first birthdays are so much fun and they go by SO fast!!! at my own kiddo's first birthday i wish looking back i'd hired a professional - as a mama who knows how to work the camera i figured i would snap i went, but let me tell you: 

nope. just, nope.

kristen has been a client of mine for several years (bride turned mama // family sessions etc!) and she's also a beautiful and artistic creative soul! so anytime she puts her mind to it she creates the prettiest little things that are always fun to shoot. if you're looking for fun and whimsical party inspo, here you go!
