Merced 1st Birthday Photoshoot: Nolan

I could write a million words as to why my Godson, Nolan, is the cutest/best/most awesome kid on the planet–but I’ll spare you. He makes me so happy, and is so incredibly smart. And cute. And funny. And loving. And sweet. And the list goes on…

Nolan turned ONE on May 31st, which fell on a Saturday. It was so fun to celebrate his first birthday on the actual day! We started with a photo-shoot in his Grandparents backyard, then went to Rahilly Park in Merced for the festivities. His mom is SUCH a planner, and so creative–everything was perfect! For the first time in a LONG time, ALL of Nolan’s Aunt’s and Uncles were together! (Yes, we have a big family). It was so special. BIG thank you to Bree (Briana Gray Photography) for snapping a few photos of Nolan with Joe and I, and of him giving me his sweet kisses. We are so lucky to be his Godparents!


Grandpa almost pushed Mom’s face in the cake!
