Hey friends, I am going to be real here. This is a hard one for me to write. This Belle Isle photo shoot is very near and dear to my heart. I knew for Aria’s fourth birthday I wanted to capture her sweet and sassy little self in all her glory. The trouble with her birthday being January 1st (yay for a new years baby) is that it can be sooooo cold. I was so unsure about where to take her photos.
This ended up being a spur of the moment trip to my absolute favorite place to take pictures, Belle Isle. It was an unusually warm day and we took full advantage of it! Even though it was so warm out, it was so dang windy! It did add some extra fun to this little photo shoot, but it was intense. We didn’t mind though, we always have such a fun time taking pictures.
Aria and I did away with the posed shots for most of this belle isle photo shoot. I really wanted her to run free. I wanted to capture her own expressions and of course those cute ringlet curls! She jumped and laughed while the wind basically blew her away, totally not an exaggeration that it may have been the most windy day of the year! We had such a great time together and I am so happy with how much these captured Aria and her personality!
To my sweet little Aria. Don’t ever loose this sparkle and fire you hold. I know one day you will do some astonishing things. Even now at four years old you amaze me everyday. I will forever be wishing I could keep you this little. I am so proud to be your mommy and am so honored to guide you everyday. My unicorn and dance loving princess, my mini, I love you so very much. Happiest forth birthday!!
Happy Fourth Birthday Aria!!!
