It was so special to help take photos at the baptism of little Nicholas at the beautiful First United Methodist Church in Stafford, Kansas! The pastor there (Ben, my main man and usual second shooter) is part of a tight-knit group of friends that have made a point of getting together at least once a year since high school. Ben married Nicholas’s parents a few years ago, and the whole high school gang made the trip to Stafford for his baptism. That’s friendship, people — they came from Seattle, New York, and Chicago to be a part of this.
Oh my goodness, could little miss Tayla be any more adorable?? Her mom and dad wanted some photos to celebrate her upcoming first birthday, and I was happy to oblige! She was a little cranky and confused by the fake snow, but eventually we got that beautiful smile to come out. (And no, we didn’t let her eat any of the snow or ornaments!) I couldn’t resist taking some photos of the whole family at the very end of the session. Congratulations on the first year, and may there be many more happy years to come!
