One Year Photos

I've been holding on to these sweet shots since the babe's first birthday and I just had to share a few.
I wanted the baby's first year photos to be easy, sweet, reflective of our life and in our new house.
Many, many thanks to the amazingly sweet and patient Christa Rene Photography for rolling with the punches and snapping some of my most treasured photos to date.

when you try to pose a baby....

a sneak peek of our bedroom! 

and our playroom, too! 

Ok, I get that not everyone wants to have a photo shoot on the floor of their kitchen, but dumping out that cabinet makes my babe so happy - why wouldn't I want to document that in all of it's crazy glory? He started emptying the cabs and we pulled up some floor and sweet Christa snapped away.
 It might be weird, but these are my fave pics!  

Look at that determined little expression....

Our life, captured in one single snap 

Many of you have asked how I choose my photographers so tomorrow's Asked and Answered will address just that!

Thanks for indulging me in the photo onslaught, I owe you one! 


  1. Love seeing G in those candid shots and love the fact that J has goldfish in his hands.....bribery at it's finest!
