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.
My niece Livi turned 6 recently. Six! I can hardly believe Little Livi Loo is such a big kid. She has become such a smart, funny, beautiful and sweet little girl, and I'm so proud she's my goddaughter. We are blessed to have this sassy thing in our lives. We love our Livi Loo!
I have been photographing this beautiful little girl since she was growing in her momma's belly over a year ago, and she has been such a pleasure to work with. This has been the first time she's ever been unhappy during a session, and it was not her fault. Poor baby just wasn't feeling great, and you could tell she wasn't her normal, happy self. She did okay most of the time in her mommy and daddy's arms, but the second they put her down, the tears started flowing. I feel bad that we didn't get to fit in all of the beautiful ideas that her mommy came up with, but next time (which is next month :) ). Glad Baby Girl was feeling back to normal for her beautiful Evelyn in Wonderland birthday party! Happy 1st Birthday, Beautiful Girl! Can't wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you!
