Cleveland Family Photographer | Ari's Communion Day
I remember when I first met Ari a few years back. Her mama was expecting baby girl number 2 & we went outside for a fun maternity session together. It was colder than expected which is sometimes hard for little ones (& me haha) but the images turned out gorgeous. Ari was a tad shy when we started & wasn't feeling the idea of leaving the warm stroller. We had to work our magic and get creative. Ari LOVED unicorns so we decided to look for them during our session together. It really helped her open up & get her engaging with me. Yelling & giggling "I SEE ONE BEHIND THAT BUSH" as I captured all those big smiles from her. Now, years later, she has grown into this AMAZING little girl & is celebrating her first communion. Can we take a moment to enjoy the sight of this stunning dress on her?!? WOW.
"It's Just Allergies"
As our time together came close to an end for the day things got a little emotional. It's so hard for me to not be touched when I see this family because we've shared so many special moments together over the years. Seeing her turn into this intelligent, beautiful, fun-loving person is so rewarding. Her mom & I could not stop getting all teary eyed & I joked saying "It's just my allergies". Watching her hold her mother & grandmother's rosery so tight & grinning was such an experience to witness.
I am so proud of the person Arianna has become & can't wait to see where life takes her next. She will do amazing things & I am so blessed to be apart of it.
