Today is Friday, which is never a terrible way to start off the day! This morning, I am previewing Brady’s Barnyard Bash for you. While I do not normally take many events, as I specialize in photographing bundles of joy, baby bumps, and family sessions, I had a wonderful time spending the afternoon with the R family, and helping celebrate Brady turning one. What a wonderful milestone!
Mom did a beautiful job on the party; she planned fun details such as the festive menu mirroring the adorable barnyard theme such as “Chicken Feed” (aka Chex Mix) and “Cheese and Quackers” (aka a simple tray of assorted cheese and crackers, ha). I never mind a little humor! Moreover, since it is summer here in Houston, and quite humid, Mom planned for a bounce house and a water slide. Wow! I’m sure the party guests, particularly the kiddos, were in heaven. Complete with cool drinks, good company, and a laid back atmosphere, Brady’s party was a huge success!
As the photographer, it is my job to stand in the shadows and tell the story, to let everything unfold, and be patient. It is easy to see how loved Brady is; how he is enveloped in support and how excited everyone is to celebrate the fun milestone of turning one. My favorite part of his birthday bash is the cake smash. Oh, my goodness! When he saw the cake, he immediately reached for it and dove right in. He didn’t miss a single beat. And he deserves it. Happy birthday, handsome boy! I hope to see you and your sweet parents again. Thank you for having me document his birthday! It was a pleasure!
Mom is super creative! What a cute, festive spread.
The goody-bag table is adorable! I also love how Mom made a banner out of Brady's photographs. This is a personal touch that adds a warm dynamic to the event.
