Yesterday was a first for me, I was invited to capture all the fun and specialness of a first birthday. A few months back I took some family photos of this sweet, sweet family. When they contacted me to take pictures of their little mans first birthday party--- I was so very excited.
There is something extra special about a first birthday. Don’t get me wrong, I think all birthdays are reason to celebrate. However, the first birthday, it holds a special place in “milestones.” To be honest, I think it is more of a milestone for the parents. They have survived a whole year as parents, they have survived the first year. A year filled with newness and learning… Learning about each other and often times even more about yourself. Its a year filled with sleepless nights, sleepless days, crying, laughing, sweet moments, doubt-filled moments, and growth.
So, CONGRATULATIONS Josh and Melisa… you did it! You have an adorably sweet little man, and are great, loving parents. His party was everything a first birthday should be… filled with family and friends, fun, and of course CAKE!
Happy Birthday Jonah, you are sweet, adorable and getting oh, so big! I pray your second year is filled with more great memories and milestones.

This post is about a week late, but I got caught up in all the Christmas excitement. However, more on that will come later… right now, we will celebrate life! It was so fitting that on the eve of Christmas Eve, I was able to spend some time with a very sweet little family and their newest member, Soren. It was a true blessing.
I am so glad my path crossed with this family. We have littles who are so close in age, Hannah is just a few months older than Soren’s big sister, Adda. And let me tell you, she is the sweetest. Soft spoken, sweet, and oh so darling. Hannah and I both love having her over for play dates. Now, with the coming of Soren, I envision many play dates that include the little brothers too. So very fun having littles who are so close in age and same gender at that!
And their mom, she is amazing. One of those people who you almost feel like you’ve known forever. She is honest, positive, and so very welcoming. That’s one of the best parts of play-dates for me as a mom. Getting to talk to another mom. Hannah, she has quiet the vocabulary, but its still not the same. Matt, he’s very supportive and can listen well, but its still not the same. Another mom, they get it. They live it. And there is just something so comforting about that. I have loved my time getting to know Ashley better in the past few months, she is a sweet friend and has been such a blessing. I look forward to the prospect of many more mommy and little play-dates.
Boom Family, you are a blessing to so many. Thank you for welcoming me into your home and this special time in your lives! Adda, thanks for being such a great friend to Hannah! You are already a great big sister. Baby Soren, welcome to the world. You are so sweet, and my little man cannot wait to build a friendship with you.
I figured some red and white pictures were necessary… since Christmas photos are oh, so fun!
