It goes without saying that every mother, dads too, feel that their children grow up way too fast. We are exactly one week to the date of celebrating our little guys first birthday. FIRST BIRTHDAY!? Really? ALREADY?!?!?! Seriously where did the time go?
A year ago this weekend I was as big as a whale and about to shoot a 12 hour wedding…yes you read that correctly. I was 8.5 months pregnant and I still shot a 12 hour wedding…longest day of my life :)
As my little man grows I have been very diligent on capturing photos at every month and any little events in-between. Its crazy to see where they started and how much they are changing on a monthly basis. This past wednesday proved to be another one of those “Really? Its time for this already?” moments and the camera was not going to miss it.
My “dude” as our family lovingly calls him was headed off to his first hair cut this week. Daddy was not to sure as he really liked the little hockey head he was growing. His hair is a beautiful golden shade of blonde with these cute little curled ends and wings over his ears. Super cute right? So why I was I cutting them off? Its not so much that I wanted to cut them off but he had a serious case of “mop top” happening and I wanted it cleaned up for his birthday party. My sister and I loaded Dude up in the car and headed to KML Studios, so conveniently relocated to just around the corner from us :)
We were greeted at the door by his personal hairstylist, Krystal. We took off his coat and let him adjust to his environment a little. Krystal showed him the super cool Mickey Mouse Cape. He liked it when she was holding it but not so much when she went to put it on him. So Auntie Dana gladly picked him and sat in the chair with him for this adventure.
Your such a big boy and your not even one yet :(
Some times you have to get a little creative with helping a little one settle. He was unsure of things happening behind him that he couldn’t see, so I did what any mom would do and grabbed a sucker lol (no he has never had one before so this was a big treat)
Even Krystal had to get creative with how she was going to cut his hair!
All cleaned up and looking like a rock star!!
I have to admit for not knowing what was really happening around him he did a really great job at being my brave little man. No crying, a little squirming but all in all he was still his happy little self at the end. I can’t believe your going to be 1 years old next week….what am I going to do?
Id like to give a BIG thank you to KML Studios for allowing me to photograph this milestone in Logans life and especially to Krystal for giving him the coolest hair cut ever!
Feel free to stop in at KML and enjoy their services and sparkling new location!
