Look Who's ONE! Happy Birthday, Jace!

Happy Birthday, Jace!  You are a year old, and surrounded by so many people who love you!  It has been my extreme pleasure to have been the photographer who captured so many milestones in your first year.... 5 days old, 3 months, 7 months, 10 months, and now your first birthday!

We started the day with some family pictures outside in the gorgeous spring weather.  Then I ventured in the house to capture the details of the party, the guests, the food, and the excitement.

Jace's mom, Rachel, is so creative and crafty.  When I walked in to the party, I saw some terrific decorations, like this banner of monthly growth, and the wall full of streamers, not to mention the awesome camo cake!

Grandmas, grandpas, uncles and aunts, cousins and friends all joined in the party, with Dad Randy at the grill.  Lunch was delicious!

After lunch, it was time for a very special gift opening.  We already knew that Jace is going to be a big brother, but now we know it's a baby brother on the way!  It was an exciting moment when those blue balloons came floating out!  Then Jace and Rachel opened more presents.

Blowing kisses after he finished opening his gifts.  Isn't he the cutest!?!?

Now it's time for the cake!  Into the chair, put on your hat, and blow out your candle!  Then dig in and get messy!  He really enjoyed his birthday treat!

 So much cuteness!  Sweet little Jace has been a joy to photograph throughout his first year.  His bright blue eyes, soft skin tones, and bubbly personality have been nothing but a joy to photograph.  I'm super sad that he is turning one already, though, because that means we won't have an excuse to do photos every three months!  But of course, with that brother on the way next fall, I'll hopefully see them often!  Love you guys!
