Sweet Baby Girl

I had the pleasure of taking some newborn photos for my friend this past week. She has two boys and this sweet baby #3 was a GIRL! This lovely babe slept so soundly for a good hour and a half. I just love her lips :)

 My friend had some great suggestions for photos that I had never tried before and she had some props that worked out perfectly, so we gave it a try! I'm really happy with the results :) What do you think?

Here are a few of my favourites....

Tea for Two!

Our little gal has turned two. Whoa! We had a sweet little tea party to celebrate this special day. There were Macarons, lemon cake, mini quiches, fruit, scones, and sweet tarts, YUM! I'm so thankful my mom was here to help me out :) We tried to keep it fairly small by only inviting the munchkins closest to her age and I'm glad we did. It was relaxing and a nice reminder that little ones don't need a lot to keep them happy - bubbles, food, trampoline and no organized activities was a nice relief :)

 My mother in-law helped me search for tea cups at thrift stores so the little ones could pour their own tea in to real tea cups :) I'm so glad we found enough as a lot of the kids enjoyed this.

We made up some green tea for the kids that tasted like Pear-lychee

Ice tea too!

Jumbo bubbles!

Some of the ladies and I :) 

Sneaky cake eaters!

Tea Party Anyone?

Can I just say that I love toddler photo shoots? This little gal of ours has some spunk and it makes photographing her super fun. For her birthday we are going to have a little tea party to celebrate so I thought I would do a few photos with that in mind.  I pulled out a few special items for the pics. She's wearing a vintage dress I bought in Ladysmith at The Vintage Rose last year, the pearl necklace I wore at our wedding, one of my Grandmother's tea cups. and the sweet bunny quilt my mom made for Elena. It helped that there was a slight breeze and some lovely evening light :)

You would never guess from these photos that she loves to hit, climb up the highest parts of the playground so she can jump off, yell NO and run away smiling :)

 Can you tell that she had her hair in pigtails all day...? :)
