My Maddie Pants Turns 1!

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

I can’t believe how fast the last year has gone. From being huge and uncomfortable, to welcoming home a new bundle of joy… feeding woes and sleepless nights… wondering what her giggle would sound like, what her teeth would look like, how awesome it would feel when she hugged me back, and her very first steps. All the way to photographing her for her 1-year invitations. It all went by so fast that it still makes me so sad! Unfortunately we can’t stop them from growing up though (trust me- I tried! I even used to ask Trent to push his “stop-growing button” as I pointed to his belly button, but alas, he finally realized it wasn’t working and said he was so sorry!) so we may as well just capture all the moments we can so that next year when they’re graduating and moving out, and the year after that when we’re old and gray, we can look back on our photos and videos and smile (and cry!)

I love my kids SO stinking much that it literally hurts sometimes. And I’m very proud of them (even though they defy my wishes for them to stop growing, lol.)

Here’s the cake-smash session I’d been looking forward to for quite a while. I made almost everything in the photos (even the baby, haha!) I’m still excited that I pulled it off!


I”m actually really surprised she wore the hat!

Chocolate-lined, gigantic cupcake! MMM!

Ok, I’m really not one to toot my own horn, but I still can’t believe I actually made these slippers for her!

She was ever-so-dainty. Honestly, I had to GET her to really dig in!

She was giggling at her big brother, Trent, who was standing behind me cheering her on :-)


These turned out as perfectly as I’d hoped they would. (Thanks to Miller’s for their awesome Luxe cards and amazing prints!)

One nifty thing about photographing newborns is when you get to photograph them when they’re older as well. Baby Jackson came back to see me at his 3-month mark and I got to photograph he and his family. 3 generations, actually! His daddy’s parents were in town from Hawaii (and we shot this in March so they were VERY chilly!) They were great troopers though :-D




How adorable is Kaden?!

Nothin’ better than Mommy smooches :-)

Doesn’t he have amazing eyes?!

3 generations :-D

This little lady was so precious! She was shy at first but she warmed right up. Grandma wanted me to snap some simple photos of her for a Christmas card and then take some of her playing in her play room. She was just as sweet as could be and had the prettiest eyes!
