Wild One || Landon's First Birthday Smash - Kent Island, Maryland

It was just a regular, beautiful day at Terrapin Park. The sun was glowing on it's way down behind the trees, and Landon was hamming it up for his first birthday photo session.

But once we sat down for a little reading time, that's when things took a turn...

Things started to get....a little wild.

In fact, it seems as though we stumbled in to the domain of the Wild One, where a wild rumpus was about to start, complete with a delicious cake in his favorite hangout spot.

“Oh, please don't go—we'll eat you up—we love you so!” 

But just like that, the Wild One disappeared back in to the forest, leaving only sticky footprints behind...

((Special shoutout to Landon's mama Ashley for this awesome idea and fabulous acquisition of goodies to make it happen. Happy Birthday, Landon!))
