What seems like one million years ago we had our friend and life photographer (because we’re like royals but also it’s a convenience + talent thing) Michelle of Mira Photographs take one year pictures of Beck. She was just a few days shy of 1, and I did the whole cupcake + balloons thing, which I originally was going to skip because omg cliche, but then I realized that cliches as they relate to babies are great and also adorable. …
My bff is just super talented and we had so much FUN doing these pictures, it kind of makes the current discomfort and impatience a teensy bit better.
On Saturday two of my best friends threw me a baby shower (it feels selfish to say that like…they threw the baby a shower and I’m just her representative) and it was lovely and wonderful and I’m going to tell you all about it. The party was in our neighborhood, so before we headed over my sisters and mom came over to take some pictures because 1. we didn’t at the beach this year, 2. we were all showered and looked pretty good and 3. we won’t all be together at Thanksgiving, which is when we usually have this ritual of kind of fighting about pictures but then being really happy we took some.
It’s always kind of a process.
This place you guys, really.
Follow along on our trip, if you aren’t already, and get READY to hear all about it when we get back! I can’t freaking wait.
