I'll be honest, at first when I heard about the preschool graduation for Hudson, I thought it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but when I got there I found myself emotional and proud of all that Hudson had accomplished educationally over the last two years. The kid has learned a TON and grown a TON (he was the tallest out of his entire class)! Anyway, needless to say, Justin and I were really proud parents of a super handsome five year old that day!
I made him wear a button up and tie that day, it took some convincing that it was "okay to wear church clothes to school for graduation".
Afterward he told me, "Mom, they got it wrong, I want to be a BASKETBALL player when I grow up!" Cute, but not as funny as the other kid in his class that wanted to work at Nordstrom when he got older, lol!
Now onto Kindergarten....I'm not sure if I'M ready for this! Ready or not, bring it on!
Lola Dee was born to Kenny + Jill on April 22nd, 2010! What a sweet day that was!
Before I get started on the birth story, I absolutely have to show off the baby shower that a bunch of us girls threw for Jill. It was a "book worm" theme since Jill is such a scholar herself. We thought it was a perfect theme also since we still had no idea what sex the baby was.
The invitations were a labor of love, it took hours, but WORTH IT!
My good friend Sarah made all of these little book covers of famous children's books as cupcake toppers.
I remember a conversation before Jill announced that she was pregnant (I had a hunch that she was), she said that she wanted me to shoot her first birth story. This was a pleasant surprise, I just figured as her sister in-law I wouldn't be in the room when it was time for Jill to give birth. Then a few months later she announced that she was 5 months pregnant!! She hid it pretty well, but I was SO excited and looked forward to the day that I got to spend in the hospital ready to meet Kenny + Jill's first baby!
I have to admit that I cried a little editing these next four photos. Ohhhh, the whirlwind of emotions labor brings, and it was so sweet to see Kenny caring for Jill during her tough hours of pushing.
I do have to give shout out to Kenny for the amazing job he is doing as a dad, I'm a proud sister! Also, an even bigger shout-out to his AMAZING post processing company FOTOFAFA for continually giving my business beautiful proofed images and the freedom to take time for my personal life! If you own a photography business and aren't outsourcing your post processing, I would HIGHLY recommend doing that now and I would definitely recommend using Fotofafa's services!
