I’ve known the Hawkey family for years! In fact, when I pulled into the drive way, I instantly remembers photographing Michaela’s first birthday in this very same yard! Here we are just over 8 years later and a few days shy of Quinn’s first birthday. We cuddled on the couch, then attempted a cake smash… which didn’t go according to plan! So instead we played in the garden, swung on the swings and rode the giraffe. You heard right… there was a giraffe.
It might have felt like chaos in the moment. The birthday girl absolutely hating her cake. Nate picking every flower in the garden, with the sweetest intentions of course. And Michaela attempting to turn the family photo shoot into her own personal session. These kids are a laugh a minute and I love spending time with them.
