let me tell you how much i love facebook. i connected with Jalen’s dad, Jose, through facebook a few years ago. we went to university together and after that haven’t been in contact since. Then along came facebook and Jose and i ‘friended’ each other. we were probably facebook friends for a good year and didn’t really connect until one morning about a month ago, i woke up to a message from Jose telling me all about his ‘after university life’ — how he got married to a beautiful girl named nicole, where they lived and how they had a little boy almost a year ago. i could tell through his facebook message that he was thee PROUDEST dad ever….talking about his little jalen. then he told me he contacted me to talk about having photographs of his little guy to mark his one year birthday but didn’t want the typical Sears/Walmart birthday photo with the huge #1 (i think we all know what he’s talkin’ about!). he mentioned a smash the cake session but i knew i had to do something different….
When Nicole and Jose showed up with Jalen dressed to the nines, i knew my vision was going to be complete….
happy 1st birthday, little man!
