Qais's 1st Birthday

First off I still can’t believe our little one turned 1 in December and I can’t believe its been almost a whole month and we now have a 13th month old! Can we please ask Father Time to slow time down just a bit?? We are growing at rapid speeds here and Im not ready for it! We have a babbler, runner, hyperactive, biggest personality son! I couldn’t be more grateful or thankful that our little boy is just full of love and light.

In December we celebrated his first birthday with our family and friends and I refused to not have someone document our big day. Even though Im a photographer and yes I could have done it myself, I didn’t want to. I wanted to enjoy every bit of it with everyone. Sometimes it’s nice to step away from the camera and let someone else handle it for a change.

First off,I need to give a HUGE thank you to my dear friend Rachel Stubbe for documenting Qais’s big day. It was such a relief to have someone as talented as you there with us.

Secondly, we are all about monsters. Yep, MONSTERS. Let’s just say I wanted to do the traditional Circus, Wild One, Gentleman’s birthday theme BUT it goes without saying that our little guy is a monster. From the nosies he walks around making to destroying pretty much everything in his path that it was most fitting for him to have a monster bash! This was probably the easiest party to put together. (DIY’s coming soon!)

Thirdly, enjoy our day with us!
