there is just something about a black + white photo of a family in their natural element. it turns me to mush. this was such a good session with baby ellie! she was OUT for the first hour while we did parent + sibling pictures, and then WIDE awake when it was her turn. of course the goal is always to have the baby sleep the whole time, but I you cant be a bit disappointed when you get to see big beautiful eyes like these. ugh, so cute. and her big sister was so helpful, I can tell there is a strong bond already.
