This handsome little dude and his momma were my “Mommy & Me” mini session models, so I was ecstatic when she asked me to photograph his second birthday party. Of course she wanted all of his Cars-themed birthday cuteness to be captured, because (little did I know beforehand) ALL of her party planning details were going to be pure Pinterest perfection. As expected, she was busy being Alaska’s best party planner and birthday boy’s mom, so it makes perfect sense that she wanted to have me capture his birthday party. Everyone knows that (for some crazyyy reason) mom usually ends up TAKING all the photos, and are rarely actually IN them. I’m so glad that she could enjoy the birthday chaos, without worrying about also taking photos of everything! And when I say everything, there was A LOT of cute Cars themed EVERYthing. From the cute little welcome sign on the front door, to the adorable little party favors for their guests (and all the fun & yummy details between), she didn’t miss a SINGLE party detail. All of it was SO cute, colorful, well decorated, and well thought out. There were even indoor and outdoor Car’s themed activities for all the kiddos to have lots of fun. Heck, the adults also had a great time, and THAT is when you know that you’ve thrown a successful party! But MOST important, it is clear that the birthday boy had a great time. He is OBsessed with Cars, and was on Cloud 9 the whole party! He may have had more fun playing with his Cars on his birthday cake, than actually eating it!? In addition to his countless party details, I had the opportunity to capture lots of fun candid party photos, and even managed to sneak in a few family photos of the birthday boy with mom and dad. I am very grateful to have the best clients! Seriously… I just LOVE that my clients go to such great lengths to create priceless memories. Anyone who puts that much time and effort into anything should get a HUGE pat on the back, and lots of cute photos!
