Happy Birthday Kensington! This First Birthday Hot Air Balloon Themed photo session was everything us "extra" Moms live for! Kensington's Mom Nicole @coleswifey is one of the most Extra ladies I know and I absolutely Love it! I was so excited to be asked to photograph her daughter's first Birthday. Take a look at her Instagram to see how she is a home decorating guru so you know... I knew... she was going to go big with all the fun photo shoot goodies.
She made this adorable Hot Air Balloon herself and it was just the cutest. She pulled out all the stops. Chalkboard, bows, the cutest outfits, floral crowns, dream catchers. We didn't even tap into all the cute outfits. Unfortunately, Kensington wasn't the happiest of Birthday Girls on this Morning. It Was her birthday and she could cry if she wanted to. She was however super happy in this vintage tub with nice cool water and bubbles. Can't really wear princess dresses in the tub but.. she loved it there so we just went with it.
First Birthday Milestones are so exciting when you are a new Mom. I remember going all out for my kids first few Birthday parties. It's so much work but so rewarding. You now have these photos and memories forever to keep with you and in your heart. When you look back, that first year flies by. They are only babies for such a short sweet time. It's hard to even remember them as being babies as they grow. So I am all about going all out and fully documenting everything you can. Great job Nicole!
