Kendall is One!

When you’re a little girl you always talk and think about, “One day when I’m married…” and “When I have my own kids…” and it’s crazy to think that that time is now.  Life just goes by in the blink of an eye.  It really hits me just how fast life goes by when I reconnect with an old friend and get to meet their own family.

Kari and I first met on the soccer field.  Razzmatazz in fifth grade if I remember correctly.  We grew up on the soccer fields together and were friends through junior high and high school.  She used to pick me up in her purple Honda Civic because I was the very last one to turn 16.  We went to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm together and bonded because we were practically the only kids in our grade who didn’t like to party.  But, then she went off to college in Idaho and we eventually lost touch until we ran into each other a couple of years ago and now stay in touch thanks to good old Facebook :)

Kari and her husband Roger had their first baby last summer and I was so honored when Kari asked me to take her one year pictures.  It was my first time getting to meet Kendall and she is adorable and perfect and everything I would expect from Kari’s daughter.  It’s just crazy to me that we have kids!  Weren’t we just graduating from high school?

Thank you again Kari for letting me capture this special time in Kendall’s life!  It was great seeing you and catching up.  Let’s not let years go by before we do it again!  Here’s your slideshow!

    Drew! These are adorable. I’m wondering how you get pics like the second to last one with her on the blanket to turn out. Seems like when I try to do stuff like that from “far away” I cannot get the exposure on the face correct. I would love it if you could help me figure this one out!

  3. What a cutie! I LOVE that wide shot on the beach, eating cake, with her party hat, and sun making that awesome glow.

    One of my favorite places in all the universe! Gotta go early for breakfast and mamosa’s and these incredible homemade donuts at the BeachComber and then watch dolphin pods play in the surf! Love love love your setting.
    Last shot is great, with the reflection captured and baby deeeeeep in baby thought. Awesome.

    These are too cute! I LOVE Crystal Cove! My husband and I were down in Newport last October for a golf weekend and we went to dinner down there. Such great character!

    Pretty much want to move to Crystal Cove. Or at least stay there for a night. Why does it have to be so impossible. Someday….
