In the past month, we have photographed THREE birthday parties! This isn’t something we normally do, but we had a great time. We wanted to highlight all of these events and share some highlights from our time with three of the sweetest families we know!
Nora’s Third Birthday
Elisa contacted us about photographing the third birthday tea party that she put together for Nora fairly last minute. As she planned everything to perfection, she realized that she needed photographers to capture everything! When we first walked in, Nora told us how excited she was about the cake! A few of her closest girlfriends all arrived with their dolls and, together, they had a tea party fit for princesses! We so appreciated all of the thought that Elisa put into designing this beautiful party, and we get a lot of warm fuzzies thinking about Nora looking back on these photos one day. Thank you to Greenhouse Picker Sisters for the lovely rentals and Wylde for the florals! Can you believe that Elisa arranged those florals herself?! Amazing!
Goldie’s First Birthday
We met Goldie and her family in 2016…before she was even born! You can see the maternity photos here and her newborn photos here! Lizzie and Andrew planned a birthday breakfast with some of their closest friends and family, including all three of Goldie’s babysitters! We arrived a little before the guests did, so got to spend some time with the family and take some photos of playtime! Without a doubt, though, one of our favorite parts about hanging out with this family is seeing Elijah, Goldie’s older brother. We’ve loved watching him tell us about his sister’s birthday and show us all about some of his favorite toys. Before the cake cutting, someone asked if Goldie was going to do a cake smash, and Elijah answered, “Goldie knows how to eat cake!” Here are some of our favorites:
Ahana’s First Birthday
The final party we got to photograph was Ahana’s! We have also known this baby since before she was born and she and her parents are wonderful. You can see them and their maternity photos here, Ahana’s newborn photos here, and her 6 month photos here! We love that Deesha and Dhaval value photography so much, and it has been such an honor to watch their family grow! A storyteller came to Ahana’s party to entertain her and her friends with a telling of The Hungry Little Caterpillar. Then, Ahana got to smash her cake, which she absolutely loved! Our favorite moment was when she realized how delicious her cake was and held it out for her parents to eat from her teeny hands! Insert a million sweet tears here.
Thank you to all three of you families for inviting us to be a part of these lovely days!
