Happy Birthday to one of the best girls I know. I’ve known Tamara for over 10 years, and now that I’m in Atlanta close by her, we get to hang out all the time. Her husband threw a great poker party with her closest friends and we all had the best time learning / playing poker. We have to do this more often even when there are no birthdays! The pictures are a hot mess and combination of everyone grabbing my camera throughout the night, but I did manage to snap some fun pics since Amine brought over the rope lights to hang out on the balcony while we smoked some arguileh.
anyone going to sing me a birthday song?
The most awesomous kid ever Sukaina just turned 9 and she requested to have a moustache birthday party this year. It was a great idea, and we all had a great time with all the sticky moustaches, the photo booth, and eating the huge moustache cake!
I went to Atlanta to spend Thanksgiving week. It was an amazing week with close friends whom I now consider family too. To many more memories made with some very wonderful people. Cheers!
Kent had a great birthday party at Mesa, Costa Mesa. All the guys wore bowties, and the girls were asked to wear something with bows. Mine was a Henri Bendel bow bracelet, but I saw many cute bowties on sweatshirts, rings, earrings, etc.
Zain just turned 3 years old when I was in Atlanta this September. I was so happy to be there this year, as I saw the pictures from his Transformers party last year and missed them so much! Tamara always has the decorations up and this year, there was an amazing bounce house too! I wasn’t commissioned to photograph this, and I wish I could be outside longer to photograph them in the bounce house…but I was too busy socializing with the mommies inside and I was bitten to pieces every time I step foot outside without a long sleeve on. Anyways, here are the pics I did manage to capture.
Lauren asked me to photograph her 30th birthday party and I was so honored. Her family is just gorgeous and they are so hospitable. Everyone embraced me into their home and a great time had by all. Lauren’s dress is to die for, and so is her cake!
Michelle had a lovely bridal shower at her auntie’s beautiful home in Tustin. I was a part of the shower as a guest, so I didn’t take very many photos. However, the few I did take, I’m loving the colors and vibrancy.
If you didn’t get the title, you didn’t read Alice in Wonderland as a child. Sarah, with the help of her wonderful sisters Tamara and Dana, threw a wonderful little unbirthday party for her daughter Yara, who just turned 3. The theme was, of course, Alice’s Wonderland, and they went all out. The details are super impressive, from the Mad Hatter tea party centerpieces to the Queen of Hearts biscuits. I had a great time just hanging out with the kids, socializing with old friends, all whist photographing at leisure. The kids are amazing, but it took me awhile to get a good birthday girl pic of Yara. She finally looked straight at me, smiled, and said, “Yara GO!” .. and i pulled the trigger just in time.
