It somehow became a tradition for me to snap a few portraits of Ellie after a fresh DIY bang trim. I know that the years are numbered where she would let me give her an ugly home haircut even though I think she can rock an ugly haircut like no other. These trims also happen every few months–just enough time to perceive some growth and subtle changes in personality through photos. I guess what I’m really trying to do by taking these portraits is to stop time. Parents, you feel me?
