Beckham Turns One

This first birthday party session in Oklahoma City will be pretty hard to top. Beckham, the shining star of the afternoon, celebrated his first birthday with family and friends in Oklahoma City a few weeks ago. What’s special about this family is that his Mama, Makenzie, was my sorority sister and roommate our freshman year of college.

Makenzie and her husband, Luke, have such a beautiful, Godly, love– one that is to be a model for others. They both love big, are kind, gentle and loving with their words and actions. Makenzie’s calming presence, genuine love for others and bright smile are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what a great person and friend she is.

I’m not sure if you noticed, but this family is as good looking as they are kind. Makenzie, former Miss Oklahoma USA and model, and Luke, also a former model, made one beautiful child. Beckham is the sweetest little thing. He loves to be on the go, to laugh and look at books. If I ever have a daughter I’m going to try and arrange that she marries Beck.

When Makenzie asked if I would mind snapping a few photos at Beck’s party, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. I had such a good time celebrating my friend and her cute little family. This little boy is so loved and I can’t wait to see who he grows up to be.

These are just a few of my favorite shots from the afternoon. Enjoy!
