One of my dearest clients, Sam, asked me to photograph her daughter’s 2nd birthday party. Of course I wanted to so I gave her some of my available dates right away to make sure that I would be able to make it. She always has fun props for her sessions and tells me things like,” if you want I can paint these chairs “…. awesome! With her love of DIY stuff I knew that this party was gonna be super cute!
The day of the party I planned to show up an hour before the start time to make sure I could see everything before kids started grabbing goodies! On my way she sent me a message that said,” You’ll know what pavilion is mine.” Before I even pulled in to the park I was smiling because she was right. I spotted 2 rows of big ice cream cones (the ice cream parts were pink and white balloons) leading up to a pavilion that was being covered with over 300 balloons!
While they finished setting up I hung out with the birthday girl and grabbed a couple pics of her and her brother.
The theme of the party was ice cream but there was much more than just a sundae bar! Sam made everything herself, the centerpieces, banner, piñata, party favors,and of course all the yummy treats!!
Instead of a “goodie bag” the kids were able to make their own super hero cape. (Capes were constructed out of t-shirts and sticky cut outs).
Everyone’s time was spent just enjoying the great weather, the wonderfully delicious treats, and each other. I just loved watching her “share” with her Grandmas.
What birthday princess would be complete without her crown? I just LOVE this crown!!
Happy Birthday!!!! Thanks again for having me and for the goodies you let me take for Charley too!!!
