Happy 1st Birthday, Ella! New Life Photography by Wendi Riggens

Back in 2011,

I photographed Brittney & Jeff’s wedding.

To date, their engagement session at the airport where Jeff is a pilot is one of my favorites!

Fast forward to 2013,

Baby Ella made her appearance just a few weeks after my daughter was born.

It’s been just amazing to watch her grow!

Brittney & Jeff, thank you so much for trusting me with such special memories all these years, and for driving an hour over here to see me! I can’t wait to snuggle your future babies and see Ella turn into an amazing little girl!
