At 2 years I now see the beginnings of the little girl she is becoming. Strong willed, clever and oh SO FUNNY. She is a personality of extremes. Always challenging me and teaching me. Crazy how much you can learn from these little ones. Crazy and humbling at the same time.
As with her older brother, I decided to make a portrait session with them on their birthdays an annual tradition. So for hers, I made her dress. Only my 2nd dress to date. So no closeups of all the little flaws
I’m hoping to make her birthday dress every year. But we’ll see. She may fight me on that one in another year or two. I would be surprised if she didn’t She has her own ideas on what she wants to do and how she wants to do it already at 2. This session was pretty much just me providing her with a couple of balloons, flowers and a new bear. She ignored the balloons, clung to her bear and massacred the flowers one by one. Ah yes. That’s my girl.
We had her party yesterday. She wore her new dress. Thank God I did her portraits before the party. It was wonderful to watch her watch us showering her with gifts, cake and attention all so curiously. I will share more of her party in another post. Today we are celebrating her with just the family.
