1 year pictures

Today marks the first day of my little baby's first birthday. You can expect that this weeks blog posts will be all about E. And so without further ado...They're here! The pictures I have been so anxiously awaiting are finished. Let me introduce you to my photographer: Jen Herem. She is extremely talented in so many areas, but photography is in her blood. I love her because she's so creative. She's good at coming up with great ways to add color or use something different. Would you believe that after leaving the shoot I was a bit down feeling like there wouldn't be 1 shot with a smile? My E became very serious and was really tough to get a smile out of. When I got the pictures back, I was amazed at the great shots she was able to capture, even under the circumstances. Also, she willingly shot some pics for Father's Day (her genious suggestion) and she went to drastic measures to make sure the pics were ready for me in time. These are just a FEW of my favorites. Make sure you head over to Jen's blog and check out even more.



































Thank you to all who helped weigh in on his wardrobe choices. I ended up finding vintage looking suspenders for $1 at the thrift store. They were adult size, so I cut them and altered them for little boy size. A big thank you goes out to my parents who found the baby Converse shoes literally at the last second. We searched high and low for stylish shoes in his little size.

This weekend we held the big birthday party. It was so very stressful, but turned out really good. Check back tomorrow for a ton of pictures and a full report.
