Thank you to Portrait Innovations for inviting us to come in for Teagan’s birthday & Holiday Pictures.
Over the years we have tried to get professional pictures for our family but also around the kids’ birthdays. I love looking back at the pictures and seeing how much they have grown. This year, our picture schedule was a bit mixed up. We decided to have our family pictures taken on the beach while on vacation and happened to be away during Teagan’s 5th birthday, which means we are a bit behind schedule.
When I had the opportunity to head over to our local Portrait Innovations in Loveland Colorado I was so excited to not only have a day with just Teagan but to experience this studio for a milestone session as well as a little holiday fun.
I am going to apologize ahead of time for the massive amount of pictures I am going to be sharing in this post! AH! They are all so perfect! We have had one experience with Portrait Innovations so I knew I would be getting some great photos. Our other experience was when we were in Arizona with family, we decided to get family pictures so there was a group of 11 and even with the crazy kids we ended up with some fantastic photos.
From the moment we walked into the studio I could tell that this store was a well run business. We got checked in and got to business. There were two areas of the store that were set up for photographing, one was perfectly decorated for the holidays and the other was more traditional. Since we wanted both some holiday photos and birthday photos we were able to experience this set up perfectly.
Our photographer was amazing. She talked directly to Teagan and was great with her. Normally Teagan is pretty easy to work with but because she missed a nap and had a busy weekend she was a bit crazy but you would never know this when you look at the pictures. Another thing I loved about our photographer was that she took the time to fix Teagan’s hair, dress and headband when needed. THANK YOU!!
Our first background was the holiday fireplace with candles and stockings. Her super sparkly dress went perfectly with this holiday theme. We have never done a holiday theme for our pictures but because Teagan’s birthday pictures were done a little later in the year than normal, we decided that it would be fun to add a little holiday flair!
I was able to choose other background options but most of the time I second guess myself on what looks good, so I followed Elsa and LET IT GO. Our photographer used her creative talent to find the perfect backgrounds and as you can see, she did wonderfully.
Now this picture…oh my heart. Her face, it is magical. I love the creativity that Portrait Innovations gives their photographers. Precious!! Nothing says Christmas like cookies and milk for Santa!
And now it is time to talk about our little lady turning 5!! FIVE! How is that possible? As you can see from these pictures, she is turning out to be a lovely little lady. She loves all things sparkly and girly. She would wear a sparkly dress every day if we let her. She certainly has her sassy side but mostly, Teagan is a caring, fun and creative girl.
Every year we go to the doctor for her check-up we have loved sharing her stats with you. These kinds of posts always take me back to the original days of my blog, it was my journal and I still love looking back on these milestone posts. So, once again I am here to share how Teagan has grown!!
Teagan’s 5 Year Old Stats:
Height: 43 inches – 73%
Weight: 40 pounds – 51%
She checked out perfectly at the doctor this year. Healthy, growing and happy! Love hearing that. She is pretty tall for her age, which we can notice now when she puts on her winter clothes from last year! I should add, she was VERY upset about getting her shots this year, oh man that sass comes out strong sometimes.
Things I Don’t Want to Forget:
- Teagan’s favorite color is rainbow.
- She loves to pick out her own clothes every morning.
- Teagan loves going to dance, swimming and T-ball.
- She is learning how to read very quickly.
- She loves avocados, cucumbers and tomatoes.
- She wears size 5T or XS girls.
- Teagan enjoys riding her scooter and bike.
- She loves getting her nails done with me.
- Very strong willed.
- Picky eater!
- Has a special love for Unicorns!
- Teagan can talk anyone’s ear off.
