This tree swing was a DIY labor of love and I am completely IN LOVE how it turned out!

A big thank you to Will’s mama for choosing me to capture his first year. It’s always an honor to witness the tremendous changes in these little people over the first year. This little fella had me at
hello…big brown eyes! :) The sweet baby teeth…aaannd dimples?! Holy cuteness! And the super bonus…a thumb sucker. I am a complete sucker for the thumb suckers. Is there anything more adorable? Surely not.
