We recently shot Elena's birthday party where she turned 4. When we heard there was going to be face painting and princess costumes, we knew we were in for a really colorful shoot. Also the fact that most of it was in their backyard provided some awesome lighting. It's no secret that our favorite subjects to photograph are children, and when we began taking pictures at the party our excitement started to take over. Here are just a handful of our favorite shots from that day.
