To celebrate turning the big FIVE, a tea party seemed rather proper for Miss Natty. Tiny tea-cups (and tiny little pinky-fingers), fancy linens, balloons, tea sandwiches, vintage-style party favors, a pink ruffle cake, silly faces, pastries, a shout-out board, and all the love in the entire world, made for a sweet little afternoon of celebrating.
In total honesty, these are two of my very favorite faces to photograph, ever. I’ve had the pleasure of doing so numerous times and each time it’s a treat. Not one time have I come home and not uttered “there it is” while looking through the uploaded images. Each time, there’s a gift in the form of an expression. I won’t say which it is this time. I hope you’ll find one that reveals itself to you.
In addition to documenting Kate’s 100th Day Celebration, Kate’s parents wanted a custom session just to focus on Kate as an infant. However, I think as a big overseas move approaches, they decided to include the whole family. Instead, focusing on their time in California as a family. I think that was a great decision. We decided to meet at one of thier favorite parks.
I’m preparing a blog post of my session with Baby Kate and her family, it’s not quite ready but I just can’t wait to post this one of Kate mid-yawn. I love it.
I’ve recently had the pleasure of photographing a Korean birthday tradition, called the 100th day Celebration. The Paegil celebrates the childs health during the first 100 days of life. Kate’s 100th day celebration was, as I observed, beautiful. A warm and loving group of friends and family, gathered to shower precious baby Kate and her parents and brother with kindness and love. I was truly touched by this event.
