Olivia | part II

Ruffles. Adorable.

The fun of smashing a birthday cake… She couldn’t get enough of it but don’t worry, we took the cake away after a few minutes.

Olivia | Sneak Peek

I had quite a busy day today, with two sessions back to back. First one, Olivia. Here she is in her 1st birthday party outfit. Little Miss Olive doesn’t officially become a toddler until August 11, though 🙂

I have to admit that as soon as I saw her outfit I thought (and said it out loud, too) ‘now I want a girl!’.

By the end we got messy with a cake smash, but this is all I have to share for now…

Benjamin is ONE!

His party was SO much fun! And this tiny sneak peek doesn’t even begin to describe it 🙂

Can you say HOT? Everyone was cooling off the best they could… Sure, there was a pool but the birthday boy thought it was a lot of fun getting in front of the cool mist blowing fan (is it even called that way? I don’t know, but English is not my language so be creative and figure the name out yourselves)!

T-1 month to the big ONE | Birthday Party Planning

Today my little guy is 11 months old. I can’t believe we are only a month away from his first birthday… WOW!

Speaking of which, now that I have sent them out and this post won’t spoil it for my guests, here are the birthday party invites.

I loved the stamps my husband ordered. Medium size works great on 4″x5.5″ envelopes – image is 1.1″x1.4″.

This party planning time is SO exciting. You would think that being almost ONE, my son is now sleeping through the night – and that I have all the time in the world to be crafty and creative. WRONG! He is most definitely NOT, thus I am one tired (wait, scratch that and put exhausted) mama. But I am still excited to lose those few hours of sleep over orange and blue paper pom poms and other decorations I’m making. The other day I uploaded an iPhone picture on my FB profile (by the way, I love the Hipstamatic app), the picture of a sewing machine. Wow, who would ever thought I’d be going to Target to get a Singer?! This first birthday party planning is making me do crazy things. Yes, you can call me Martha.

Of course, I’ll be sharing all the details… in time… I don’t want to spoil anything for my guests.

Adam is 30!

I had the pleasure of photographing the surprise birthday party my friend Jaclyn organized for her husband Adam. It was an amazing party, with delicious food and fun people to talk to.

While I have yet to finish editing all the images, here are a few relaxed family portraits taken after all the guests left. You might recognize little Miss Olivia



Three generations.


I think Olivia was tired and done with pictures. What do you say?



There are so many more I would love to share, but not until I’m back from Europe.
