You may think that Gabriella is a professional model by looking at these shots. But, while not a model, you could say she’s a pro by now. You see, I’ve been photographing her since she was just 3 months old and she’s now five! Some people are just natural in front of a camera and, from her very first session, Gabriella knew just what to do to look adorable and natural. The thing is that, since I’ve photographed her for so long, pretty much everywhere, it’s always a fun challenge coming up with something new for her sessions. Mom and I talk about themes and locations and buy props and it’s a blast every time. Gabriella loves the outdoors, nature and animals, so for this session we did a country style theme. Mom (as always) got the cutest outfits and accessories, and with a perfect day to boot, everything was totally ON for the shoot. Gabriella once again just brought it, I mean, seriously, isn’t she adorable? Such a fun session. I was so amazed at how big she’s gotten that I went through her old sessions and thought I’d share those with you…you can see them at the end of this post. Time flies…don’t forget to stop and document it. ♥ Vanessa
These are highlights of some of Gabriella’s past sessions. I got teary just going over these. She’s growing so fast, but maturing and blossoming so beautifully. The first row are from her first 18 months and was all done on film (feels like an eternity ago that I was shooting only film). The first one with the baby mohawk was at around 3 months. Sigh…so blessed to be able to do this for a living, to be welcomed into a family and to be entrusted with documenting so many lives.
