When our babies are little, every month seems to bring a new milestone or special occasion. Those first couple years are a whirlwind, but oh, so much fun! Babies have a way of bringing family together and reminding us all of the sweet joys of childhood. This little guy had a double header that turned out to be a super fun all-day photoshoot. Handsome Warner turned one, and his parents decided to have him baptized at the same time for a double celebration. It was such a pleasure getting to know this wonderful family, and I had a blast celebrating these monumental moments with them.
Even though it was a long day with lots of excitement, Warner was the calmest baby around – all smiles the whole day! They did his baptism first at St. Angela Merici. The church and sanctuary are beautiful, and the huge stained-glass windows let in plenty of natural light so I could capture all of the conversation, hugs, and details of the day. What a joyful blessing his baptism was – this little guy is surrounded by so much love and prayer.
After getting a few more family shots since everyone was together, we all headed out to his baseball themed birthday party in Fullerton. He had so much fun bouncing on the huge blow-up glove, rolling the balls, and playing with all of the other kiddos. He might only be a year old, but he could hang with the best of them! I love the photo of all the kids in the play areas with the pups – too cute!
Then, it was time for CAKE! And he LOVED it! This little one isn’t shy, and after all that playtime, he needed to recharge with fistfuls of cake. We were all laughing at his enthusiasm. What a truly happy birthday for a truly happy kid.
Much love, little Warner! May your year be filled with fun.
