Baby O had a beautiful birthday celebration last weekend. There was no crying here – she seemed to really enjoy her multiple outfit changes and having all the attention on her!:)The party was styled by Twintini Party Designs and they did an incredible job with all the party details. Guests were treated to fun balloon creations (Marcus is THE best I’ve seen and he’s really good with the kids) that kept the kiddos entertained the whole time.  Happy first birthday O!

Can’t believe Baby I is already 1! The name Isaac means “laughter” and he brings such joy to his family. I celebrated his special birthday at the Alamo Creek Community Center this past weekend. We had a break in the heatwave and the weather was absolutely perfect for the kids to play outside and for tacos and burritos! Yum! Once again, I was so happy to work with Lolliparty as they always  provide beautiful party styling. Happy birthday Isaac! (the future pro golfer!)

Blackhawk Engagement Session: J & E {Danville Engagement Photographer}

14 years of dating and J & E are finally getting married! I was thrilled they asked me to do their engagement portraits and even more excited when J wanted to do a styled shoot including her dog. I love it when clients incorporate personal touches! We started off the day at Blackhawk Plaza where it was nice and cool indoors for some formal shots and then after an outfit change we braved the 90 degree heat at the nearby park. Of course, the spot where I wanted to do the portraits was at the furthest end of the park from the parking lot. Everyone was dripping with sweat before we even started the second half of the session! I felt so bad but the willow tree provided a perfect backdrop and frame (and shade!) for the lovebirds.:)J & E, can’t wait for your wedding in Hawaii!

The day started with Courtney surrounded by her closest friends, her sister, and her mom. And of course, champagne! These ladies were so fun and so gorgeous! There was a lot of laughter and a little bit of tears too as everyone watched Courtney transform into a bride. Courtney & Goran opted to do a first look before the ceremony and it was so sweet to have the mother of the bride around the corner also witnessing this special moment. You can see her peeking out from behind the tree in the image above!:)Goran couldn’t stop smiling when he saw his beautiful bride. Courtney emphasized that she wanted a relaxed vibe at the wedding, and guess what the guests were treated with for dinner? A pizza truck! Yes, they know how to feed their guests! Congrats to the N’s!

Baby A celebrated his first birthday at the Round Hill Country Club with all of his family and friends. He was all smiles for his party and even took a little power nap so he could party all night! Hey, you need energy to smash the cake!:)The kids were all treated to an animal show and it was definitely worth watching. They even got to pet some of the animals and even had a chance to hold a snake! Baby A, I hope you enjoyed your special night!
