Dornzedla {Elf Smash Session} | Las Vegas Maternity, Newborn, Baby & Family Photographer

We have been keeping this elf-tastic session a secret for a while now, and I’m SO thrilled to share Dornzelda’s Buddy the Elf themed spaghetti smash. Dornzelda is a December baby. Her newborn photos were Christmas themed, and her mother wanted to stay with the holiday theme. Dornzelda’s father, Richard, is stationed abroad and is really missing his little girl this Christmas. Her mom, Della, wanted to surprise him with a special Christmas card and birthday photoshoot. Since he loves the movie, Elf, she asked me to plan a Buddy the Elf spaghetti smash session for Dornzelda. Y’all, I was jumping up and down when she made this request. Really?! Seriously?!?! I LOVE Christmas and “smiling’s my favorite!” I’m in!

We didn’t want Dornzelda’s outfit to look like your everyday Halloween variety costume, so instead of scouring the internet I went to a trusted felt artist, Julie Bourdages. She is the creative behind The Felted Attic Prop Shop. I knew that Julie would take the vision that we had, and create a quality baby costume with all of the details. She did it! Right down to the embroidered trim, Dornzelda’s outfit looked exactly like Buddy the Elf’s.

Dornzelda was completely up for this whole idea too. Spaghetti is one of her favorite things to eat, and she dove right in. I’d say she has advanced noodle slurping skills for an 11-month-old. After getting her started, we added a couple of Buddy’s favorites, sprinkles and marshmallows. The marshmallows were also a hit, and had Dornzelda blissfully enjoying her first sugar fix.

Since we wanted to wait for Richard to receive his Christmas card first, Della and I have been holding onto this secret for a few months. It was completely worth the wait to send a special surprise. You can see Richard’s response in the video below, and it’s clear that this little girl puts a smile on his face.
