I seriously can’t believe a year has gone by already.  Lyla has been such a joy for our family.  She seriously has been the best little baby ever, I don’t know what we would do without her.  Even though she was not the easiest to get any standing pictures of. We will still keep her:)  That’s what happens when you have an early walker.  We drove all the way to St. George again to take her pictures where we did her newborn shots.  Don’t want to her to have 3rd child syndrome with no cute pictures:) I will put all the links for these products at the bottom of the post.

It was her first time walking outside and we just couldn’t get her to hold still for one second!

Got that adorable outfit & headband that lyla was wearing with the one sign from:  Snazzy Drawers

The fabulous headbands from: La Rose Couture and the one sign from:  Kaylee studio The flags are from: starlitnestgifts

My friend Jen made these adorable crowns. If you want to order one just email her and she can custom make you one.  Her email is jowen@xmission.com

cupcake and bag toppers are from: babycakesart cookies are from: StoneHouseOven The mini flowers are from: thegildedbee

cake stand is from: standsforallseasons Lyla’s belt is from: rosyposydesigns Olivia and Mya’s shoes are from: littleposhbebe Cake is from of course: Dipidee Their outfits are from: Jcrew Easter baskets were from: tatteredroses

Hopefully I remembered everyone!


These photos are beyond words. You are so talented. I love them! They make me want to setup a shoot with my kids. Question, where do you get some of your props? The old fashion kids buggies? And the hats/bonnets? Did you make the hats? Also are these actual events or did you set them up for your kids to play and you to capture?
Amazing! Your talent is so inspiring!

Katie- are you joking? This is amazing. My poor little Louella will never have a birthday that looks like that:( I really need to get her some pics for her second birthday since the only ones I have of her are her newborn ones you took! Pathetic I know she definitly is going to have 3rd child syndrome.
