Want to meet the most incredible, sassy, no-nonsense 3 year old? Well, meet Marcella. This is a girl who knows what she wants. Equal parts sweet, inquisitive, funny, and feisty, Marcella kept me on my toes and surprised me when I least expected it. At the end of our time together, she plucked a little yellow flower from the patch and sweetly gave it to me.
When Mom and I were coordinating Marcella's shoot, I had a vision of her in a boho-style fairy garden. I had grand plans of tons of flowers, vines, and a cute little tent, but in true Ohio style, Mother Nature had other plans. It had rained the few days before her session, and even a little on the day of. I had to scrap the tent idea, but still went all in on the location and flowers. In one of Marcella's more sassy moments, she sat on the stool with her back to me, and I snapped a shot of her that stunned even me. Mom said it looked like a painting, and I couldn't agree more.
Today is Marcella's birthday, so please join me in wishing this sweet girl a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
