This shoot was not planned, nor did I intend to blog about it, but when I saw all the happiness in the images I couldn’t let it go…
This is Elri, the little 1 year old girl of good friends of ours, Jaco and Annaline. Jaco and I went to school together and we were also good friends at school. Over the years we kept in contact, not much, but we knew about each other’s lives.
You know those people that when you see them, everything just goes on and you can talk about anything and everything as if you saw each other yesterday? Well, these two are those kind of friends.
And now they have a beautiful little girl who jumped right into my heart!
If you know me, you would know that my camera is never far… I just couldn’t help myself in taking a few photos of Elri while she was playing in the water. She was shivering later on, but just didn’t want to hear anything about getting out of the water!
You can see the happiness in each photo!
On top of the cute photos she has the most beautiful sparkly eyes.
I loved taking these photos of her, for her mom and dad and family to always have these memories of 1 year old Elri.
