Happy 21st Birthday

Hard to believe because it seems like the time has gone so fast, but my son London is 21 today. A couple of weekends ago, we were lucky enough to spend some time with he and his young family.

We probably should have told him what we were going to do, but that would have spoiled the fun. We went to dinner at his old favorite Mexican restaurant, El Nopal. That wasn’t the issue. Misty made sure that the restaurant knew it was his birthday so why not smash whipped cream into his beard?

Plus, this gives me the chance to show off photos of his greatest present ever, Jeremiah. I always felt that about my kids so it’s nice to know that he feels the same way. Happy birthday son. I love you more than ever.

And yes, when we leave El Nopal, the table always looks like this. We enjoy having a good time.

Birthday at Shady Villa

Just wanted to post a quick gallery of the birthday gathering we had for Misty last night. I wouldn’t really call it a birthday party because we didn’t do the whole singing-and-blowing-out-candles thing. Just a gathering of neighbors and friends. Continue reading “Birthday at Shady Villa”

Archer’s Birthday

I’ve been going back and forth about what to do with my website and, in particular, my blog. I’ve been on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and any other social network of any import trying to figure out how to make the best impression for SEO and Google purposes. Continue reading “Archer’s Birthday”

Birthday Mini with Mia

As you can see from the cover photo of this entry, Mia is one heck of a happy personality and her joy is contagious. She exudes fun and the whole time we did her two-year-old birthday mini-session, she was a breeze to work with. As you’ll see from the photos, it was nothing but good times.

Years in the making with Makenna

Makenna by Tim GirtonIt took a while, but I finally got a chance to shoot photos with the lovely Makenna. And it started before she was even born. But look at that face and that expression. How blessed am I to be able to capture that cuteness. Continue reading “Years in the making with Makenna”

Seeing double in Iroquois Park

Easton and Lucas are one year old by Tim Girton

Baby’s first birthday is such a momentous event, especially for new parents. So we were blessed to enjoy double the momentous-ness (let me have this one, grammar police) when we got the chance to work with twins Easton and Lucas. Continue reading “Seeing double in Iroquois Park”

A teenager in the house

London's Birthday by Tim Girton

 

We recently celebrated the birthday of my son, London. One of the names I call him is “kiddo.” I won’t go into some of the other names because they belonged to a real kid. London just joined the ranks of the teenagers. Oh joy. Continue reading “A teenager in the house”
