Caldwell is 1!

No doubt you all remember my first shoot with the adorable Caldwell! If you need reminding, you can see it here. I was delighted when his mom Brooke asked me to shoot his first birthday party! Brooke did an amazing job with the decorations and theme (elephants!). It was super cute! They also had a fun pool set up for the kiddos. Caldwell had grown so much and was doing all sorts of new things, and it was fun to see him growing! Here are my favs..

The cake was an elephant that matched exactly the invitation! Adorable!

Cute Boots!

Gift time!

Caldwell's favorite item seemed to be these little yellow duckies:-)

There is a lot I like about this shot.. first the outfit says "Dad + Mum = Me", and then I love that you can't even see Caldwell because he is hidden behind the box and wrapping:-)

Because one year olds can't really open gifts.. Caldwell had willing helpers!

One of my most favorites of the day! The Destruction!

Cake time!


Probably my favorite picture ever!

"Get that camera out of my face!"

The aftermath..

Thanks so much for allowing me to share in this special day! Hope your first year is full of great things, Caldwell!

Wow! It has been forever since I posted anything! How boring! I have now caught up on a bunch of editing and have some pictures to put up! Yay! Last week I photographed baby Luca! He is a fun little boy that I have had the privilege of watching once a week for the past couple of months. He is such a fun little guy, and I was really excited when his mom asked if I would do some portraits of him. She really wanted them to be environmental portraits... to capture him in his day to day. I love doing these shoots. You get to capture real life, without trying to make an active crawler sit in one spot with a backdrop! Yes, his crawling means I am on the go too, but it's so fun! Anyway, here are some of my favorites.

I loved this bench...and so did he!

He wasn't quite as excited about the hammock though..

Just a little light reading...

Love this one:-)

Luca loved the camera... so much so that he wanted to get it!

checking something out..

See.. it's a stick!

I am going to get you!

It's the "all done" frown. haha
