As a child I always had this fascination with Ballerina’s.  I’m not sure if it was because of how graceful they looked or the stark tutu’s that won me over.  Watching them on the tips of their toes, twirling around.  I had everything from posters, to ceramic ballet shoes, to figurines and dolls.  Needless to say I had a lot of ballet “stuff”.  Although I never was a ballerina myself.  Was always my little wish, and I’m glad it was because I still love the idea.

This little ballerina has come to the studio a few times with her handsome older brother. Master J.  His eyes sparkle.  He accompanied his mom and sister to the studio and tried to make his sister laugh.  You could tell the two have a great little relationship.

Little Miss. V has the most shiny, long black hair I have seen on a little girl. It was just beautiful.  Her sweet little shy self allowed me to look more into her beautiful brown eyes for some more serious poses.  Then we let her twirl and that’s what brought out her smile.  From that point on her sweet innocent smile made her eyes sparkle even more, her brother cheering her on.  Such a cute little sibling set.  I loved it.

So here she is, adorable Miss V in her ballerina outfits and we couldn’t forget to capture her sparkly shoes!

This little darling is close to my heart.  She’s my husband’s youngest niece.  Miss A has an older sister who just adores her. The two are a sweet little pair.

Miss A has beautiful brown eyes and quite the personality – a bit like her Dad!  We did her first birthday photos in her pretty little tu tu and then stripped her down to a diaper cover and pearls!

This was a quick birthday shoot because she wasn’t quite feeling like herself.  I think we got some pretty cute shots.

A lot of times parents try to have kids look at the camera so we can get the child looking directly at me or at my camera.  But sometimes, I just love how leaving them alone and capturing them play with something that intrigues them (in this case pearls), can just make a beautiful, quiet photo.

Enjoy!

Happy Cake Day Miss A. We Love you!www.zeliabesterstudios.com kidswww.zeliabesterstudios.com kidswww.zeliabesterstudios.com kidswww.zeliabesterstudios.com kidswww.zeliabesterstudios.com kidswww.zeliabesterstudios.com kids

This is Bella.  Also known to her Momma and Daddy as Bella Bee.

Bella’s parents have been coming to me for the last 6 years.  I met Jess at a prenatal fitness class she was attending.  We hit it off and I’ve been capturing her beautiful family ever since. Bella’s family is one of my loyal clients.  Her older sisters call me auntie Zelia (I love it).  I’ve captured Jess’ belly with Mia, then her 4 girls (that’s right FOUR), at the newborn stage, the 6 months stage and at one year.

This family chatted about me on the way to the new studio.  They came from an hour away.  While they drove Dad realized this was the last photo shoot they had planned!  When will we see Zelia again? It brought tears to my eyes at the thought that there were no more babies for this family and our regular yearly photos were finished.  I’ve suggested we do yearly family pics so we can see each other because everyone was so disappointed in the thought of “being done”.

Here are Bella Bee’s 1 year photos.  She, like 3 of her other sisters, was not impressed by the cake!
