Dylan's 1st Birthday!

Spend 5 minutes with me and you'll find out how much I love Birthdays!  Yes - especially my own...  So when Megan asked me to capture Dylan's 1st - I couldn't have been more thrilled!

I mean this kid knows how to party...balloons, party hats, friends, presents, multi-colored parachutes, a blue Mustang, cake - oh...and let's not forget the bubbles!  That's what I'm talking 'bout.

I remember when I turned 1...  Ok - maybe I don't...but I can remember enjoying a good party.  Here's to you Dylan - thanks for sharing your special day with me!

This is how Dylan rolls...   In a Mustang...

That's Max...Dylan's brother...  And apparently a "ladies man"...

Dylan's friends came out to help him celebrate the big day!

Did someone say "cake is served"...???

Of course watching a 1-year old eat cake is the hightlight of every party...

In the beginning Dylan was very serious about eating his cake...

And before you knew it...the sugar high kicked in and he was all giggles...

Big brother Max to the rescue...!

That cake didn't stand a chance...

I love photographing kids walking away...  Something so nostalgic about it.  Happy Birthday Dylan!


  1. These look great, KK! I laughed out loud at the photo of Max holding that little girl because I've seen that exact same expression on Megan's face before.


  2. I'm mad that Dylan didn't invite me...looked like a banging bday party!! And Max as the ladies man...funny as I don't know what!! Love the brightness of it all!!! YOU'RE AWESOME!!
