I was incredibly excited to share this post! I was planning it in my heart for awhile and just waiting for the perfect timing to share it with you all. First of all, this BOY. This AMAZING little boy. He stole my heart the first day I met him. I tell my family & friends that I adore this precious baby. And it is true. Every week I get to love on him and I was so excited when his wonderful Mommy asked me to photograph his very first birthday on New Years Day.
I haven’t done a photo shoot like this in a long long time. I was so very excited for it and totally didn’t know what to expect. I really do love photojournalism! My heart is really into capturing moments as they naturally happen. A birthday party is just an awesome opportunity to capture those. I think we have a few “posed” photos, but this Mommy got 200 photos of a lot of spontaneous and priceless moments that happened during Declan’s birthday party. Yes, TWO hundred, y’all! I cannot control myself. Ha. I tried my best to narrow down to my favorites for this post but I absolutely love them all. Of course, some were left out just for the family to see but this post is HUGE. I promise, it’s worth it.
This handsome little boy is SO loved. I feel so blessed to watch the love that is poured into his precious life. I learn so much from his amazing Mama. She is so loving, so patient, so kind. I think I don’t even have to say much, these photos show profound love.
Happy Birthday, wonderful boy! Your life is such a blessing and it was so special to celebrate with you and your loving family!
