harper turns one!

harper's first birthday celebration was perfectly simple. first stop: cronut doughnut cake to put us all in a sugar-coma! once she tasted her first bite of the deliciousness, she was all smiles. garrison + i enjoyed reflecting on the past year as parents, which is really the best thing to ever happen to us.
after breakfast, we walked around main street snapping a few photos. i'm so glad we did, because some of these are my new favorites! harper wore her fanciest dress + absolutely loved having a giant balloon follow her around all day.
that afternoon, we met at a friend's house for a play date and to eat cake. harper's smash cake was a naturally sweetened banana cake with cherry yogurt instead of frosting and topped with banana slices. she loved the yogurt and had fun making a mess. luckily garrison was in charge of getting her cleaned up afterward!
^ coconut lemon curd cake for the adults, #1 brownie for the kids
"pin the party hat on baby harper" was a hit with the older kids. idea from say yes
since it wasn't at our house due to the upcoming move, i kept the decor very simple. photos printed through snapbox
^ it was fun walking around the neighborhood with the balloon the next day!

product photography: mom's my stylist

i've had the opportunity to dapple a little in product photography, and i am really enjoying it. recently i did some work for a new etsy shop, mom's my stylist, which sells handmade hair accessories for girls. it can be challenging to get a great shot when my "assistant" is only a year old, but here are some of my favorites.
(ps: see my portfolio here.)

spring snow // part 2

more snow! and we had the sledding hill all to ourselves. mister fynn was one happy pup running all over the golf course. and harper's baby snow tracks were just the cutest.
