How in the WORLD is this sweet baby so old?? Another baby has grown up and time has sucker punched me one again. William was the star of these Walnut Creek family portraits as we celebrated his first birthday and took advantage of the last of the glorious spring grass. Can I tell you how much I miss luscious grass? A lot. I miss it a lot. But I digress! This day was glorious not just because I got to spend it taking pretty pictures of humans I adore, but because I got eat snacks with them too. 🙂 Nicole and Rob have been some of my favorite couple’s to every marry and then to be part of their boy’s being born and growing up has meant the world to me. This is a family that I get on a deep level – and a lot of that level is filled with snacks. Nicole knew Will would be wiped out after our family session in the trees and grass so she invited me to lunch with the family while he napped before his cake smash. I will never turn down a lunch invitation – especially from Nicole! She pulled out a lunch that made my heart sing because it was all snacks. Cheeses, crackers, dips, smoked salmon, chips – THE WORKS! It was perfect. And right on time, Will woke up and we got to smashing some cake in honor of his first trip around the sun! Nicole and Rob have made two incredibly beautiful boys who I can’t wait to watch grow up! Happy belated birthday William!! I love you and your family mucho!
I feel like this next image is such a great photo of a family with kiddos these ages. One kid in his own world, the other pulling whatever he can find, and mom and dad smiling at the camera beautifully but most likely internally freaking out.
