Maverick's First Birthday

I've always loved the excitement, curiosity, and often confusion that comes with placing a full cake in front of babies on their first birthday. The exploration is so much fun to watch, and Maverick's party was a complete delight to photograph. The Birthday Boy started off tentatively before diving into his blue frosting! And his party was so sweet; Mom and Dad, Abby and Ian, went all out with homemade banners, sailboat-themed cupcakes, and a barbecue feast.

Grandma gave Maverick some adorable moccasins for his birthday. I love the look of the hands in this multi-generational photo.

Happy Birthday Maverick-- and thanks to Ian and Abby for letting me be part of such an awesome family moment!
