Well it’s true, last week my baby turned ONE YEAR OLD! I was so sad for the day to come, but I’m actually happy to have a 1 year old. My baby (or maybe I should be calling him a toddler now?) is at such a fun age where he loves life and exploring the world. He makes life so fun! While there is nothing quite like those newborn cuddles, I am loving how he has changed and grown.

I’m sure every mom will agree you never realize just how fast a year can go by until you have a baby! This is why it’s so important to document as much as you can. It’s been so fun going through photos of Nikson’s first year and seeing how much he’s changed. He seriously looks like a different baby every month, it’s crazy!

My good friend Tevi took these photos for Nikson’s first birthday and as you’ll be able to tell in the photos, Nikson was NOT in a smiling mood (it was right before nap time). But I still love the photos she was able to capture and now I can always remember what he looked like at this age.

I bought a giant silver “1” balloon for the shoot, and I should have remembered from our Pregnancy Announcement photo shoot HERE that balloons can be super tricky in photo shoots! They are always moving in the wind and facing the wrong direction and what not. Just keep that in mind if you are ever wanting to use number or letter balloons for a photo shoot!first birthday photoshoot
