Balloons at the Beach

20 Aug

Dudes – the beach is windy.

But windy hair outtakes are a post for another day.  (Remember my eye blinking post?  One of my best most embarrassing!)

So turning the big oh-one definitely calls for a photo shoot.  About a week after the little man’s 1st birthday, we threw a bunch of props, snacks, and outfits into the car and got our behinds to the beach to cheese it up.  Our original plan was to have the photos taken at Station 12 on Sullivan’s Island, an awesome spot for pics and sunsets.  But, the INCREDIBLY HIGH tide forced us into Plan B.  We quickly decided on Station 30 and it was perfect!

The very sweet and talented Jan Tyler took these photos for us and we couldn’t be more thrilled.  Thank you, Jan!!!  Capturing our little man 6 short days before he really figured out the whole walking independently thing is truly like catching a memory in box.  We luckily get to keep this box forever.

Now onto figuring out how to wrangle a walking baby at the beach.  Hmm!

We are so happy that you were appropriately captured in your scrunchy nose phase.  OH and that hair – the swoop that needs encouragement to stay swooped.  LOVE!  Mommy is sorry for all of the outfit changes, but LOOK AT HOW CUTE YOU ARE!!!  Eating your favorite snacks (puffs and goldfish) definitely kept you happy during this shoot.  Playing “Pump up the Jam” on your favorite little car kept you dancing (one of your favorite things to do!), even when you were fussing about the dry sand on your feet.  And speaking of sand, you find it absolutely delicious.  The taste and texture are apparently your jam.  Just one question…where does it go?  ’Cause Mama has yet to find a trace in your diaper like all her Mama friends said that she would.  Anyway, thank you for humoring us by smiling every once in a while despite your crazy parents’ repetitive monkey noise attempts and funny face-making.  Yes, we are complete lunatics and no, it will never stop.  You sure know how to keep us humble.  But for reals – YOU ARE THE BEST!  We love you to a million heart-shaped pieces and hope to make this an annual photo shoot event!  Beach, balloons, wind – all of it!

















p.s. The 12-months-of-balloons has concluded and BOY is my husband happy!!! A post with all 12 months someday soon.  Oh, who I am kidding?  Soon could mean before this little man turns TWO!




High Temperature: 90° (with 85% humidity!)
