Last year I was invited to document three one year birthdays. I had met two of the birthday babies as newborns, which made it all extra special.
What these three birthday celebrations had in common was the amount of love, laughter, and excitement.
A one year old probably won’t remember any specific moments from their first birthday, but I think that the spirit of how they are celebrated and cherished stays with them for a long time.
Photographs can fill in the gaps later.
