Angela wanted a special Unveil your Cinderella day with her daughter to celebrate the mother daughter bond they share. Ava is the first girl born in her husband's side of the family in 7 generations! That is something to celebrate, along with the fact that Ava must be the cuddliest little girl I've ever met!
Ava was brought to the portrait time as a surprise by her grandmom who happened to be in town. When grandmom saw what we were up to she sat back to admire the whole process with admiration and love--truly a beautiful thing to behold. Wasn't too long in before grandmom mentally began making plans for when the three of them could do this together.
Angela was so sweet when she realized just before the portrait time that her mom would be in town and wanted to be included. She said, 'we will schedule a time for all of us to go through the whole process together.' She explained she didn't want to just tack her mom on, but instead, she wanted her to be a part of the joy she had in our pre-consult planning meeting where we selected outfits and cast a vision for what we would create that day. "I want her to have that special time too," Angela told me.
As a parent, the historian in me is always wondering, 'which of these days will our kids remember?' Pretty sure this is going to be on Ava's top 10 of her childhood memories! She kept nuzzling her Momma and going in tight for hugs. What a precious time to record in their mother/daughter journey. How fondly they both will look back at this slice of time captured! What most women wouldn't give to have something like this of them with their mothers!
Such a joy to create with you both and I can't wait to see these portraits adorning your walls!
