I had the great pleasure of photographing Danyelle and her adorable family in my store last week. It was all for Mickalie’s 2nd birthday!
This wall was just perfect because her favorite color is also purple!
Her shirt that her mom Danyelle made was also so cute. But don’t take my word for it — just look:
And for anyone who had ever been a parent to a 2-year-old … this is so true!! They do have a blast while we pull our hair out! Haha!
We had dreams of finding an ice cream parlor, but it was sooo cold outside we moved it to my store, Kaleidoscope. I am completely obsessed with the exposed brick wall (and Mickalie’s cuteness)!
I also want to delve into Mickalie’s name, which is so unique! Her dad’s name is Mick, so the name Mickalie is a tribute to him! How adorable, right?!
But wait — there’s more!
Mickalie’s middle name is Danyelle after her mom. Then, her mom’s name is Danyelle Kimberly. Danyelle’s mom’s name is Kimberly Susan. And then, Kimberly’s mother’s name is Susan! Danyelle told me she wanted to keep the middle name chain going. I just thought that was the coolest thing!
Danyelle and Mick have been together for 9 years and married for 5. Awwwww!
So, in this shot, we originally wanted to hang Mickalie upside down and let them kiss in the middle, buuuut she really wanted up on Daddy’s shoulders — so we went with that instead! Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches! 🙂
Mickalie loves anything to do with horses. She loves My Little Pony and Spirit! She even did a trick for me at the store with one of the toy riding horses there. It’s a trick from Spirit that involves her standing on the horse and picking up one of her legs! It’s super cute!
I can also tell you this little girl loves Oreos! But at least she shared with me, too!
I am excited to keep watching her get bigger and bigger! She and my youngest daughter, Luna, are friends. I see some cute photoshoots in their future!
