Happy First Birthday Mateo! Another First Year baby recently celebrated his birthday and I just can’t believe it. There is no better word to describe how I’m feeling than bittersweet. I’ve spent a whole year watching this little boy’s story unfold. I watched his parents excitedly anticipate his arrival. I held him at only 8 days old. I smiled in awe at how many rolls he had at just 6 months. I laughed as I watched him with his smash cake during his first birthday portraits.
Sweet Mateo, never forget what a wonderful boy you are. You are smart, sweet and ever so curious. May you learn and experience lots of new and wonderful things, but never forget where you came from! You have two parents who love you so much and a photographer who will always be grateful to capture your story!
Thank you to Shari, Javier and Mateo for welcoming me into your lives! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for your little guy. Here’s a peek at Mateo’s first birthday portraits:
