TWINS!!! Miles & Sidney turn one {Color theme birthday party!}

It was such an honor when my talented, fellow photographer friend, Amanda, asked me to photograph her twins first birthday party. Boy, was it colorful and fun! Miles & Sidney were surrounded by their friends and family… and the VIP was their 96 year old great-grandma who flew in town to celebrate with them.  Now, that is super special. These 2 boys are so cute, each with their unique, sweet personalities.

Happy 1st Birthday, Miles and Sidney! xo

 

Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica {Michelle & Brian}

The night before Michelle & Brian’s grand wedding day, I was there to photograph their wedding rehearsal dinner at Shutters in Santa Monica. I pulled them away to go out to the boardwalk for about 10 minutes and here are a few of my favorites! And, one with bride-to-be, Michelle, with all of her hot bridesmaids!

Annabelle's 1 year old backyard Birthday Party! {Purple & Pink}

Posted by on Jan 31, 2012 in .Little ones., Special Events | No Comments

Here are some of my favorite photos from Annabelle’s sweet backyard birthday party in Santa Monica! I loved the simple theme of purple and pink. Her wonderful smash cake, from Babycakes NYC in LA, was completely vegan and gluten-free– right up my alley! A special thanks to the careering company: Thyme Cafe & Market who provided lunch and the cupcakes and also to Mary Had a Little Party for the decorations (ETSY!).

Sullivan's VERY Merry Un-Birthday {Alice in Wonderland Inspired}

An outdoor celebration of Sullivan’s birthday in ONE-derland was so fun, adorable and simply wonderful! I watched and photographed her grow from day 10 to 1 years old. Her parents really went all out for her 1st year in life with amazing detail, yummy food, dressed-up friends, face-painting, a tea-party, pretty flowers, grass cupcakes, and really, anything Alice in Wonderland like. SUPER CUTE! Little Sully (her nick-name) seemed to enjoy herself along with her big bro, Dempsey, and all the other little kiddos and parents.

Here are my favorite images from Sully’s VERY Un-Birthday party.

Under the Sea {Max's 1st Birthday Party}

Max turned ONE and I feel honored to have captured all the emotions and details of this fabulous “Under the Sea” themed birthday party! It’s been an amazing 1 year journey for Max and for his parents, Rebecca & Zack. I was there for his newborn photo session and have captured many other stages in his 1 year of life with the “Year in a Life of a Baby” series I offer.

Rebecca & Zack, really out did themselves with the handcrafted decorations and food. From the blue Octopus cake, shark-shaped cupcakes, hand-made shark photobooth, to fun water toys, bubbles, popular sandbox, and their close friends and family, it was a very fun event!

Happy Birthday, Max!
