Yep. This month wins.
My baby became a little girl this month...on film.
With more spunk and personality than Paul and I combined.
And she's somehow also the sweetest...
I've made no secret that the newborn phase and first year baby phase were not a personal best for me. I struggled on every level for way longer than what felt "normal."
It's hard for me to remember that phase now. Just like everyone said they would, those days have faded into the background. I know though that grace and help and love kept us going. And now, we're fueled by those three things plus our crazy bond. She's my girl. I'm her mama. It's like magic. Actually screw that. It's like motherhood.
Love you, Ellerie Eve.
These photos are part of my "film project" where I take a roll of film of Ellerie each month. You can see all of these posts here. I shoot with an old film camera similar to this and this lens. I have been using Kodak Portra 400 film. I have my photos printed at Nelson's Photo Supply. These images are un-retouched digital scans of the film.
