Cute as a Button

Somewhere between the time we anxiously prepare the rooms of our soon-to-be-born children and a moments blink, they grow up.  They go from being adorable, little people-blobs to personalities with interests and preferences.  

When Zana's beautiful mom reached out to me to document her daughter's 2nd birthday party, I was excited.  Two year olds are some of my favourite people in the world!  They have no filter and no sense of self consciousness.  From the moment they wake up, they just wanna party and that's the vibe I'm all about! When I first met Zana, the first thing she showed me was her favourite place to take photos and her best dance moves. Once we did a bit of dancing and Zana finished posing for some of the formal family portraits with her grandparents, we took a play break so she could show me her favourite toys. The best part of the day was getting to see Zana's amazing personality!  She called me over to let me know that (now that she's a sophisticated 2 year old) she goes to the big potty. She's also really good at getting the party started!  I wish I knew how to get a room full of people to chant my name as I bust out some of my best moves. Plus, she is SO funny, I spent most of the time snort-laughing behind my camera!

Once all was said and done, it was time to get Zana into her party outfit, which proved to be a job for 3 people and a lollipop. Zana finally got to blow out her candles but not before sneaking a swipe of the frosting!

My dearest Zana, I hope you enjoy being a free spirited two year old!  Please, never change! :-)
