Zoey : My First Birthday

ZOEY IS 1!!!

Today we celebrate my youngest niece Zoey Marie! <3 <3 <3

I had so much fun planning out this shoot with my sister.  We wanted to make sure all of Zoey’s cuteness was captured before her birthday party with friends and family.  The best part was being able to surprise my Sister and Brother-in-law at the party with all the prints from the shoot! 😉

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZOZO!!!

🙂Julia had this wishing well behind their shed. It was PERFECT for Zoey’s shoot!Just helping out…I cannot say enough about this little cutie and her adorable personality.

She LITERALLY smiled like this ALL day.

No joke, easiest client to date!

😉Come ON with this cuteness!!! <3A perfect little addition to this ALL girl (+ Dad) clan.That smile and that tongue! So happy! 🙂

Daddy and his youngest little sweetie. <3

When Jules told me she had matching shirts for her and Zoey, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Bought on different days, how adorable are these???

AH! That look. So in love with each other.

Into the bedroom we went…

I LOVE all of these because there was no chance an almost 1 year old was going to sit still.

HA!

Seriously, such a BIG personality in such a little tiny kid.

:):) 🙂 🙂

She kept burying her face in the sheets and lifting it up going ‘Ahhhhhh!

(To be fair, I was too!)

I couldn’t stop laughing!

In addition to her photo album, we gifted a cute pink photo frame with this image on the left.

It read :

‘Love has more meaning now that you are here.’

VERY true for our ZOZO!

She could NOT get enough of this game! lol!

A little outfit change and off we went for a fun ‘MOMMY & ME’ shoot!

Yes, tulle skirts and props were an adorable MUST!

<3 <3 <3

All I can do is smile looking at all of these!

From lunch time until almost dark, I photographed this little cutie and that smile NEVER left her face.

Such a fun way to end Zoey’s 1 year session!

One week later and all of Zoey’s family and friends come over to celebrate her 1st year…MONSTER’S INC themed!

Cousins helping to blow out the candle.And then we all sat back and watched the blue cake-in-face magic happen…LOVE those blue eyes! 🙂

To finish off the cake, mom and dad joined out in the front yard.

I think she had a GREAT birthday!

🙂

🙂

At the end of the night, all you want to do is put on your Monster’s Inc. Sully costume and play in the yard right???

The cutest little birthday monster we ever did see!

And all together now…
