Last year I was there for Sienna’s Baptism, and this year I was also there for her first birthday! Meeting with clients again is always super special, because through taking your photos and spending time with you, you all become way more than simply a client! I love watching your kids grow and hearing news of events in your life, and I feel extremely lucky to have been there for two of Sienna’s special events. Her first birthday party was BEAUTIFUL! The cake was absolutely stunning, and they’d also had some gorgeous biscuits made by a friend who I think could easily sell these to other people! They had a photo memory board (I always love those!) and a wall of donuts (it took all of my will power not to eat one!), and some absolutely delicious looking food! Sienna’s dad owns a pizza shop so he made some amaaazing pizzas, and I have to admit that editing all of these photos made me hungry!! They also had face painting (check out the gorgeous dog face paint and butterfly in the gallery), and a whole lot of people there to celebrate gorgeous Sienna’s first birthday.
It can always be a little overwhelming for kids when it’s their party and suddenly there’s a crowd of people in their home giving them all this attention. Sienna felt the safest being held by her Mummy, but she did so well throughout the day, and I loved watching how her personality has grown since I saw her last. They really do change so much in that first year – it’s so cliche, but so true!! Her big sister was also gorgeous in her white dress, and capturing the joy she had when playing with her cousins was just beautiful. I absolutely loved being a part of Sienna’s birthday party, I think she had an amazing day and that her parents definitely earned a big rest afterwards!! Birthday parties are EXHAUSTING!!

Having me capture your event means that you can focus on the party, and be safe in the knowledge that special moments and details will be captured for you to remember.
