kaye's 1st birthday photo sesh

well folks. they did it again...

and it was the best sesh to date.

the husband/wife team of two bird studio snapped some goodies of my very best gal to capture her one year old self and as i look at the pictures over and over and over aaaaand over...i crack up every time.

her personality was captured to a "t" and i couldn't be more pleased.

oh my turtle. i'm so in love with this gal...and to have beautiful pictures to share of her just makes me all the happier.

just look at her...

how is it even possible that little old me was gifted this perfection.

she's gonna be a star, folks. a star.

a mother's pride. dangerous stuff.

but back to two bird studio.

are they not oh so talented?

i'll answer for you. yes. yes they are.

my gal is lightening fast on her feet so we plopped her in a big valley of tall grasses and that did a great job of slowing her down...just enough to snap away without being blurry. she's quick.

she's also quite focused.

chica is a professional. it's like the cameras weren't even there. such a natural.

our farmer and i even managed to sneak into a few shots. the walls in our house are still bare and i have big plans for some canvas family prints.

is anyone a whiz with photoshopping braces out of pictures? shoot me an e-mail.

and i'm SO happy they snapped this goodie.

my farmer throws kaye in the air on the daily.

she's typically terrified...valid.

we borrowed this sweet teepee from our farmer neighbor (amy) and i'm thrilled we did. there are so many cute shots of kaye peaking through the window, biting the window, walking in and out of the door...the perfect prop for our gal.

i've NEVER never seen her make this face. 

a one year original. just for you guys. 

we finished up with a glorious cake smash.

it was girlfriends first time really eating sugar sugar. like...the good stuff.

she was pretty into it at the start...
 ...and then...

it's safe to say this was the last picture. 

girlfriend was over it...and cold.

thank you so so...so so much to two bird studio. you two are always so fun to hang out with...next time lets get a post-sesh beverage...mmmk?

  1. OMG love 'em all! Love the original 'face' she made and love the cake from start to finish haha! SUCH great pics!

  2. I love your writing style, and these photos are just the best! I love the first family shot of you smiling at her, the new silly face, and of course the tears over the cake. We did our family photos with our 13 month old this past weekend and we couldn't get our boy to smile his big dimply toothy smile for anything! It was hilarious. He looks very coy and mischievous in every photo.

  3. fabulous, especially the last glamour shot of your sweetie pie. Happy Birthday to you both!

  4. She is SO cute, she reminds me a lot of my daughter. Have you read what Dr. Sears has to say about 'high needs babies'? I'm pretty certain my daughter fits in that category.
    PS. The farmer has some nice abs in the one pic where his shirt rode up...ow ow.

  5. hahaha So cute!! And OMG I"d be scared too if I was thrown that high, that is some SERIOUS air lol

  6. OMGOSH!! Her eyelashes in that first picture...gorgeous!! These turned out beautifully! The picture of Farmer throwing her makes me a bit...queasy. HA!

  7. What wonderful photos to preserve memories with! They turned out so beautifully and your family looks beautiful, too!

Oh and the one of her peaking around the corner looking so serious? love that too! Ok I love all of them.. you got great photos!
