i always love working with other creatives, especially one like the super talented Katie Christian Saunders from Pop and Grey! katie is my go-to girl for branding and web design (i can’t wait to work with her on my brand re-fresh this spring!). we had a great time eating some delicious donuts and shooting some fun environmental headshots of katie in action!

ever since luke was born his parents called him their little monkey, so naturally he had the most adorable monkey themed first birthday celebration!  luke was not too sure what he thought about the cupcakes, but the chocolate covered bananas were definitely a hit in his book!  it was the perfect day of family, fun and cute kiddos.
