Ella gazes at all the new faces and feels shy. She grasps Tutu’s hand for comfort as they rush off to begin exploring. A girl and her beloved rag doll on a shopping trip to the mall.Ella and Tutu at the MallPhotographs by Pittsburgh photographer, Laura Mares, of a girl and her beloved rag doll.

First, they choose to watch a movie. They peer at all the options and Ella’s hand runs over the movie posters until she finds the perfect one… “Finding Dory.” Laura-Mares-Photography-Pittsburgh-Child-Photographer-Tutu-32 wmLaura-Mares-Photography-Pittsburgh-Child-Photographer-Tutu-32 wm

Ella and Tutu quickly run into the movie theater and Mommy purchases tickets and a big bag of popcorn. Together they dive in as the soft buttery substance stains their faces. One look at each other and they burst into giggles. Laura-Mares-Photography-Pittsburgh-Child-Photographer-Tutu 14 wmLaura-Mares-Photography-Pittsburgh-Child-Photographer-Tutu 14 wm

Next, they gaze at the huge piles of candy on the counter. They stare in amazement. It seems as if every candy under the sun is there. Mommy chides them that the movie is about to start so they rush into the theater to find the best seat. Ella and Tutu sit hand in hand as the movie unreels.

After the movie they dash off to play a giant version of Tutu’s favorite game- Connect Four! They are winning as Ella grabs the final piece that they need.

Their final destination is the toy store. They inspect all the toys, and pretend to be detectives with the magnifying glass.

Tutu takes a brief nap before it’s time to leave. Laura-Mares-Photography-Pittsburgh-Child-Photographer-Tutu-20 wmLaura-Mares-Photography-Pittsburgh-Child-Photographer-Tutu-20 wm

 As they walk out together, Ella really wants to lounge on the massage chairs with Tutu. They laugh as the machine rumbles.

Finally, they leave the mall together and Tutu waves goodbye.
