First Birthdays are the BEST!

What is more fun than a birthday? A first birthday! Seriously, I take first birthdays very seriously. Finn's and G's first birthday were freaking way over the top. I look back with some embarrassment. I mean a three tiered cake for a one year old, come on. Although I can't say I wouldn't do it again (insert a shame emoji). 

My sweet friend asked me to take Alora's first birthday pictures. It was all very illegal. We trespassed and went through quite a few patches of stinging nettle to get her into this pretty little field. I for one believe in doing all things illegal if it means we get a good picture, just saying. The lighting is so much better in the evening so poor Alora was tired and wasn't having it. I felt bad for her but my firm belief for a photo shoot for any age but especially for babies is get in and get out. It should be pain free or at least as pain free as I can make it. No point in dragging it out. Usually a child's best photos are taken at the beginning of a shoot anyways. So we did our best and she looks like a little angel. 

she wanted nothing to do with getting her hands dirty.

Look at that little lone tear. Doesn't that just melt you?
