Cupcakes & Little Red Wagons: Travis’ 1st Birthday | Bastrop Family Photographer

This weekend I had the sincere privilege of documenting a very special day, and I’m so thankful. What an amazing thing I get to do with this camera of mine!

Dear Travis,

I know you won’t be reading this for years, but I wanted to give you a first birthday gift that you can have for the rest of your life. I’ve been lucky enough to become friends with your parents. I know how badly they wanted you and how thrilled they were when they found out you were on your way. I still remember the morning at the office when I heard about Little Baby White; the excitement and the joy in your mother’s eyes were unmistakable. Each week the girls at work would get an update on how you were doing and as soon as you were old enough, she brought you in to show you off. You are so blessed to have parents that love you so deeply, and I know that this first year is just the beginning of many, many years of love and laughter that you all will have as a family. Happy first birthday! Thank you for letting me share your cupcakes and your big day.

Krista did all of the cupcakes and the decorations by herself. I adore the little red wagon theme that she picked; I’ve never seen a children’s birthday party with that theme before and it just takes you back to the good ol’ days. Krista, I know you’re a writer by profession, but if you ever decide to give event planning a try, I think you’d have a good start! You are so creative.

Speaking of creative, one of Travis’ gifts (his favorite gift by far, I would say) was a little red race car so Krista designed and created for Travis his very own gas pump! I know! I’ve never seen anything like it. Adorable.

Y’all know I’m a sucker for a cute puppy! This is Miss Saige, and she is quite possibly the sweetest little thing you’ll ever meet. I almost tried to take her home with me while everyone else was distracted by the presents.

The little red racer; is this kid going to be cruising or what?

You know it’s a Texas party when there’s plenty of root beer and Dr. Pepper.

Now for the best part, the little man himself. Seriously, is he not one of the cutest kids you’ve ever seen?

Is this the face of a mother in love with her son or what? If you can believe it, Travis’ face lights up even more any time he sees either Mom or Dad. It just melts your heart.

Not so sure what to expect, he started off with a little taste of the icing…

And then he figured out how it’s done and went in for the big bites! This is my kinda kid.
