Poor #3 (aka Jase- our third child).
With Katelyn, or #1, I would have had her party planned 6 months in advance. Invites hand created, stuffed in envelopes and mailed out 6 weeks in advance. Her portraits were probably done 1.5 months prior to her actual Birthday so I could create a storyboard and have them printed out by my professional photo lab to be displayed on matboard at her party.
And then Emmy, or #2, invites were made digitally but still mailed out. Photos were taken but by her 2 year old Birthday Party, I wasn’t printing out and displaying. I was actually pregnant with Jase and not feeling well so we had her party at Super Franks. It was lovely…they did it all for meBut then we came home to find that our house had been broken into
So…with Jase, or #3, I didn’t hand make his invites. I bought them off of Etsy- a digital file that I could email out :/ He didn’t have photos taken prior to his birthday to be displayed.
BUT the day of his birthday, I used some of his party supplies and created a quick backdrop. I put him in a new shirt he received at his party (thank you, Gma and Gpa!) and snapped away.
And, if I could go back, I wouldn’t change it. Because look at how cute and perfect these photos are!
