I remember when each of my children turned one. With Darius (he’s our first), we went all out. We invited everyone and anyone. We layed out a huge spread and had a fantastic party. With Andre (our middle), his party was half as big. We invited close friends and family members. Still had a great time, but it was a little more intimate. When Juliana (our third and final), turned one, it was just us. I’ve learned that the best parties are not the big huge extravagant ones. They’re the ones that you celebrate with those closest to you; the most important ones.
This sweet girl is about to turn one. Isn’t she a doll? I mean, she has the perfect face of a doll. We ventured out to a park downtown. I’d never been there and neither had she. It was a mid day shoot with lots of bright sun out and I hadn’t shot a one year old in quite some time. I had been praying and wishing that I still had it.
It was so nice spending the warm afternoon outside beneath the trees and the buzzing people. I think that Miss O gave me some great shots that her parents will surely cherish! Take a peek:
