So after 4 days of MUCH anticipation, I got the pictures from Tinley's birthday party from our photographer. I LOVE THEM. I highly recommend to all of my gal pals out there that might be in full-force planning mode with your little man or girl's first (or second, or third!) birthday that you hire a photographer. Best decision ever. Even if you just have a friend or family member take pictures for you. Trust me, you won't regret it. We didn't have to worry about missing any of the moments that you want on camera, or have to spend time at the party on our phones or camera. And, she made sure to get at least one picture of everyone at the party. Our photographer was Jamie Meyers, owner of 1826 Photographic. She also happens to be a friend of our's, and used to work with Justin. You can check out her website here. Anyway, she took 155 pictures, so I've tried to narrow down some of my faves to share with you. Hope you enjoy. :o)
