It is always a pleasure to see Antonio, who is now a whopping 4 years old!  OMG, where does the time go!  And he’s a young man of varied interests: gardening and lawn care, laughing with Mom and Dad, and of course, music!  He totally rocked out on the guitar, while singing, and doing moves that even Bruce Springsteen would envy.  Next session, maybe we’ll break out that drum set.

This was a glorious on-location mini session on the most fabulous Cleveland weather day of the year so far.  We spent maybe 5 minutes on the “portrait” part and the remainder of the half hour session just having fun and soaking up some sun.

A tricky session to narrow down, Antonio does such a great job in front of the camera, being Antonio.

It was a real thrill to spend more time with the adorable and precious Miss Ella.  You remember this super sweetie from her holiday mini session last November (and if not, you can see it here).   This time she’s pretty in pink and smashing some cake to celebrate turning the big O-N-E.

I love the simple, modern styling of the studio-look images: a clean vivid pink backdrop, and the white and pink (with some sparkle and tulle) theme of Ella’s clothing.  We fancied it up with some homemade paper fans for the background of the cake smash time.  But the best part is that adorable round face and those big eyes!  Oh what a cutie!!

This was a mini session, and Ella really gave us lots of expressions in the jammed packed 1/2 hour of fun.  I look forward to many more sessions with her, and her adorable fashion sense!
