Heidi

Heidi turns 1!

This adorable little miss turned 1 a couple weeks ago and I had the privilege of getting to celebrate with her family and capture the day! Her parents are almost like family to me. My relationship with them both began as boss/employee and over the course of many years we became friends. I knew them each before they were even a couple and have gotten to watch their love story unfold since then. It's been so cool to witness :) When they got married, their wedding was the first wedding I ever shot! I'm so grateful that they had faith in me and took a chance on an aspiring photographer for such a important day. It meant so much to me and I will never forget that. That wedding will always be so special to me!

It's been such a joy and honor to be a part of the special events in Chris and Jess' lives. Needless to say I was very excited to be a part of Heidi's first birthday! She had a Luau themed party and it was awesome! She is seriously the sweetest, happiest little girl. It was about five thousand degrees when I took these photos and she was just as content as can be. She has the cutest little personality and I just love her :)

Happy 1st birthday Heidi!!!!
