Our neighbor, Leona, turned 1! She’s the cutest little thing so her mom decided to take photos of her and plaster them around her birthday party in super fun and creative ways. I love this theme! All About Leona. Babies change so much over the first year so it was great to be able to see those changes through photographs at the party. This part was full of joy, color and love!
When your baby turns one, there’s nothing more fun than a cake smash in the park. Taryn planned this entire photos shoot from start to finish so I was just along for a ride. I met their family out at their favorite park in Redmond, Oregon for a little one year old, cake smash baby photography session. I just love her cute little outfit and how joyful this day was! It’s always an honor to capture such meaningful moments for a mom!
Elliot turned two today with an awesome Planes birthday party at a park in Bend, Oregon. We had so much fun hanging out with this crew and watching Elliot and Caleb play together. All the details that Jay put into her sons birthday party were so charming that I had to take photos of them all. I really do love documenting these precious parties! Happy birthday Elliot!
When I don’t know a ton of people, I tend to take a ton of photos. Hanging out with Elise’s fam for her first birthday was so much fun and I absolutely love their family! But I also know how important these sweet memories are to have and to remember so after visiting with the friends I had there, I quickly took to the camera to document the simple at home party.
Great party! I love the unique camp theme. So cute!! We had so much being part of this party and so glad we could capture the awesome day.
Caleb’s only girl cousin, and 2nd cousin at that, turned 1! Caleb and I hopped in the car and drove 6 hours to Seattle to be there for the big celebration. It is so much fun to be near family, so we really didn’t mind the drive. We got to spend the whole weekend with Josh’s aunt, uncle and cousins. And no, Josh couldn’t go, but we really did have fun anyway!
Christi and Kevin and crazy into Lego so it was no surprise that they had a Lego themed birthday party for their one year old. Although, I’m not sure the Lego pieces are actually safe for a one year old, it was still an incredible theme! They set out a breakfast table on their little lawn filled with pastries and Lego mini figs. Then let all the kids hang out and play with the big Lego pieces. It was fun to just hang out and celebrate Tesla!
From magical marshmallow pops, fairy cakes, face painting and a real live fairy, Mia Bella’s fairy themed birthday party was every little girls fairytale dream come true! It was so much fun to be able to join the Gordon family for this special day to document all the sweet little fun moments. And talk about the details! This party was full of pink fairy details. Stepping into their backyard was like stepping into a fairy wonderland with butterfly wings and glitter absolutely everywhere. I’m so grateful to have been able to capture all the joy and happiness of this special day!
What are little girls made of? Sugar spice and everything pink.
I absolutely love this do-it-yourself 4 year old fairy birthday party. Mom can do a great job with a few little touches and a ton of creativity. The themes here are fairy land and pink everything. Top it off with touches of green like in the Fairy Cakes sign for the vanilla cupcakes, the Magical Marshmellow Pops sign and the strawberry Fairy Drink sign (water with strawberries for a touch of pink).
The Trader Joe’s limeade and pink lemonade were such a simple way to keep the whimsical vibe going while sticking to the simple color theme. I love the added details like the jewelry on the dress stand. Mom can buy these jewelry pieces in bulk to give to all the little fairy guests.
The combination of pink balloons, paper lanterns and tissue paper flowers create a beautiful and fun atmosphere. Who says fake flowers don’t work? They make a great centerpiece on this soon to be kid crowded table. The faux hot pink Gerber daisies are topped with large jewels for extra pizaz.
The best part of this party is the professional fairy brought in to entertain the kids. She provides face painting, arts-and-crafts and fun games. Her very fairy adaptation to popular kids games is fantastic. Pass the Teacup instead of Hot Potato and Sit on the Mushroom instead of Musical Chairs are two of my favorites and don’t worry, she brings tons of props with her to each party. She can even bring fairy wands for all the guests, like the one the birthday girl is holding in the bottom picture of her.
Easy, whimsical and fun. I love it!
We donʼt get asked all the time to photograph birthday parties, but when our intern Carly, asked if we would photograph her party as a gift, I had to say yes! Sheʼs been so helpful to us and Iʼve had a blast teacher her all I know about photography, so why not gift her some photos?
Carly spent an incredible amount of time making masquerade masks for her sweet 16 masquerade ball. All her friends gathered in their backyard for a fun night of snacks and dancing. You know a party is good when all the teens are having fun for hours without any substance use. I think even the guys had a blast!
We set up a photo booth area for them and captured a ton of fun candid event photos for Carly to remember her amazing sweet 16 party!
