Little Dean celebrated his first birthday with a big cake small one year old session at Pope Farm Conservancy in Middleton.  Things got a little messy.  We’ve really enjoyed photographing and documenting Dean and his family over the last year!

Happy 1st Birthday Kohen-Middleton, WI photographer

Dear Kohen,
Somewhere in the midst of you learning to hold your headup , crawling, and now walking, you grew into my smiley, little one-year-old.
I can hardly swallow the words as they roll off of my tongue, “one-year-old,” where did this year go?
Weren’t we just telling everyone the news that you were going to be joining our family?   Weren’t we just driving to the hospital on that unseasonably warm November day? Weren’t we just sitting in triage, terrified, as we heard the woman feet away from us giving birth to her precious little one through the paper thin curtain? And didn’t you just join this world, as your Dad smiled at me and said, “it’s a baby boy!”
And now suddenly you are a sweet, little one year old…dare I say it?  Boy. Yesterday, as I was getting ready for your party, I saw glimpses of silver mixed in with my dark hair. A sign that not only you’re getting older, but I am as well. I know this could make me sad under normal circumstances, but it made me smile big! I am so happy with my life, and so happy to be getting older, because with age has come the greatest gifts of all. You and Koeplin!
I love to watch you grow and change everyday. Love seeing you discover and learn new things. You have such a gentle, kind soul. There are times that we get glimpses of who you are and what you will be, sometimes when you smile at me I see a flash of you when you are grown.  I may be partial, but I think you are going to grow up to be a wonderful man. You are shy at first, but once you warm up to others you are a little lover. You love snuggling, singing, and climbing…oh my, do you ever like to climb. The stairs, our wine rack, anything you can find to climb up you do…you are our little monkey!  You prefer your brothers toys over your own, and most days your brother is happy to share with you. I love seeing the bond you and your brother have grow. I know there will be huge, blowout fights between the two of you. I know there will be times that you think you hate one another. But I hope all of that is overshadowed by the wonderful times you have growing up together, being little boys; digging in the dirt, building forts and playing with trucks. I hope that you are one anothers best friend! I’m sure there will be days all the testosterone in our house will get to me, but it makes me smile when I imagine you guys throwing the football around with your Dad, or all watching the game together. And we are going to take some great adventures when you and your brother get a little older. We have so much to look forward to!
Your Dad, Koeplin and I were already happy before we had you, but somehow you have brought even more happiness to our family this past year. We are so lucky to have you. I hope we can make you as happy as you have made us. Today we celebrate the birth of you dear little Kohen. I wish I could keep you little forever, so please don’t grow up too fast!
Happy first Birthday baby, boy.
Love, Momma

Where did the last year go?!  My little baby is going to be 1 in less than 2 weeks!  I will wait to get all sentimental on you for his Birthday post, but wanted to share some more of Kohen’s 1 year photo shoot as well as the photograph we selected as ‘the shot’ for his card.  He absolutely loved playing in his cake and eating it too.  (with no teeth mind you!)  – April

Kohen’s turning One, birthday shoot – Middleton, Wisconsin children’s photographer

Today, we were able to take a break from editing and squeeze in Kohen’s shoot for his 1st birthday.  Although the party is still a few weeks off, we seriously need to get the invites out and it seems to only be getting colder by the day, meaning diaper wearing weather is slowly slipping away (Babies Best Bottoms, by the way).  The first 5 locations we attempted to shoot at didn’t work for us due to lighting or wind and with older brother and birthday boy getting crabby in the back seat, I was just about to pull the plug on the idea of shooting for the day when April said “what would we do if it was a real shoot?’ (referring to if it was for a client and not us).  Obviously we would find a way to make it work if possible, and just then right on cue we happened upon the perfect spot.  No wind, warm, cool backdrop, and a perfect cloud just about to move into position to diffuse the light.  Kohen did an amazing job, unlike his older brother who took one lick of his cake in the the same scenario and proceeded to throw a huge fit acting like we were out of our mind to be setting so much sugar in front of such a small child.  Now that Koeplin can talk and we can understand more of what goes through his head, it probably had more to do with the fact that is was messy and felt weird (the cake).  Kohen however was a champ and would of sat there playing and occasionally eating frosting off of the cake all day long.  He was also more than willing to share, and his brother took him up on it more than once.  We got ‘the shot’ that will characterize our little one’s 1st birthday.  We’re excited to share it with you, but want to make sure the cards are out and received by family before doing so.  In the meantime here’s a teaser of all the fun we had.  – Derrick
