Thank you Starla!

The week of Hudson's first birthday I was also going to get his one year pictures made. I was so excited! I bought a precious new outfit and we even got his first haircut. I was very exciting about these VERY important pictures! I was not so excited when I got the proofs. They were horrible!!! I was literally in tears when I saw them. The photographer only spent about thirty minutes with us and didn't seem to care how important these pictures were to me. I learned my lesson about trying a new photographer. A day or two later, I got an email from our wedding photographer about doing some family pics for Christmas cards. It was a sign and a slap in the face for trying someone new. I said YES!! I was so glad she was able to fit us into her schedule. She made this mommy very happy! She spent over two hours with us and was very patient with us and Hudson. I am so thankful for her and her amazing talent. She is sure to {capture} that perfect shot!

Look at that sweet red headed boy!

We were very blessed to use my Aunt and Uncle's farm for our pictures. They are very special to us and it meant a lot for us to be able to use their home for these special pictures. Starla also took our engagement pictures here. It was neat getting to take new pictures here now that our family has grown.
Hudson loves to clap! This was one of the only ways we could get a good picture of him...without the paci! He was pretty happy considering the next day was when I took him to the doctor with the flu!

Thanks again Starla for sharing your amazing talent with us! We are so thankful to have you to take all our special pictures.
