Ella Marseille

Over these past 10 or so months I have been running the idea through my head of "not putting work before your children". As I watch Ella (now toddling about) grow into her own little person, I realize how much she is picking up and absorbing from me and Jelani.

There are days when I find myself intentionally stepping away from work so that I can give her my full attention; and this just tickles her. I see it in the way she relaxes and smiles, even laughs more. She just wants her mommy there beside her, to do life with. And I can understand that.

So, I've decided that Ella is an integral part of my business. She and the rest of my loved ones are the foundation of my creativity. They are my fountain... the ones who keep the inspiration flowing. And while I'm young, I'd like to stop to appreciate all of this.

Anyhow, here are some shots of my beautifully delightful Ella. She is 10.5 months here, with her first birthday just around the corner:
