India’s mom & I have just begun working together, so I have the joy of being able to capture her cuteness whenever I pop in! Like all the best things in life, this little impromptu shoot just happened ~ when I simply couldn’t resist her scrumptiousness any longer!
India Ivy was long awaited, but then she was clearly worth the anticipation! She was named after Shelley’s love of all things bright and beautiful. Her name conjures up sumptuous silk saris, bangles that create the sound of a woman as she walks, the lotus that conquers murky depths, exotic elephants & tigers á la Rudyard Kipling ~ even her wild curls have a glint of Mowgli in them! Ivy is Shelley’s nickname for her husband, Ivan. A name that Indi has now decided she will be known by!
I’m as smitten with her smile as I am with her serious little frown, & I have no doubt that she will indeed follow in her mommy’s footsteps & make the world just a little bit brighter!
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ~ Roald Dahl
