Farmer Chaselyn

We've decided that Chaselyn's first birthday is going to be a farm theme. We're going to have a party at my mom and dad's farm sometime around Thanksgiving. We can't decide if we want to do it on Thanksgiving since extended family generally gets together then, or to have it the Saturday after Thanksgiving so that it's a special day set apart just for our little girl. I'm leaning toward Saturday. Anyway, while we were home in AR this weekend we took some Farmer Chaselyn picture by my dads old tractor. They're pretty cute, but I have to pick one to put on the invitations. That's where you come in. Below are 8 pictures, let me know your favorite. Each one has it's pros and cons. I like the ones with the whole tractor, because she's standing, but the ones in front of the tractor are much closer up and you can see her better. Although there's not one with a front facing smile. I also plan to do some photoshop and make them black and white or maybe a sepia tone. So here they are, help a momma out!

Picture 1: That's Chaselyn laughing while holding the little pumpkins. I know it's a laugh and it's adorable, but I think some may think she's screaming.

Picture 2: Again in front of the tractor. This time looking in the general direction of the camera, but not a full smile.

Picture 3: This one is directly at the camera, and I think it's one of my front runners.

Picture 4: Good Smile although facing the other way and she's holding a leaf.

Picture 5: In the drivers seat.

Picture 6: Good smile, and standing tall, but she gets kind of lost.

Picture 7: I think this one actually looks like she knows what she's doing. Too cute. The front of the tractor is a little over-exposed, which could cause some problems in editing.

Picture 8: Again, she looks like she's going to climb up and go for a ride.

So there you have it. Our little farmer. We're also considering taking Chaselyn to the fair this week to go to the petting zoo and see if we can get any good pictures there.


  1. oo tough call. pumpkins add some nice color, true people might think she's screaming, i kinda like the ones where she looks off to the side, in standing ones she is overtaken by tractor...hmmm..my vote is for 4..her smile it too cute!

  2. I like the first one. Anyone who knows Chaselyn would see that's a full out belly laugh and not a scream. But, I do understand your concern. I'd say my second vote is picture #4! Very cute!! I love them all...

  3. These pics are so cute! I love the party theme & she is absolutely precious. I think my vote is for #2. I like the angle of her and the tractor & the color the pumpkins bring in. Such a sweet smile :) Let me know if you don't already have something planned for them & if not I'd love to design some invitations for yall. These are all so great! Hope yall have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I love them all but my favorite is #3!
