Before we did a family session with the Kim family, we actually photographed Hunter's 1st birthday a week prior. Also in Manhattan Beach, the party took place at Julie and Brian's beautiful home a few miles from the coast. We absolutely love birthday parties, especially when there are plenty of children running around. Julie themed the party after Hunter's favorite book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, a book that we remember from our childhood. Needless to say, she did an amazing job and we loved photographing every detail.
Hunter's grandparents could not attend the party, but they were able to be present through the use of Apple Facetime! We've never seen someone use Facetime like this, and could not believe how far technology has come.
Another family member talking to the grandparents...
They hired a balloon guy, and he came with this super cool vintage bag filled with balloons. When we asked him where he got it, he replied with "Ebay!".
The kids at the party were all adorable...
Happy Birthday Hunter!
