We had some new family pictures taken on Preston's 1st birthday, June 13th. All photos are by my Dad, Ron Southworth. If you are ever looking for a photographer to take your portraits, he is really amazing. (click on his name to link to his site). I know we are super lucky to have him take all of our pictures.
Preston missed his afternoon nap for these photos, and while he was a real sport about it, it was not easy keeping him happy and smiling. So even though we got a lot of cute pictures of him, we never got that signature "Preston smile".
So because I don't feel like spending the next 45 minutes trying to arrange these pictures within this post (I really wish Blogger would make arranging photos easier within post edits), these are all totally in random order.
These next sequence of photos are kinda funny...
Guess the little guy didn't appreciate his parents smooching behind his back - :)

And then there were a few where Preston just had hilarious facial expressions...
By the way, that puppy he got as a gift for his birthday from his baby friend, Kara (thank you High Family!). He LOVED that dog so much, and it ended up being the only thing that would console him towards the end of the photo shoot. Don't ask me why he loves to suck on his nose though. He does that to his other stuffed animals too.
Thanks Dad for taking such beautiful photos!
