a 1st taste of cake.

when we got engaged 3 years ago, i was on the hunt for wedding photographers and i came across Jenna Leigh. i became in love with her photos right then and there. you can imagine my disappointment when i learned that she was already booked for our wedding date. 
unfortunately, jenna lives in Wisconsin - a good 6-7 hours away from me. :( 
fortunately, isaiah's work company has their annual meeting where Jenna lives every July! even though weddings are her specialty, i had to ask if she would shoot our family for Crue's 12 month session.

after stalking many blog posts, instagram photos and Facebook chats we finally got to meet and frolic in the sunset. 
it was nothing sort of dreamy.

C was super dainty with his cake and quite confused at first. with just his little fingers he kept swiping the frosting back and forth, back and forth.
