Turning ONE is so much Fun...

Those who have followed my work for awhile may remember Nathan, he's a beautiful baby boy, born to loving parents Kristen and Colin. My first photo shoot with the family was when I found out Kristen was pregnant and we did a fun Maternity photo shoot at a park near their home. I was still in Photography school at the time.  ...Time certainly flies... We did another photo session when Nate was three months and now.... Lookie Lookie who just turned ONE  year old!

Something I didn't realize until Kristen reminded me was that the first toy they got for Nathan was this little plush puppy, which they named Kenny. This was my gift to her when I found out she was preggers. Little did we know it would become Nathan's best friend, he takes Kenny everywhere with him... this also inspired Kristen to integrate Kenny into the birthday cake this year.

I'd say she totally nailed it!  It only took 6 hours to make Kenny... the rest of the cake took more time... what a Mom!

With all that hard work, I have to showcase the talent that Kristen has before moving on to their adorable little boy...

Not knowing how Kenny would fair, another cake with lots of frosting was offered as a sacrificial cake... And Nate took the bait.

Mom and Dad got some and I even think Nathan was trying to share with me....

When Nathan headed under the table we all thought he was getting tired... oh, no not with all that sugar... he was just flirting...

After some time the Kenny cake was presented as well and let's just say that the Kenny Cake Topper will not be making any more appearances...and fortunately the real Kenny is much more durable.

The damage is done and I would say fun was had by all!  I'm looking forward to many more events with this beautiful family!  Thank You Kristen, Colin and Nathan!
