I met Joe and Cherie when Cherie was pregnant with baby Ella. They were glowing and excited to meet their little girl for the first time. I was so excited to capture this! During the shoot, we did a silhouette and took some pictures under “their tree”. They had pictures under the tree when they were engaged so they decided to keep the tradition up when starting their new family.
When Ella was born, I was lucky enough to capture her newborn pictures. I put her in a wooden crate wrapped in blankets and she had the most adorable cheeks. So for this session, now that Ella is half way to one years old, we put a lot of thought into the props and location. We found ourselves at Quiet Waters Park, under the same beautiful tree and this time, Ella was able to sit up in the crate and smile as her parents made silly noises. I love watching families grow. Joe and Cherie still have the same glowing look on their face and I love watching them interact with Ella. I can’t wait for her one year pictures 🙂 Check out a preview of this sesh.
The Wilsons then and Now 🙂
