I love photography. So, the first time I ever laid eyes on Doce Deleite's photos I fell instantly in love. It's like I've found my photography-soulmate, know? I felt that, if my drawings would ever jump out of the paper into real life, they would be exactly like Marcia's and Edu's photos.
Quando chegou o primeiro aninho da Lilla eu não tive dúvidas: quem tiraria as fotos seriam eles! E foi aí que nos conhecemos pessoalmente. A empatia total acho que nem posso dizer que foi surpresa... de certa forma, eu já esperava! Certo que eu ia amar as pessoas por trás daquelas lentes sensíveis.
Alegre eu fiquei de ouvir que eles gostaram do meu trabalho tanto quanto eu gosto do deles! Me senti honrada! Não é gostoso saber que agradamos alguém que admiramos?
When Lilla was about to turn 1, I had no doubt I wanted them here with me to capture every moment. And so whe met. I can't say it was a surprise that I loved them as much as I loved their photos. I was sure the people behind those lens would be as swwet as the photos they take.Happy was I when I heard they liked my job as much as I liked theirs! I felt honored! Isn't it great to please someone you admire?
O dia estava prometido para ser especial. E pra adoçar mais um pouquinho, eu preparei alguns presentinhos com muito amor pros meus amigos:
This year I wanted to make a special photoshoot with Lilla, to celebrate her turning 2. Man, let me say, this second birthday is making me much more nostalgic than the first one. This year passed by so quickly, my baby has grown into a beautiful, kind, energic and smart little girl... With thoughts of her own, wishes of her own... A real person. I wished I could pause this very instant to apreciate it a little longer. She is so fascineting right now, figuring out the world, cute as can be!
The day was sure to be special. And to sweeten it a bit more, I made a couple little gifts for my friends:
The orange thingy is a bunch of home baked cookies I made the day before. And the package is a little pair of short I made for Gael, my friend's baby. The fabric in the back pockets is my design, printed in spoonflower!
Sábado de manhã, um dia lindo! Do jeitinho que eu pedi a Deus!
Então, com vocês, Lilla "a princesa do bosque" (tema da festinha!!) pelos olhos dos meus queridos talentosos amigos:
Saturday morning, a beautiful beautiful day! Just as I wished God would prepare!
So, with you, Lilla the "woodland princess" (the bday party theme!!) through the lens of my dear friends:
Ó os dois juntos! Quero o Gael pra genro!!! Vivo repetindo que é muita sorte nessa vida nascer ruivo e filho de pais fotógrafos, né não??
Look at the 2 cuties together! I want Gael for my son-in-law!!!I keep saying that you can't be luckier than a redhead born to photographers mom and dad! Don't you agree??
Obrigada, queridos amigos Doce Deleite, por me ajudar a dar o tão desejado "pause" neste momento, por registrar a nossa familía como um espelho da nossa felicidade. Vocês moram no nosso coração!
(PS: sobre os vestidinhos eu volto depois pra mostrar melhor tá?)
I keep thanking God again and again, for surrounding us with so much love, from everywhere. May Him, in all His mercy, keep us safe and sound forever in peace, in His lap, the happiest place there is!
Thank you, dear friends, for helping me to pause this moment, for photographing our family like a mirror to our happiness. You live in my heart!(PS: I'll come back with pics of the dresses soon, ok?)
