2016 was a really big year for our family. We were busy. A highlight of the year was my baby sister getting married! She had a small church wedding the day before her big outdoor wedding where I acted as the unofficial photographer.

Anyone who knows me knows I love to throw a good party. Give me a theme and I'm off. I was excited to do a "Wild One" party all in black and white and yellow. Especially since he's the 3rd boy, I was ready for something different. I really got into it and we were ready to go. The Friday before the birthday day I picked up his cake, put the finishing touches on the party and headed out to pick up the older boys at school. That was when I saw a few spots on his feet. Wouldn't you know it, the day before his party he came down with Hand Foot and Mouth. I was so sad. We had to cancel having anyone come who had kids, but I appreciate the adult family members who came and enjoyed the fully planned party. It turned out great anyway and he really enjoyed being the center of attention and just playing. It makes for a good story anyway. And on a positive note, he really got into the cake.
My baby turned 1 last September and I haven't had a chance to blog about it. Sadly, his cake smash did not go as I had planned. He really wanted nothing to do with the cake?!?! His birthday theme was "Wild One" so we use a Where the Wild Things Are theme and took some fun shots at a friend's house.

It was fitting that this family was my last of the holiday season. I photographed this little girl when she was 10 days old. I've had the opportunity to see her almost every year since then and it's so special. She is spunky firecracker that makes each shoot entertaining. Also, who doesn't love a family who rocks the Christmas sweaters?
