Luca’s Where the Wild Things Are Inspired 1st Birthday Shoot

I know that my blog is a little dusty, but I can’t help but share our sweet Luca’s 1st Birthday photos! On October 21, our baby turned ONE. Fastest. Year. Of. My. Life. Yes, it goes even faster the 2nd time around. We had his photos taken on his actual birthday, and the photographer was…yours truly!

We decided to do a “Where the Wild Things Are” themed photo shoot and 1st Birthday Party for our little guy, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!

I’ll let the pictures do the talking:
