Recently I had the great pleasure of meeting this little guy. Now, I think we can all just go ahead and agree that the degree of cuteness we’re looking at here is just off the charts.
I was privileged to get to take his family photos on his actual first birthday! What an honor for me! And I came to the conclusion that it’s pretty good to be 1-year-old… particularly good to be THIS 1-year old! Toys, cake, adoring grandparents and parents, dogs, wagons – such fun!
Thanks guys! I had a blast and I can’t wait for you to see the rest of your images and then decorate your home with them!!
It’s going to be hard for me to not gush over the wonderful time I had hanging out with these guys for this family photo shoot. This is a fun family. Guys, this is the family who’s house you want to get stuck at during the snowstorm! It’s the cool house! This is the place to be!
You can tell from these photos that they love each other and have a great time together; and that they’re all pretty taken with their newest addition – little Raylan. And who wouldn’t be – come on – those cheeks, that cowboy hat?! Off the charts adorable.
Thank you guys – I can’t wait to do it again soon!!
I had the joy of taking photos of this sweet girl last weekend, right before her 1st birthday party. I love this age, because they’re more curious than shy. One year olds are full of wonder and appreciation for the little things around them – rocks and sticks are as interesting as balloons and cupcakes (and all are equally likely to end up in their mouths!). Mae is so good-natured and impossibly cute. And don’t get me started on how much I love chunky baby-thighs! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH! S & L – you have an amazing, beautiful baby and I am so grateful that I got to share in this milestone with you!
Thank you! Enjoy your sneak-peek, a few of my favorite black & whites! I can’t wait for you to see the rest of them!
With love- Kara

(Sigh). You’re the cutest. I am biased of course, being your aunt and all, but I have it on good authority from all of the people that I insist look at photos and videos of you regularly, that you are WAAAAY up there on the cute scale. Maybe they’re just being nice, but how could anyone not get sucked in by those eyes and that grin and those luscious baby-fat rolls?
I like thinking about how much fun we’ll have when you’re a little older and we can do things together like go to the zoo and the park and make big huge messes with paint and mud-pies! I know that after that, there will come a time when no matter how hard I try, I won’t be someone you want to hang out with anymore because you’ll realize that I’m…old. To you anyway. Because you’ll be a teenager. During this period of our lives, when I am the least-cool (second only to your parents) and you cannot possibly voluntarily be seen with me in public; I’ll try to remember my own teenage years. Instead of foolishly attempting to pick out cool music, clothes or educational games for you – I will give you cash and gift cards at birthdays and holidays. This I do solemnly swear. But for now, I’m going to give you the most ridiculous outfits I can and take as many pictures as I can and eat up all of your cuteness and continue to force coworkers, strangers and friends to agree that you are an above-average baby. This I do solemnly swear.
I love you dearest DJ!
