Isn’t she lovely? Bella was a bit shy at first. She stayed close to her Mommy’s legs, not sure who this crazy lady with the camera was or if she wanted anything to do with me. Luckily, I have a daughter of my own who is just a few weeks younger than Bella, and that gave us a lot to chat about … our favorite princesses, the important details of planning a proper Royal Tea Party, etc. We became good friends soon enough, and I got to see that beautiful smile peek out.
Bella’s equally beautiful momma is someone with whom I loved spending time. I had a chance to read her blog before we met, and I was so moved by her insightful heart for God. I was very excited to meet her in person. I felt like I was chatting with an old friend. My job introduces me to so many incredible people, and it’s such a blessing to meet another sister.
And the darling white Birthday dress in the last few images … Bella’s mother was even so sweet to share this with me after our session for my own daughter’s 4th birthday! Rachel, I wish you could have heard my daughter’s squeal when she saw the dress that afternoon! Thank you again for your generosity, and thank you even more for sharing your heart. It was a blessing to spend the morning with you and your beautiful daughter.
