Being happy doesnt mean that everything is perfect.

It means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections...

Our little poser... she melts my heart

A while ago, a lovely lady called Melissa from Memories Of Mine Photography contacted me. She had come across Ellie's blog, and also 4P Aussie Kidz. She wanted to do something 'nice' for us, she wanted to photograph Ellie for us. Up until now I have never had any professional shots done of Ellie, as I always had an excuse...

I wanted to wait until she had her cleft lip repaired.. Tick
I wanted to wait until she had an artificial eye... Tick
I wanted to wait until she was on a better seizure med, so she didn't look zoned out... Tick
I wanted to wait until she was sitting... Tick

You get my picture, I was always putting it off... for reasons that I thought would prevent us getting the perfect picture...

When this opportunity arose, I had no other reasons. I had no other excuses. Why not? I thought.

When we arrived at the location, we were worried weather Ellie would sit still long enough, as she is constantly bum shuffling, making it hard to get a photo, let alone many photos...

Ellie was brilliant. She sat still, she smiled for the camera.... she was actually posing for some shots. The end result..... BLEW US AWAY.

Ellie's eyes shone.. Her skin was so pale & perfect... Her smile melted my heart... This was our girl, and she was captured perfectly... Thank you Melissa

Here are just some of the shots.... Enjoy

  5. Ellie is absolutley beautiful! I love them all!

  6. Oh those pictures made my day- they were delightful!

  7. I haven't been in blog land for a while so, just popped in for a read. Ellie was a perfect Model, if all kids behaved like her and were as happy as her on a photo shoot my job would be so easy.
    I'll photograph her anytime.

  8. these are very beautiful shots, her joy is so priceless and adorable, I am glad I am able to see her through this blog and through Liss's blog.
