One Year In A Flash: Bellamy's 1st Birthday

Every parent says it …they grow up so fast!
In just a year’s time, Bellamy went from snuggling and sleeping most of the day surfing the furniture around the house, laughing, and yelling out for “Hi Hi Hi”. The bittersweet thoughts about Bellamy's first birthday, knowing that we may not be able have a second child & the desire to capture this fun time in Bellamy's life via her weekly photo project inspired the theme for Belamy's party: One Year Old in a Flash.

Well, I started with the invitations as they set the tone & get people excited about being a part of the celebration. I’ve worked with my dear blog friend Kristen, of Little Laws Prints, many different parties and projects, & she always designs above and beyond my expectations and everything I could imagine!


My wonderful neighbor, Emily offered to take pictures at the party and it was the best decision, as it was really nice to not have to worry about grabbing the camera at just the right moment; I knew Emily was getting great shots of all the important things, so I was able to just enjoy the party and our guests without having to be host and photographer. Thank you so much Emily!

I think the photos below will tell you how the birthday celebration went!
