Hi...my name is Ellie and I love cinnamon rolls, gummy bears, rain, green grass, fuzzy bunnies and my beeeeeautiful family. But also...I totally love my photography. I love meeting new people and sharing my photography with them. I can be pretty goofy and I'm not afraid to make a fool of myself to get that perfect smile. Take a peek around and don't be afraid to leave some blog love...comments are quite possibly my favorite part of blogging. I love hearing what people think. Oh...and feel free to ask questions too!

The Princess...

So I had a session cancel on me on Friday. Well...I had already scheduled my assistant and had already blocked the time out so we decided to take the Princess out and snap some shots.

I rarely ever do this...dress her up and take her out. People always ask me if the Princess is the most photographed child ever and my response is always a laugh. No yes or no...just a laugh. You might ask yourself why.

I think this picture speaks for itself...



Oh...and this one...



And lets not forget about this one...



I thought somehow that this session would be different...



What...oh what...was I thinking?

But then somehow she loosened up for a few minutes...



(yes...she is in the air, she LOVES jumping and that's all she did for about 15 minutes until Megan pointed out the rat and we left that area immediately)




...and really showed us who she was. A total sweetheart.

This picture is my favorite.



Megan caught this one and lemme tell ya...I'm blowing this one up HUGE for my wall. Her smile is so real and it really shows what a busy, yet happy, little girl she is.



She heard a plane overhead and had to show it to us...



"es?" is her word for everything. We think it stands for this but then again...it could stand for a myriad of other things as well. It's a word we really have to guess with... But whenever she points to the sky and says "es?" we know it's a plane. And then I feel really smart.

The Princess is definitely taking after her dad's side in regards to hair color. All of my sister in laws on both sides are blond and whenever we're out and about with any of them...people automatically assume she's theirs...



But that's ok...I love my little blondie and wouldn't have her any other way.

And those eyes? Didn't touch them in editing...they're completely hers.

So yes...this girl is a mover and a shaker. She definitely keeps me on my toes and gives me my exercise, but she's also an amazingly gentle little girl.



Who has us wrapped completely around her little finger.

These are gorgeous!
BTW, I'm a stalker of your blog. I love it! I've been wondering what Lens you use (Probably more than one). I'm guessing these are L-series lenses! I've been coveting the Canon 70-200 IS lens, but I want to make sure that is the right choice. I love your photos and I would love some input from you! Thanks

Kelsey... Thank you so much for commenting! I love when my "stalkers" comment!

The lens I used for this entire shoot was actually the 50mm 1.8. It's one of my favorite lens for portrait work and is actually on my camera about 90% of the time. I want the 50 1.4 but can't justify the purchase since my 1.8 is just fine. :)

Prime lens (no zoom) produce much sharper pics than a zoom lens does. BUT! That being said...the 70-200 IS is an excellent lens and I love that one as well. :)

Let me know if you have any other questions. I'd be more than happy to help!
