I had to miss her birthday party this year (which was held ON A BOAT!) because I was, well, on a boat myself... cruising the Carribbean : )
I wouldn't have let this special time of year pass without having a portrait session for Kendall, though. Her mom wanted something outdoorsy so we set out for the beautiful umbrella of oak trees along North Boulevard. She was absolutely precious in her little fruity dress, complete with balloons and a no lack of spirit and spunk! We had such fun as she ran away, came back, ran away, came back, and practiced her balancing skills on the roots of the giant trees.
Afterward, we headed over to Sugarbabies for some celebratory cupcakes. It's hard to believe that Kendall was ever the little round cheeky baby you see on the back of my business cards these days; she's growing into such a smart and beautiful girl. There's always something new to talk about each time I see her, and this past year I've gone from being "Tay-tee" to being "Kay-shee". I can't wait to see what she has in store for us during her fifth year : )
