Southern Indiana and Louisville Children’s Photographer | Emerson

You guys know that I am ALL about a themed party. From our Mad Men Christmas party to my girl’s Jimmy Fallon first birthday (apparently I never blogged that?), I LOVE a good theme. So, when Emily told me that this party was going to be Parks and Rec themed, you KNOW I was IN! Emerson rang in his first birthday with friends and family, all enjoying the Parks and Rec details. From his Li’l Sebastian shirt to the hand-drawn festival banner, there were SO many things to love about this party. DJ Roomba and Leslie’s favorite meal from the one and only J. J.’s Diner… From the frisbee plates to the waffle bar, the spread was so perfect. Bacon (“just give me ALL the bacon and eggs you have”), fry-fry-chick-chick, and a “low-call calzone zone” were followed with some incredible sweet treats: Li’l Sebastian cookies (from the one and only 410 Bakery), “treat yo’self” truffles, and Andy’s mouth surprise (“the flavor of the Starbursts really bring out a similar flavor in the Skittles”). And then, there was the cake. Parks and Rec fans, you’ll know it and you’ll love it: it’s The Pit (including an actual Chris Pratt figure). I don’t think there’s a more fitting dessert to such a perfectly themed day. Friends, this was a day for the books. Thank you, Sheffields, for having me. It was SO much fun!!

  • When we moved to our old neighborhood almost five years ago, we knew we’d love the house/the location/the proximity to everything amazing (hello, Target 👋🏻). What we didn’t know was how much we would love the people living next door. No longer neighbors, forever our friends. ♥️ So thankful to have spent the last few days with these two, already counting down to seeing them again.

  • yesterday, her birthday dreams came true: she saw a real-life sloth, which is her absolute favorite animal, and she hasn’t stopped talking about it since 😆❤️ (he’s hard to spot in the photo, he’s napping on the platform above her 😴)

  • Winnie, you are 3. 🎈🎉

Today is our golden girl’s golden birthday. ✨ We love her more than words could say. She is fire and light and nonstop energy. We are overwhelmingly thankful for her. We know that every day is such a treasure with her, and we will never be sad to see her grow up, even if it is happening so fast. She is our greatest gift, and we can’t believe she’s already 3!

  • we had a little “party” for our girl yesterday 🍕🎉 so far, I’ve loved theming her birthday and making her invitation every year 👏🏻 and this year, that’s about all I did - I made an invitation and then didn’t actually plan the party 😬😂 so with minimal, last-minute decorating and a crazy looking pizza dessert (#nailedit 🏆), we celebrated this sweet girl with her favorite food and some of her favorite people by her side. ♥️ (swipe 👉🏻 for some Pinterest-worthy baking inspo 🍕🍪🤪)

also, a side note... Instagram tells me that I should only post at 9pm because that’s when my greatest “engagement” is 🙄 help me prove that statistic wrong with a like/comment/why not both? k, thanks, you’re the best. 😘
