Sunshine and lemonade ~ a BOYs lemonade stand birthday party!

My littlest guy just turned ONE. I have noooo idea how that happened. He was born. I blinked. He turned one. It’s insane. Time really does go by faster and faster the older you get, it’s so unfair. What an amazing year it was, not without its hard times of course, but overall this baby is just the sweetest chunk of love I know. He completes our family in the most perfect way. I had a really hard time deciding what theme to do his party. I’ve always loved the lemonade stand parties I saw all over pinterest, but you always see those for girls – pink lemonade. I toyed with ditching the lemonade theme and doing something else, but I wanted to do it so bad that I decided to put my own spin on it. I did find a few others who did it and spun off of their ideas, combining a ‘You are my sunshine’ and lemonade stand theme together, to be Sunshine and Lemonade. I had SO much fun with this party, I’m so glad I went with the theme I really wanted 🙂 And now I have proven that you can do a little boy’s lemonade stand birthday party too!boy lemonade stand partyMy husband totally blew me away with this lemonade stand he made out of old pallets. It exceeded my wishes by far! I got pinwheels off etsy, found printables for the drink tags on pinterest, and used old and new mason jars for the drinks and decorations. The lids on the drink jars were from amazon. Lemons were an easy and obvious addition to the decorations 😉boys lemonade stand partyThe straws and bowl were from home goods and the lemonade dispenser was from Zulily. I had the crates from newborn props, and the basket with the cookies was something I had in the kitchen. The cookie favors were Annie’s Eats lemon and vanilla bean white sugar cookies (slightly modified) with Alton Brown’s royal icing.boy lemonade partyIt was pretty windy so you can’t see all the photos here, but I printed out 4 photos plus his monthly sock monkey photo for each month of the first year and strung them up here. I had done something similar for Jameson’s first birthday, only I hung the strings all over instead of in one spot. I made chocolate cupcakes, but also this lemonade cake.lemonade stand cake smash picturesAnd of course the birthday boy got an extra large chocolate cupcake for a cake smash! We did a cake smash on his actual birthday too, but I couldn’t resist letting him go at it again, especially in front of the lemonade stand 😉 It made for such a cute backdrop!lemonade cake smashlemonade stand cake smashHe’s a big fan of food, but especially cake  now too 😉 Overall it was just such a fun party, and it all went off so great! Happy birthday sweet boy, love you forever.

I’ve been photographing this family for a while, they are also great friends of mine! They hold a special place in my heart. You may remember their sweet girl from her newborn session last year! Now she’s one and her brother is three and I’m once again left blown away at just how fast time flies.

Baby Makes Four | Littleton, MA Newborn Photographer Metro West

I’ve been having a string of babies with aahhh-mazing hair! This sweet girl is a dear friend’s second baby, and it was my absolute pleasure and honor to do her newborn photos, just like I did her big sister’s two and a half years ago 😉 I had a bunch of new things planned for her, but had to throw in some natural simple setups too. Sometimes the most beautiful thing of all is just that sweet baby with no distractions.

Birthday Girl | Carlisle, MA Baby Photographer Metro West Central Mass

This sweet baby girl is just a little older than my bubba baby. That means his birthday is coming up so fast. I can’t even believe it! I met up with this family at one of my favorite locations to take some portraits of her and her parents. She is just the cutest thing, I loved this session so much!

New Little Baby Sister | Littleton, MA Newborn Photographer

This family is one of the first I ever photographed after starting my business. I’ve seen them every year since, and this year I get to see them a little more often, because they have a sweet new baby to document! We met up for their maternity shoot a little while ago, and now here is their brand new baby girl. Isn’t she just beautiful??I love her little toes showing through the wrap!I don’t know that I’ve ever had a newborn with lashes so long. Stunning.
