Jessica has been part of the Hayes & Fisk family for over 10 years. Her love of children is what originally brought her to us and our love of her and baby Carter is what will keep her with us for a long time to come! Jessica, her husband Alex and her son Carter all hold a special place in our heart and we feel so blessed to consider them part of our family.

Many of you will remember our first post on baby Carter a little over a year ago, when he was born. Now he has turned ONE and we wanted to share his first year with each of you. Our clients were so excited for Jessica, when Carter was born, and you all are always asking for updates and pictures of this adorable little boy.

We are thrilled to share with you Carter’s First Year in pictures and we thought we would also tell you a few cute characteristics and personality traits that melt our hearts.

First word – mama …As Jessica will tell you; he didn’t have a choice – she coaxed him. Followed by dada, of course. And then dog.

Favorite foods– Ice Cream (of course!), lima beans, Ritz crackers & ravioli

Favorite toy– Mom’s iPhone! And any ball..Soccer ball, encouraged by dad of course

Loves to dance – country music is his fav. Jessica says “At least he likes music like me, because he sure doesn’t look like me!”

He’s a total joker – Carter likes playing tricks on mom & dad. Jessica says he has a good sense of humor, if that is possible at his age.

Carter LOVES their dogs – he snuggles with them, chases them and even pulls their ears!

We asked Jessica and Alex to each give us a quote about their first year as parents and this is what they shared:

“This has been the best year of my life. I can’t really even remember what life was like before he was born, but I know for sure, I don’t want to go back!  Carter makes my heart feel more full than ever before. I thank my lucky stars for him everyday.” – Jessica

“Carter has change our lives for the best.  He is the joy of our world. Having celebrated his 1st birthday this June it is hard to believe that he was a newborn last year.  He is walking and talking like a toddler now.” Alex

Jamie and I are so fortunate to work and travel all over the world.  We have even been honored by multiple organizations and associations to lecture and educate in the professional photography industry.  We love being able to do this and help others.

However, there comes a point each year when we need the inspiration, education and chance to learn from other artistic partners.The perfect adventure for us this year was Engage!13 in Asheville, North Carolina at the world renowned Biltmore Estate.

If we had to sum up our trip in one word it would simply be WOW!  To be a part of this luxury summit was exactly the inspiration and time we needed.  Every single minute that we were a part of this group we were fully immersed in opulence, decadence and awe inspiring ideas.

We got to spend each day listening to the men and women that are at the very top of the wedding industry, Colin Cowie, Mindy Weiss, Carly Roney, Marcy Blum, Harriett Rose Kratz, Sylvia Weinstock; just to name a few.  Their information, trend reports and information was priceless.

Please sit back and enjoy our trip through some of our images.  We hope that you are inspired by the decor, lighting, colors, themes and amazement.

{Disclosure – there are lot of images but it will be worth your time}
