was so calm the entire time. I think she was more confused by me if anything, which worked out perfectly!
Amy then brought out a beautiful mirror and let Ellie play around it for a few minutes. She didn’t quite know what to make of it but I was able to get some good photos nonetheless. I also snapped a couple picks of their dog Oliver who is still looking great. He was busy chewing on a bone so it was relatively easy to get a good photo.
We then headed inside to Ellie’s room and did the cake smash portion of the session. Ellie was very delicate with the cake and it was a slower paced cake smash. Regardless, I got so many awesome photos and reactions. It’s hard not to with those enormous blue eyes of hers. Jace was his usual photogenic self as well.
I really can’t believe how fast time goes by. Amy says there are no kids planned as of now so I guess Jace and Ellie will have to do for now!
