With Amelia celebrating her first birthday very soon, I got together with the little one and Mandy and Josh for some new family photos. We met in Southern Indiana, so that the Louisville skyline would be sit behind us. Mandy and Josh had their wedding photos taken here – they wanted to recreate them with Amelia. Sweet, sweet Amelia.
I am always amazed at how fast these babies grow, how much they resemble their parents and how much my friends have transformed. The Hillmans are no exception – I can’t help but smile when I see Mandy talk to her daughter or when Josh whisks her up into the air – they both have pure joy across their faces. A happy family, always enjoying one another’s company and helping Amelia grow into a sweet little girl.
Mandy brought along a mirror – hot pink, of course – and had the idea to let Amelia look at herself. Such a fun idea and I loved watching Amelia watch her reflection. But my favorites are the ones of her looking back me.
*look at those cheeks*
With big plans of a Minnie Mouse birthday party for her first birthday, Amelia’s grandma made her a matching onesie and bloomers. Mandy constructed a bright pink tutu to wear with it. It was over-the-top cuteness, so we had to a get photograph their handiwork.
Such a lucky girl to have so many people love her.
Happy Birthday to Amelia. And well wishes to my friends Josh and Mandy – here’s to many more Disney-inspired birthdays. :)
