Happy Birthday, Clyde!

I hope your fifth birthday is as fun as your third birthday was!

On This Day in 2014…

On this day in 2014 (where does the time go!?), Addyson smashed a cake in early celebration of her first birthday!

This one of my absolute favorite shoots to do!

It’s so much fun to capture babies experimenting.

And when they’re covered in goo? Adorable.

This is also when their personalities really start to show, making for absolutely adorable shots.

Happy early birthday, Addyson!!

Perks of My Job ~

The perks are endless – I work my own hours, doing what I love. But my favorite part of my job is easily the amazing people I meet. I have met some incredible people through my lens, like the Peck family.

It has been unbelievable watching these two sweeties grow.

The very first time I saw these two was around Easter last year! It’s absolutely insane how fast they grow up!

I saw them again for family photos in April

And then in June to take some Fourth of July photos before I left to go back home for 6 months while Bobby was in school.

I came back to Kansas to see a sweet (almost) three year old talking up a storm, and this little guy taking his first steps just before his first birthday!

The older they get, the more and more alike they look. I had a blast capturing them for their benchmark birthdays 🙂

Adalena was a princess, and of course Landon got to smash a cake!

..Which he was not interested in at all.

Bath time afterwards was fun though!

We finished our photoshoot by playing hide & seek and saving mom from monsters.

I’m gonna miss these kiddos something fierce! ❤

 

Jordan’s First Birthday

This handsome little ham celebrated his first birthday this weekend!

His mom and dad threw him an awesome birthday bash, so naturally he thanked them by sharing his cake.

Cake smash photos are some of my absolute favorites. I love the looks of wonderment and mischief, especially after the sugar kicks in.
