Being a photographer who is also a mom (aka momtog) can be overwhelming sometimes because you can get reaaaalllly behind on your own family's photos. At this point, I still have all of 2014 and 2015 to edit and *hopefully* get into albums. My goal is to get it all done before baby arrives in February....yikes! So I've buckled down, and I finally got our daughter's 1st birthday party from last year edited. She's already had her 2nd birthday party, and even though they were in the same location, I'm kind of embarrassed by the quality of last year's photos. But the memories were what really count.
We had an Alice in Wonderland theme, and my very talented grandmother sewed her dress to look identical to the one in the movie. We had a royal tea party, and my husband the Mad Hatter performed magic tricks for the kids. And since Little One's birthday is just before Halloween, we made it a costume party, which turned out awesome! What a lucky girl to have so many people in her life who love her. We appreciated everyone who came to celebrate her first crazy year of life, and what a joy to celebrate her health after a bumpy ride.
I can't believe what a baby she was just one short year ago. It makes me want to hold onto her a little tighter for fear that she'll grow before my very eyes.
