Gorgeous Ella came in not long after her first birthday to show off her new standing skills and she even got to model some new studio outfits for me.  She was such a star and lots of fun to photograph 🙂

Linda & Bella | Family Portraits | Wellington Glamour Photography

Mother & Daughter sessions are some of my absolute favourites.  It’s so much fun to bring the girls in, get them made up, pick out some glam frocks and then spend time capturing them together.  Something they’ll be able to look back on years from now and treasure!

This session was Linda’s way of celebrating Bella becoming a teenager this week.  It was pretty clear from the moment they walked in the studio they have an amazing relationship.  They’ve been on huge overseas adventures together and with their fair share of challenges, their bond is super strong.  But despite Bella being the one turning 13, Linda believes she is more the child and Bella acts like mum!

Bella is gorgeous now, but  I can definitely see glimpses of the stunning woman she will become in a few more years, can you?  Linda wasn’t so sure about being in the photos herself – but I managed to convince her we’d have a good time and she needed to exist in photos for Bella.  Upon seeing the results, she knows she made the right choice!

These guys were so much fun to photograph, and both of them are gorgeous.  Happy 13th Birthday Bella!!!  You’re entering a whole new exciting chapter in life!  You won’t remember me in 20 years time, but I hope you will have beautiful memories of this special day with your Mum 🙂

Thanks again to Keryn Ward Makeup Artist for her help on this shoot!

This was a wonderful session of firsts – not only was it Ava’s first birthday celebration, but it was also her very first experience with cake and balloons!

A little unsure at first, I think she warmed to the idea of the whole thing in the end!
