Up Up and Away to Simone’s First Birthday!

Simone’s ONEderful Birthday was just two days away when we gathered for these shots and Jayden’s was three weeks prior. It was a warm day and so who wouldn’t want to take a hot air balloon ride? I was quite impressed with the balloons holding over 25 lb babies! Wink (Photoshop). Simone came sporting her first set of pig-tails for the occasion and we all brought some props to really spice it up. So let’s get this party started, shall we? Up, up and away we go-o-o-o.

“You know I hate tall grass! Somebody help me!”

This old riding tractor has been in the family for years and years. It weighs a ton and MJ can ride it like a champ. Jayden is very fond of it as well.

(If you are wondering why there aren’t family pictures with Sydney and Simone’s folks, it was because Robby wasn’t able to be there.)

Thanks to Megan and Danielle for rearranging your schedules to make this session happen. I love you girls!

I knew this was going to be killer, but the results knocked my expectations OUT OF THE PARK. Seriously, Mom!!! KILLER!!! Thank you so much! …wonder where those cute polka dot balloons are now? 😉

Oh my goodness–How darn cute are these pictures!! You managed to capture the cutest expressions on your adorable grandbabies. Loved the ones in the baskets with the baloons, in the wagon, on the tractor–okay, I loved them all. Simone’s piggy tail cuteness brought a smile to my face. But I laughed out loud (at work) when I saw Jayden’s expression when Danielle, Matt and MJ were making funny faces. I can almost read his thoughts. Terrific job, AGAIN, Mary. Love them.
