1.29 Professional Photos

Here are the official photographs from the professional photo shoot that Ella had on January 29.  Charlotte from Girl Taking Pictures took these.   Snacks were involved at the beginning to break the ice. We got there later than I initially thought.  Sometimes they took turns being in front of the camera and sometimes we put them both there. Sometimes we put them both there and it didn't work at all. There are a few times they were both together but there weren't any usable pictures.  The picture of Ella lying down on the white carpet was actually from when Lily and Ella were supposed to be sitting next to each other.  There were different packages for the amount of pictures but after seeing them, I just couldn't pick 5 or 10 and paid $85 to get them all.   I didn't put them all in this post even though I wanted to but you can view them on my google+ album. (I don't often push to go see ALL of the pictures from a particular day or event but here I do because I love them that much. Please check them out!)

These silver shoes didn't last long and I knew they wouldn't. Ella likes to remove them then bite on them. So once she did that, I swapped back to her black shoes.  She loves to bite the toes for some odd reason.

Ella started with her blue dress on. We took a diaper change as an opportunity to change her dress.

We tried over and over to get a picture with this headband on Ella and we managed 1. Charlotte was ready and had to quickly take one in the less than a second it stayed on her head. Her hair was messed up and it wasn't perfect but I'm glad we got it.  The headband was Charloette's and it just perfectly matched Ella's dress.

We asked them if they would hug. Ella went in for a kiss.

Gio put Lily's vest on Ella and Ella just posed like a model!
I don't know what was going on here but this is more like what we are throughout the day so I'm glad it's included!

See this ponytail holder on my wrist? Well I lost that and dug everywhere for it. I was so hot. Then later realized it was on my wrist the entire time.
Here is another one that is pretty natural. I was reading to Ella for real and just would pause now and then to smile.

What do you think?  I think they were worth every penny.


  1. Wow you got some great pictures!!! I love them all.

  2. Hoh - this one!

  3. These are all just so sweet! I like the one of you guys smiling big at each other.

    1. i like both where we look at each other. Then it was like our moment that was captured not just smile for the camera moments
