Connor Turns One {birthday}

To see the new website and blog, visit Brooke Murphy Photography {here}!

I fell in love with Connor the first time I met him.  His big blue eyes.  Those little lips.  His beyond adorable kissy face.  Love, I say.

So you can only imagine my excitement when Laura, Connor’s mom, told me she wanted to do some holiday photos.  I couldn’t WAIT to see Connor!  And boy had he grown.  That little tater tot got taller, had a little boy’s haircut and just looked so different since this summer.  But Laura had an idea of her sleeve to celebrate Connor’s upcoming birthday.  A cake smash. :)

I showed up that morning ready for holiday family photos.  And holiday family photos we got.  But getting down in the floor with Connor, watching his reactions to a big blue cupcake and laughing at mom and dad?  That was the icing on the cake.  I loved every minute of it – and was so happy to celebrate a mini-cake smash with the Daugherty family.

The Birthday Boy.  How sweet is that face?  And that belly button?

*I melt*

I hope Connor had a great birthday party with family and that everyone loved his birthday portraits.  He’s such a sweet little man, loved by many, but I know Laura and Stephan are over the moon for him.  As they should be.  Because he’s spectactular.

Happy first birthday, Connor.
