It’s no secret I have a love for all things ice cream and sprinkles…you know who else loves ice cream just as much as I do? Stella! And when she got a new Hanna Andersson ice cream dress this summer I knew it was the perfect excuse to head to the farm for some photos with my Anagram ice cream balloons in tow!
We had so much fun at these photos! 4.5 is such a fun age to photograph! Her big brown eyes were just sparkling as she was laughing at her mom behind me! She has turned into such a little lady and I love listening to all the stories she tells these days, she’s quite entertaining!
It’s hard to believe it’s already Stella’s 4th birthday!!! Where does time go?! We have seen her grow up so much this year and turn into a little lady! I love her spunk and how a hug from her can turn any bad day into a good one! This year it’s all about Doc McStuffins, Paw Patrol, princess dresses, Barbies and Mary Poppins! She is starting to sound so grown up, using phrases she hears the adults around her say, and it’s so cute!
I always change my mind a few times before I decide on an idea for her birthday photos, this year was no different but when I saw this balloon rainbow Photo Booth idea on one of my favourite party blogs, Oh Happy Day, I just knew I had to try it! I was setting up the morning of the shoot and three balloons in I had to wake up Chris to help me….I was afraid I had bitten off more than I could chew and I was WORRIED! When my family arrived I wasn’t even half done yet, EEKS! So Stella had some time to play while everyone else pitched in to help tie, tape and blow up balloons. It really was a family affair! And well worth it….it was perfect for the photos!
I will never grow tired of our fun shoots together!!! I hope she never does either!
It’s December! There’s (a little) snow! Peppermint everything! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Now that December has hit I find the schedule is packed and holiday season flies right by! I made sure that this year I didn’t let the Christmas season fly by without getting some fun Christmas pics with some of the littles in my life. Believe it or not I had Stella and Abby over for these pics in SEPTEMBER!
Since Stella starred in my Valentine’s Day shoot this year so close to her birthday we postponed her official birthday shoot until a little later. I knew I wanted to do a polka dot background to her and then the rest of the details just fell right into place. This was probably the easiest time we ever had picking her wardrobe! I think my favourite part might be the red striped tights with her pink Converse high tops!
One of our favourite things to do together is sing and and dance (march) to some of our favourite Disney songs so the soundtrack to this shoot was The Mickey Mouse Club March, Following the Leader and the Winnie the Pooh song (I like the classics!)….it kept Stellie dancing and singing when we almost had lost her attention!
Hard to believe this kiddo is three already! We just got back from a family vacation to Mexico a month ago and I think she was the most fun yet on this vacation! She was a little fish, swimming SO much, jumping in and being so brave. Only came out of the pool for smoothies! She requested “just ice cream” for lunch a couple times. Kept us entertained playing Paw Patrol in the pool (“Chase is on the case!”) and perhaps my favourite little Stella quirk from this vacation….when we said to her “thumbs up for Mexico!” she would say it back and stick out her pointer finger. He he. She keeps our life so entertaining and joyful! <3
