Elliette's 'Crowning Ceremony' Portraits





Elliette Maree is having her 'Crowning Ceremony' very soon. We are all so excited about this first for our oldest daughter. I must thank my friend, Lee Cooper, for this beautiful addition to our set of family traditions. Our newly added tradition celebrates when one of our children accepts the Lord Jesus. We are planning to hold this 'Crowning Ceremony' after Elliette is baptized. I can't wait to share with you all the details of the tradition.

I'm sad that I'd never heard of this tradition when our oldest son accepted Jesus and was baptized. But of course, we're making up for lost time! The tradition is just as exciting for boys as it is beautiful for girls! I'll be sharing the male version of this tradition soon!

These photos are portraits taken of Elliette in her 'Crowning Gown'.

Hey, the 'Hairku' of when we did this style for Elliette was in June. Here's the link to the blog post w/ more pics. It's REALLY easy to do. I think it's easier than yarnbraids. I think twists are easier than braids!

Oh my goodness, Elliette is growing up so beautifully. And a big WhoopWhoop to Elliette accepting Christ.
