Confetti Fun

Back in September, E's cousin Breanna who writes at The Thing About Joy blog came over and wanted to take some fun confetti pictures for a new project she was working on. After we took all of our photos for her project, we let Ellie get in on the confetti fun. I loved the pictures I got of Ellie and I can't wait to try this again! This first photo is a keeper for sure. I'm thinking I might print a copy for her bedroom :)

I love the simplicity of these next two. Just a baby having fun!

This one I liked because it captures the "cleanup" efforts. We'd sweep it in a pile and she'd sit and play with it.

 No earth shattering thoughts in this post. Just a couple of cute pics of the kiddo. Hope you guys enjoyed them :)

Minnie Mouse Photoshoot

I've had so many things I wanted to post about lately, but we've had a lot going on.
My laptop that had all my editing software on it broke, my grandfather died, and our house had some plumbing issues that caused some flooding. If it's not one thing then it's another.

Some of the stuff I'm planning on posting about as soon as I have the time to sit down and breathe, but for now I wanted to share these sweet photos from a recent photoshoot.

This kind family let me take their photos on their little one's first birthday. I'm so honored to have had the chance to document this precious little girl! Her mama was so organized with all of her cute Minnie Mouse clothes and decorations! Isn't the birthday girl such a cutie?!

Bath Time

If you know Ellie, you know that our little girl loves taking a "tub tub". Our new house has some renovations that need to be done in the guest bathroom before Ellie can use the tub, so we have been using the shower exclusively for the past few months. When we went to visit Z and K for the PAX South (video game conference), Ellie tested out their fine bathing facilities and I snapped a few photos to share with you guys.

I read a tip once about photographing your children that said to photograph the small things. The things that change and are soon forgotten. I thought this was a perfect time to practice this.
Her hair right now is super thin and fine, but she's getting these darling ringlets in the back of her head.  I love it! I really want to document this baby fuzz before she has a full head of hair and gets that big kid look that toddlers possess.

I love how sweet she looks with her hand crammed in her mouth. Hehe.

Her little personality is really starting to shine. She gets tickled about something and gives you the cutest little smile. I just love making her smile! The one on the left is her smile when you tell her to smile and the one on the right is just her unabashed joy at enjoying the water.

I have to remind myself to post photos even if they aren't great technically because the ones that capture her personality are the ones I'll treasure even more than "The Perfect Shot". And really, isn't that what photography is all about?

Monkey Bread

My mom used to make this delicious breakfast bread called Monkey Bread every once in awhile. It's super rich and super easy to make. I had a craving for it and decided to recreate my childhood memories. I snapped some pics so I can share this yummy treat with you guys! ^_^

It's the easiest recipe ever! Paula Dean would be so proud of my over-the-top butter useage. :P
The sugar to cinnamon ratio is kind of just a guess, but I like it with a lot of cinnamon. Don't be afraid of the cinnamon!

This. Is. Amazing. You gotta try it! Just keep in mind that this is super unhealthy, so it should probably be an indulgence and not something you eat a lot.
^^^Preaching to myself here too.^^^

Here's the I said easy peasy!

Feel free to pin this and share with your friends! Monkey Bread should be shared ;)
