Rowe's 1st Birthday

I promised a post, and well, lets just say, I hope you are in the mood to look at pictures.... I think there may just be a million or so (ok, maybe not a million).... if you got here through Celeste, then youve probably already seen some of these, but what the heck - it never hurts to look at a cute little one over and over and over.... especially on such a special occasion...

We did Rowe's 12 month pics first and then I stayed took pics of the party.... lots o' fun.... I love parties!

I thought it would be such a cute pic of Rowe in his bed with his name behind him..... but he had other ideas.... bed = nap = not happy....

but once we took him out, he was the same bubbly smiley personality that we love

I so, so adore this pic.... Celeste has done such an awesome decorating job.... what you see on the wall is Rowe's newborn, 3 month, & 6 month pics.... I love how this one at 12 months is right smack dab in the bottom middle... like everything has come full circle!

Tell me this isnt a beautiful vintage postcard just waiting to happen

How cute, cute, cute is this cake - it was done by Taylor Massey, you should look her up!

Lee stayed outside and cooked some mean burgers... Rowe happened to notice his daddy

Celeste was inside, entertaining the guests - leading Happy Birthday here

Finally, Rowe got some cake....

I think he liked it!

Ok, is it illegal to have parents be this good-looking.... c'mon guys, share the wealth.... :)

Oh my goodness, how I absolutely adore this one!

Present time! Ha - look what Rowe found

Ha - I love that they all have the same expression - thats how you know it was a good present!

I had an amazing time.... as always, Celeste, Lee and Rowe thanks for letting me be a part of your lives, you are amazing people!
Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and the New Year is treating you right.... if you havent already, be sure to check out the new website http://www.talleyimages.com/ . If you are thinking about doing spring pictures, I would really encourage you to try to think about when you want them done and get them scheduled.... spring is always a really busy time and I would hate to miss out on anyone....
Another quick idea for you to think about as well.... Valentines is coming up soon.... tired of the same old cheap Valentines and wish you could have something a bit more unique? Set up a Valentines session and use the wallets as Valentines.... I did this last year with my own kids and it turned out so great! If I have enough interested, I was going to do a Valentines mini-shoot day! It will consist of 30 minute slots, be $50 (plus tax) and you will get 8 wallets of the picture of your choice. Please let me know if you are interested so I can start setting this up. I do have a few props if anyone is interested as well - cupid/angel/fairy wings, tutus, beads, etc.... but feel free to come up with your own idea. Email me at talleyimages@yahoo.com and let me know ASAP!
