{DEAN} Almost ONE!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Today is all about LOVE and how appropriate that I am sharing a few of my little LOVE's pics from his first birthday shoot....oh how I LOVE them & him!

A huge thanks to my friend Karen of Karen Carpenter Photography -- she took all of these amazing photos!

My little man's 1st birthday is February 22nd and his "Little Mister Mustache Bash" is scheduled for this Sunday, February 20th! The theme of his party was the inspiration behind the outfit and props in the above two pics. **You're getting a little sneak peek of his party outfit here!

Karen specially made the adorable bunting in Dean's party colors in the pic above. Sticking with the "little mister/man" theme, I choose a "grandpa" cardigan sweater, simple stripe buttondown shirt and brought some "old man" props {newspaper, suitcase & my own reading}.

There was one more "manly" outfit and backdrop used {not pictured but one of my favs}.

Thank you again, Karen! LOVE them!
