Isabella's First Birthday Party!

So I just realized I haven't posted pictures of Izzy's first birthday party! Life has been crazy, and I'm hoping its going to be just a teeny, tiny less crazy now that school is done (Finally got my degree- woot!). So with out further ado.................... Ms. Isabella Johanna's First Birthday Party!
Check out the outfit- my friend Rosana's sister made it! Too cute!
(but I made the ridiculous flower bow)
Tried to do a mini-photo shoot in my new favorite photo shoot corner, but, um- kinda hard with a toddler!

Izzy is ONE! (tried so hard for her to do the 1 year old finger like her sister. Izzy seriously only does it when she feels like it. Like when she's running away from her pose and trying to escape the photoshoot.)

Look who she found!
She was dancing by the stereo. Love the bobbing baby dance

Margarita bar for the adults!
trying to get a baby shot. didn't turn out the way I expected. I wasn't planning on being in it, but it was the only way to get Izzy to stay!
Auntie Anne & Uncle Greg got her 100 small balls- and it was probably her favorite present.
Fabulous cupcakes by my friend Stephanie of Hey There, Cupcake. They taste as good as they look! But Izzy had mommy's gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, vegan cake. She didn't mind!
1 year old pinata! (For the bigger kids)

Sorry, random, out of order pictures.

How classic is this picture? Pour thing burst into tears when everyone started to sing to her. I don't think she was expecting it...... I love how she's grasping onto my arm in this pic

Once everyone stopped singing, she calmed down and ate some cake
Cake makes everything better
It was a gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, vegan cake. Got the recipe here. Yeah, sucks to be my kid (I need to do a post on my whole new diet/"way of life")
Happy, Happy Birthday to my beautiful one year old girl. I love you Miss Izzy J!

Jess is rockin the kriss kross look today

Miss B

So, I am in no way trying to do the photography thing for anything more than fun. I've taken a few "photoshoots" in the past few months: My brother Greg and his fiance Anne, my assistant and her family, a few with Jessica & Izzy, as well as the 1,000 + I take every month of my preschoolers.
I was recently asked by one of the moms if I would take her daughters 2 year pictures. I was beyond flattered! I refused any money, since I really barely know what I'm doing- and thought it would be fun, and good practice.
We went to a beautiful park that is in their community- it was literally "picture perfect" (ha! couldn't resist)
Anyways, I was really happy with how they turned out!!! Now to teach myself photo shop so I can edit them a little fancier than in Picasa......

Miss B is as sweet as can be.

She also has the greatest sense of humor
Holding up two fingers
I know this is a bit blurry, but I still love it! She is the most precious little girl, and she is going to be the most beautiful woman when she grows up!
I love her little profile!
Ok, and really, how perfect did this picture turn out? I didn't even have to pose her! I was totally anxious, with her on that rock- but her mom was in arms reach. I'm really happy with how they turned out
Holding up her two fingers again! So cute!
I dont' even remember why she was clapping, but it was pretty cute. This girl needs to be a baby model

Hilarious! Makes me giggle every time. (This picture in particular I really want to play with the colors.)
I love her feet. Who doesn't love little kid feet? So incredibly cute. And hers in particular, are just precious
So those are my favorites, out of 250 pictures! Hope you enjoyed :)
