Little Monster


Maybe this post should be titled “Little Teething Monster” because I think Hayden’s 2 bottom teeth are close to appearing. I took upwards of 50 photos of him in this costume and he had his “paws” in his mouth in most of them! I must admit I stole the adorable blue monster costume idea from two other photographers’ babies. I just fell in love with the costume and when I called BRU to see if there was any left, there was just ONE and in Hayden’s size! So I took that as a sign that it was meant to be.:-)You’ll also notice that Hayden is SITTING! My baby is growing up waaaay too fast!

PS. Like the new blog?

What cute pictures!! I still haven’t picked out a costume for Andrew. The Procrastinator to the rescue!

The new blog looks great! I can’t wait to see more pictures!

Elle — I’ve been a long time admirer of your photography! I am a mother of two boys as well (4yrs & 5 months) and have followed your story for quite some time. I just wanted to comment that your photos are beautiful (it helps that you have beautiful children too!). The color, the lighting… just amazing. You’ve inspired me to try and take better pics of my little ones! :)

Tamara - October 8, 2008 - 2:27 PM

You have done an amazing job with the photos

Candace - October 8, 2008 - 2:45 PM

I love the new blog! I found it!

Hollie - October 8, 2008 - 5:18 PM

I found you! I love the new look. Too bad I am all the way over here. Maybe when I get back stateside I can come for a shoot. My MIL lives in the Dallas area, I don’t think it is that far for me to go???? The monster outfit is so cute. I also forgot to mention that I love the story board you did of Hunter (Autumn), I just love that one.

Yaheee!! Pictures of Hunter! :) This is SO cute!

Michele - October 7, 2008 - 10:27 PM

I love the concept of a storyboard – it is like professional digiscrapping – but without the useless fluff (sorry – not a scrapper). It helps when your subject is a handsome little man!!

Ami - October 8, 2008 - 8:32 PM

Beautiful lighting!

New Logo

I made my new Ella Bella Photography logo this weekend! It’s pretty basic but I needed something fancier than the boring gray strip I use on every photo. Say it with me “No more ugly gray strips!” I wanted to debut my new logo on a fun photo from the twin’s session a couple weeks ago. I like how this photo turned out. It has kind of a surreal feel to it.

It looks much more elegant and professional. I like the new look. No more ugly gray strips.

Jessica - September 22, 2008 - 3:35 PM

I forgot to tell you earlier that I really like your new logo! Very pretty font!! :)

Michele - October 7, 2008 - 10:28 PM

Loving the new logo – professional and classy!

Awww…. such a cute monkey!

The Pascua's - September 21, 2008 - 8:26 PM

Your photos are gorgeous and so professional!!! I would hire you if I lived in Texas :)
It helps that you have such a cutie as your subject too!

Stephanie - September 22, 2008 - 3:23 PM

Finally de-lurking to say, amazing photographs and what a cutie!!! I too would hire you if I lived in Texas. Whatever did you use for the smooth, white surface???

Michele - October 7, 2008 - 10:29 PM

You have just inspired me to take nakie pictures of my daughter before she gets too old – baby butts must be immortalized on photo paper. It is the law.

I only wish we lived in Texas so we could hire you!

Erica Oliver - October 7, 2008 - 10:56 PM

YAY!! I love it, beautiful pictures!! Do you want to do family pictures of us while we are in Texas? I am still searching the world to find a photographer who can wrangle my two girls into a picture together!

Here is an example of a template I made to put yesterday’s photos of Hayden into a fun storyboard. These storyboards can be enlarged to any size and are mounted on styrene board for lasting durability. They can be hung on your wall using beautiful satin ribbon in a coordinating color. I can make templates out of 2 or more photos from your photo session. If you’re interested, please ask me about it!
