Charlie's First Birthday Party - First Birthday Party Photography

Planning a party with a husband with a broken leg was not an easy task, but I must say, it was a fun party.  This weekend we celebrated Charlie's First Birthday!  Charlie had a blast walking around to each person and getting lots of love!  Good wine, burgers, and cheesecake made the night extra yummy.  The funniest part of the party?  Charlie eating or NOT eating cake...you'll see below.... I was so proud of myself for getting all set up in time so I can take photos of everything, but then at the end of the party I realized I only picked up my camera ONCE during the entire night.  I was so sad.  So this is why people hire photographers!!!!  Then I remembered, Jake's dad had a camera in his hand the entire night and I suddenly was not sad anymore!  All the detail shots are from me and all the fun party shots are Jake's dad.  So thankful for him and his camera! ;)  Together we pretty much got the party covered without even knowing it.

I am so thankful for everyone's help!  I could not have done this alone!  Thank you for making this such a special party.

Happy Birthday Charlie!
