Oh man, the FIRST birthday – what a monumental occasion! Even though it is the baby’s birthday, these celebrations are really for mom and dad. They did it – they survived the first year and the baby thrived! When a baby is born, moms are exhausted. Often times in pain and dealing with an emotional roller coaster (thanks hormones) so the true celebration of life is at the first birthday where mom is gorgeous and finally sleeping more than 3 hours a night! Parenting has a rhythm by now and all systems are a go.
It was my pleasure to photograph this sweet boy in celebration of his birthday and baptism. He is so loved. Look at all the family members that came for him. Love to document this special day. Congrats Baby Colton! Your family loves you so much!
