Third time working with the Basalone family and what a joy it was this time around! The first time it was a maternity shoot with Ilker & Franziska for a fun maternity shoot (HERE), and then it was Franziska with her mom and sister (and of course, baby Ela) in downtown Spartanburg (HERE) while they were in town allllll the way from Germany! And this time, little Ela was turning one year old!
This little beauty was/is so flipping adorable that my heart could barely stand it. She always gave me these little scrunched up faces (as you can see below) and when she would smile, you could barely see her little teeth, but it was still so cute.
We didn’t shoot for too long because it was fairly hot that day, but I feel like what we got was so fun and great for Ela’s first birthday. 🙂
Here are some of my faves below!
I always love shooting with this beautiful little family and can’t wait for next time! I always love watching these kids I photograph, grow up. It’s almost like they’re my own! haha. Thank you again, Ilker & Franziska for allowing me to capture more memories for you guys! 🙂
