  • Little Kylie recently turned 1 year old. Kirsten was able to start with some photos of the party at our local Gymboree. Kylie was decked out in the cutest little pink tutu.

  • All the kids had a great time.

  • Back at the house, ready for everyone's arrival from Gymboree, was a spread of desserts and bright primary colors. I love sampling as I take photos. :-)

  • Outside, little stations were set up for the kids to play.

  • Natalie had put together a board showcasing each monthly photo during the first year. Inside was the most awesome chalkboard listing all of Kylie's favorite things.

  • The tables outside boasted even more photos taken throughout the year.

  • Last week I met up with Darleen and David and Dominic who we've photographed since Darleen and David's wedding, their pregnancy, and Dominic at several time-frames throughout the last two years.

    We arrived at my favorite park and this was one of my first shots of the afternoon. :-) I just LOVE it. Dominic just wanted to play and we had other plans. We wanted to get a family photograph, since David's mom, Mildred (aka grandma), and David's brother and his wife, Bruce and Vandana, and their two girls, Anjali and Abigail, were all in attendance as well.

  • I just love where Darleen finds Dom's clothes. And Vandana had the girls in perfect matching dresses.

  • This is the whole clan.

  • Anjali saw how daddy hugged her in this photo and she mimicked it with her sister.

  • This was just a perfect moment when I had Abi's full attention.

  • One photo of Grandma and the grandkids. It was no feat to get everyone looking in the same direction all at once!

  • David had just sneezed and provided great entertainment for Anjali.

  • After I asked if this pose was mimicking Dr. Evil (from Austin Powers), and the answer was yes, this became my favorite photo of the entire afternoon. :-)

  • One of my favorite moments to capture is that of a mother and her baby. I'm loving this silhouette from Teresa this week as part of the Memory Journalists Silhouette LOVE theme photo competition for February.

    "I loved seeing the love between my niece and her newborn son Giovanni," says Teresa.

    If you missed seeing Kelly's silhouette photo last week, be sure to check it out.

  • Back in January, I met up with Natalie and Ryan to take Kylie's 10 month photos as part of our photo series, taking photos throughout the first year of a child's life. We missed her 9 month photos since she was sick, then I was sick. But it is well worth the wait. She was so happy and grinning showing off her front teeth.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • Kylie was very distracted watching the other kids play. She wanted to join in the fun of others.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • We decided we'd better take a few family photos before we'd let her have fun in the park.

  • Check out Mommy and Kylie's eyes - pretty sure you can tell they are related.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • Daddy makes Kylie laugh and giggle so easily.

  • Gotta love a little advertising in of my photo within a photo! The photo phone case was from one of our prior family portrait sessions.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • I was worried that the trees would look so barren, but I really love the color and look of this photo considering it's January.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • Give it another few more weeks and Kylie won't need mom and dad holding her hands as she walks.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • Kylie was more interested in the giant leaves than Gymbo when mom and dad looked away for just an instant.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE this one of Natalie and Kylie.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • Kylie had many firsts at the park - first time on the swing, first time down the slides...she was full of smiles.

  • Photos throughout the first year of a child's life

  • I'll leave you with this last one - my favorite of daddy and Kylie.
