PHOTO SHOOT FIT FOR A PRINCESS; BOBBI TURNS 4

This is a very late post…like 8 months late…crazy how this year is almost over and I’m sharing photos from a February shoot…but this is too good to let it go by any longer…When Bobbi turned 4 – she was all into her Disney princesses!  She wanted a princess party, a princess themed bedroom, all of the princess dresses – you see where I’m going here.  So it just made sense that for her 4th birthday shoot – we captured the love of her princesses and fairy tales.  Speaking of that princess party…man…she got more like a Royal Celebration!

Linking up with Erica Melissa for another photo session – I knew we were going to capture some beauties…we shot her in her element reading books and being in front of the mirror…as well as being in some of her favorite princess dresses.

Here are some of my faves!

Bobbi has a rack of princess dresses…and like every little girl..playing dress up is one of her fave past times. I found this cute clothing rack on Amazon!

BOBBI ELLE: A LADY AND HER CROWN PHOTO SHOOT

Bobbi Elle turned 3!!! And it was time for another photo shoot.  Shooting photos of a toddler is NO easy feat – but this year – we hit the jackpot!!  I’m not sure if its because she’s getting older or she’s used to having a camera in her face.  Either way – Miss Bobbi was on point and ready for her big day.  She allowed us to go thru 5 different looks (styled by Toni Lowes) and we got thru it all in about an hour and a half.  Thanks to the amazing eye of one of my fave photographers – Erica Rodriquez – there were a ton of awesome shots – and I had the tough job of narrowing it down to these:

BOBBI ELLE GOES ROCKER CHIC FOR TWO!

Bobbi Elle is turning TWO!!!!  And for her birthday this year – I decided to hire a photographer to do a photo shoot, capturing her personality and her funny ways.  We attempted to do a smash cake photo shoot when she turned one – and it was a disaster.  After an hour – this was the best shot we got!

Mainly because my husband was the one to shoot it – and to her – Daddy is Daddy, not the photographer…which makes it hard.  So we decided to go a different route for the second go round and we got amazing results.  Once again Erica Rodriquez of Mau Loa Photography nailed the shoot.  We decided to shoot her at Main Street in Miami Lakes – going with a rocker chic look…here’s a few of my fave shots:

BOBBI ELLE – THE FIRST YEAR

This past year has gone by way too fast…
It seems like yesterday that I was plugged up to machines and IV’s (sneaking M+M’s in my mouth)…counting down the moments that I would welcome our little girl into the world.  When they told me I was 9 centimeters – I burst into tears because I knew it was just a matter of time.  And I was scared.  Life would never be the same – and there was no going back.  That Monday, Feb 11, 2013 at 5:28PM – my life changed forever.  For so long, I struggled with what my purpose was on earth – and over the course of this year – it was revealed to me…and that was to become a MOM.  I was so scared and nervous of what it meant to become a MOM…the responsibilities, the decisions, no days off…and now I can’t imagine my life any different.  Even tho I always knew I wanted children, it was never something I daydreamed of – or put on my vision board.  But God had his own vision for me and I am so grateful that he chose ME to shepard the life of a little angel named Bobbi Elle Margaret Metelus. Life has new meaning for me and for that, I am eternally grateful.
