Back in January, my friend Amy asked me if she could book me to photograph her son’s first birthday party the first weekend in March. In January, March seems so far off. Before I knew it though, a few snow falls later, it was time to celebrate Cooper’s first birthday!
Amy went all-out with a Very Hungry Caterpillar theme, taking ideas from all over Pinterest and the internet to create an adorable celebration for her even more adorable boy!
The decorations were completely adorable, and kept the theme throughout the entire party. Amy designed all the printables, and put together all of the decorations herself with the help of her mom.

Six tissue paper decorations, cleverly put together and made into a caterpillar!
All of the food was themed as well, and each was labeled with a quote from the book. Our friend Laura made an adorable caterpillar cupcake cake, as well as a giant cupcake smash cake, and a friend of Amy’s made the fantastic two-tiered themed full-sized cake.
We made some time as well to take some first birthday family portraits, and some candids of the birthday boy as well:
Thank you, Amy and Matt, for trusting me to capture your son’s first birthday! I had a blast and I hope you love your photos as much as I do! Amy, I’m coming to you someday when we have a first birthday to plan!!
Much love to you all, and another very happy birthday to adorable Cooper!
