Let me just tell you that the best party-planning idea that I ever stole from someone was leaving room in the budget to hire a photographer to come and take pictures throughout the party. Best. Decision. Ever. This freed me up to enjoy the party, relax while watching my baby take it all in, and, best of all, I actually made it into a few of the pictures with my birthday girl this go around! Usually, I'm behind the camera as most Mommy's are, but this year I hired the best photographer I know (who happens to be my best friend...win win), and she did a BEAUTIFUL job capturing the day for us, right down to the littlest details.
As is usual with Katie's pictures, I couldn't just choose a few favorites...so here's a lot of my favorites from Delia Jane's special day!
(The monthly chair/lamb pictures...sigh. Makes me want to cry!)
(On the move!)
(Giving her Daddy the eye...love this one.)
(Watching the video Russell made of Delia's first year...um, sob fest!)
(Emery and Nomi enjoying the new trampoline!)
(My talented friend.)
(How we really act together. Nice.)
It was such a lovely day spent celebrating our little lady.
Not so little anymore.
