“we’ll build a little cabin on a little tall hill
plant a little garden, pray for every meal
and we’ll grow, and we’ll grow
take a little nap in the butterfly grass
just you and I and the clouds that pass
and we’re close, so close.”
When Katie and I were talking about locations for Cedar’s first birthday session, I asked her to think about all of her favorite things, and what they loved to do as a family. When she explained that their favorite time of day was the evenings when they would go for a family walk together, I knew that would be the perfect thing to do to document this specific season for their family. I’m so glad they let me tag along for the evening :)I’m still in denial that this baby girl is actually ONE. Wasn’t it just the other week that we did her newborn portraits?! and I know you will remember miss Cedar Belle from their mommy&me lavender field portraits from this summer! and of COUSE there’s the cutest Mickey Mouse ears you’ve ever seen too! love both of these next ones :)As soon as I saw this next one I sent a little screen shot of it to Katie, and I think she already has a spot on their wall picked out for the canvas that I’m sure she will be ordering :) definitely one of my favorites from their session!
family walks are the best :)and no walk is complete with out a trip to the playground! This girl was loving the swing!but OH my gosh her face would light up when she’d go down the slide! too cute!! oh hey sweet girl! CBelle will give a big smile and wave to everyone she sees :)love this one too!! :)how cute is her 1st birthday outfit?! she wasn’t too sure about that cupcake at her birthday party, but I think now she’s got the hang of it :)oooh that sugary little smirk melts my heart!we ended the session with her other favorite activity, bath time!! :)Happy 1st Birthday, sweet Cedar Belle! Love you dearly, baby girl! :)
