Today, I drove the two hours to celebrate Ryanne’s first birthday.
Michael and I arrived at the house about an hour before the party was scheduled to start. Bethany had asked me if I’d be willing to take a few photos of Ryanne, so we quickly got the birthday girl dressed in her special outfit and headed outdoors for a short photo session. Many of you have asked me to share photos from my sessions, and I’m happy to say that this time, I can! Since she’s my best friend and all… :)
Although I spend a lot of time behind the lens, we had to get one with me in front of it as well…
Since Ryanne isn’t quite walking yet, I had to pose her in places where she could sit, or stand assisted. Although that somewhat limited what I could do, it also meant that she wasn’t able to run away from me! :)
Before long, it started to sprinkle a bit and we had to head inside to get a few things ready for the party. Little Ryanne was loved on by all of her family and friends, and we did all of the traditional first birthday stuff…
It was a great day, and I loved having the opportunity to see Bethany and Ryanne.
Now, Michael and I are actually off to a 30th birthday party! I guess it’s just a good day to celebrate LIFE!
