Do you remember this little man?!?! He belongs to my BFF Melo. I know that I say it all the time, but I seriously cannot believe how quickly time flies by and how fast little ones grow. It is amazing to watch how much they grow and change throughout their first year of life—to go from tiny little newborns who sleep most of the day to alert, active little one year olds who are moving all over the place!!! Before I know it, all my little buddies will be graduating from high school and heading off to college!!!
Kolten will be turning one soon, so in preparation for his memorable milestone we had his one-year old photo session!!! The theme of his first birthday party is…can you guess?!?! I hope you said CARNIVAL!!! Haha!!! So we decided to do a carnival theme for his shoot as well. Melo and I collaborated together about what Kolten would wear, props to bring—it’s a mixture of my props and her props. For the longest time, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make a flag pennant banner. At the last minute I decided that I should just make it so that I can have it on hand at the shoot. So the night before the shoot I headed to Wal-Mart to buy coordinating fabrics—I hoped and I prayed that they would have some in stock…in the colors that I wanted. To my delight, they did and I was soooooooo relieved. I woke up early on the day of the shoot and started measuring, cutting and sewing the banner together. It took me a couple of hours, but I was able to create two banners, which we did end up using 🙂
Thank you Melo and Kurt for a fabulous morning together!!! Although, Kolten woke up grumpy, he sure was over it at the shoot!!! 🙂 Look at all the smiles we captured!!! I love his adorable smile, his laughter and his oh-so cute self!!! Thank you for allowing me to capture this wonderful milestone in his life!!! Can’t wait to celebrate!!!
