Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog- a place where I share a bit of my photography, a bit of my life, and a lot of me! I am in love with the life that God has provided me. I live with my wonderful husband in central Oklahoma, in the town of Edmond. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I enjoy my work as a nurse and photographer. I adore sweets, nature, and my pesky (but cute) boxer, Honey. I feel that I am blessed with a passion for photography, and pray that I am able to bless others through it.

Thank you for being here and sharing the experience with me!

Isaiah's First Birthday Party

My sweet baby boy turned one a couple weeks ago, so of course we had to celebrate with  a party! I decided on a "time flies" theme with vintage airplanes and rainbows, using Pintrest for some fun ideas. I tried to keep in mind the fact that I was hosting a party for a 1 year old who wouldn't remember it, but I couldn't help myself with all the cute airplane decor. As for the actual party, it was pretty simple, we just had friends and family over for sandwiches and cupcakes. Even though I only ordered 25 invites to limit the people we invited, I couldn't help but invite everyone who's been a part of Isaiah's life. I went against what "they" say and invited more children than the age of my son (which means "they" would recommend only inviting 1 kid to a 1 year old bday party), and I am happy that we had everyone there. There were at least 30 adults and 10 kids and I think everyone enjoyed it. I was nervous about how Isaiah would do with, esp because once I sent out the invites, he changed his naptime to start right when I had planned the party to start. But his aunt Judy got him down for an early nap that day and he was fun and social during the party :c) Okay, enough talking and onto the pics! I had our friend and fellow photog, Adrian, come and capture the moments :c)
Here's the invite I designed and a cute candy plane
I don't know why, but I like a cute table set up

2)Rainbow fruit skewers (now we're talkin')

5)Rainbow cake and cupcakes (yes, these were prepared better than my birth cupcakes a year ago)

10)An aerial view of the sandwich platter
