1st Birthday

Oh let me just ask how cute is baby Oliver! Geesh!! He is probably one of the most pleasant babies to be around, never once did he fuss, get mad, or do anything but smile and make faces at us! Although his parents say he is like a baby tornado at home! ( I may not believe them... LOL)

Becca and Freddy are some of my favorite Tiptoe people, they are like a comedy act, and have me cracking up every time! I have photographed their beautiful daughter Delaney, they had their wedding with us, their gender reveal, Oliver's newborn pics and now his one year! I love watching their family grow with Tiptoe!! 🙂 It's pretty amazing to be there for all these HUGE events in their lives!  Can't wait to meet baby "Jan" soon!!! (There is a big funny story about new babies nickname that of course had me cracking up... ask them about it!)

Check out baby Oliver in his newborn Harry Potter theme then all grown up with it again!! SOOOOO cute!! I just love him!!

This little guy was such a joy to photograph.  He wasn't into it at first, but quickly warmed up to me.  He loved sticking his tongue out and was all smiles when it was time for cake.  The amazing, It's A Piece of Cake! made his smash cake and if you know me then you know that I get ALL my cakes from her. Hands down the best around!!  I highly recommend.  Anyways, enjoy a few teasers from his session.

We have captured many milestones with this amazing couple.  When they were seniors in high school, to their engagement photos, their wedding day, maternity, newborn, and now Mason's one year session.  Man does time fly by.  It has been such a blessing to be apart of their journey and I look forward to watching their little family grow.  Here are a few teasers from Mason's birthday session.  My gosh...what a little cutie he is.  I mean look at those big baby blues!!

One of my favorite families came in for a family/first birthday shoot this week. And boy oh boy did I fall in love with these pics!  They definitely show this fams personality!  These girls love everything country, from their little farm with their cows, to their pony, and of course those styling cowgirl boots.  Gahhh!! I love it!

So for the first birthday portion of the shoot mom and I had gotten our ideas together and had some props that we wanted to incorporate into the shoot, but little miss Sage wasn't having all that. As soon as those little bare feet hit the gravel, she was all about it! And I love that Mom embraced it for what it was, and let her little girl get just as messy as she wanted because after all that is who she is!!

Here are some of my faves from the day! Enjoy guys!!
