She’s FIVE…and FIERCE!!!!
Bobbi Elle turning the BIG 5 is bittersweet to me. I just pushed her out yesterday! Where did the time go??? It was not long ago when I shared on this blog my pregnancy announcement: The Sperm Done Met The Egg.
Many of you have been on this journey with me and have seen her growth. Doesn’t it make you feel old watching someone else’s child grow up?? Happens to me all the time!
Turning five is a major milestone. Definitely more for me than her. I mean…she starts real school this year! I no longer have a little girl. I can barely pick her up at this point – she dresses herself and there are major meltdowns if I attempt to choose anything for her. She’s super independent, knows what she wants and will verbalize it in detail for ALL to understand. If you follow her on any of my social media platforms, then you know that she is a spirited child with a huge personality. While she’s still into her Disney Princesses, she’s also now very much into ratchet music. And while I’m sad to see her shed the baby girl vibe that I once knew…I’m so excited to see her coming into her own!
For her birthday photo shoot this year – we went with a big girl grown-ish vibe while still capturing the innocence and sweetness of a being a girl. The scene was Lincoln Road on Miami Beach. We used Laduree’s Bakery as our setting…they were sooo awesome to allow us to shoot her there. Plus – we racked up on macaroons (my fave) and espressos. It was a win-win!
Here are some of my favorite shots from our Breakfast At Tiffany’s inspired photoshoot – thanks to Erica Melissa.
We also did shots of her in a fun look – the halter top rose petal shirt that Bobbi was obsessed with!! Listen…you couldn’t tell her that she wasn’t modeling for Vogue!
Since her birthday falls a few days before Valentine’s Day – I always get my two loves in a few shots together…sharing a few of those here: Sibling Love: Valentines 2018. Also – check out her Mad Hatter Tea Party/Birthday Party!
