. Elena .

Mar 13, 2008 Portrait
during my recent visit to pittsburgh, i had the extreme pleasure of photographing Elena. i have photographed her before (& some of her baby images grace my website!) -- however, Elena is no longer a baby -- that's for sure! this vibrant 3 year old is full of life, laughter, love & is most definitely one of the cutest, sweetest "big" girls i know! i also especially loved documenting the incredible relationship between Elena & her Mother, Gwen. the morning spent with them was one of the highlights of my trip!

please note, if you would like to see even more images, be sure to check out the slideshow at the end of the post!

Gwen & Elena, thank you again for such a wonderful morning. it is always SUCH a pleasure to see you & your beauty-FULL family --- I treasure every single time. documenting Elena at such a neat age is so special to me. thank you for inviting me into your home & for always, always, always treating me like family! i hope you enjoy the sneak peek below... more to come soon! for now, i am sending you my love through these images of the ever-so lovely Elena.
