Today was Angelica's birthday, and to commemorate the occasion, I did a photo session! The tutu and barrette in these photos are courtesy of Sweet Lily Tutus (on Etsy) via a giveaway I won. The embroidered shirt is from on Bowdaciousbaby on Etsy. Boots are a recent win on Ebay. Not the shoes I planned for her to wear, but Angelica's got an independent streak that won't quit...and I thought it looked really cute once I saw them on her.
Funny story about the balloons. Total balloons purchased for this photo session: four. Total balloons actually making it into the photos: two. Initially, I bought three, but one flew away as soon as I walked out of the grocery store, so I ran back in and bought another. Then, as we were walking to the spot where we took the photos, a purple one spontaneously combusted. So then we were down to two.
Also, I orignally picked a different park to do the photos at...and as soon as we pulled in and parked, Angelica burst into tears and said she really wanted to go to a different park. Being her birthday and all, I scrapped my plans and we went where she wanted to go. I think it was a good thing. The lighting in the spot we took these photos was absolutely perfect.
Here are some samples from the collection of photos of my beautiful three year old girl.
