Little Lady

I think my favorite part about family pictures is listening to what parents call their kids. We have quite the long list of silly little names as our three kiddos have grown, so I just loved it when I heard them call their sweet baby girl "Little Lady". It fit her perfect. Four month old Elsa was just precious as can be and her first time parents, Angella and Erik, were giddy with every smile and coo she made. Angella and I went to high school together but she now lives in San Francisco...I'm so jealous! :) They were coming to town and when she asked me to take photos while they were here I just couldn't wait. Ang, your family is beautiful and I loved seeing you after all this time. You look gorgeous as ever and have a darling "Little Lady". Thank you for having me!!

Elsa was baptized while they were in town. I was so honored when they asked me to take photos of her in this beautiful gown that has been passed down through generations since the early 1900's.
