We had the pleasure of photographing Chloe's 1st birthday party on a nice summer day in Pasadena at Orange Grove Park. Kids' birthday parties are always so fun to shoot because they're filled with lots of colors and smiles everywhere.
I absolutely LOVED this idea that Cheryl (Chloe's mom) did to display their first year of memories! I loved it so much that I borrowed the idea and did it for our son's 4th birthday a few weeks later. It was a really creative and awesome way to let guests get a glimpse of Chloe's 1st year.
Summer days in California don't normally just stay warm, so knowing how hot it was going to get, they fittingly made sure their guests would be provided with something to help them cool off. And what better way to cool off than to have the Get Shaved truck be there with shaved ice and ice cream? If you haven't tried Get Shaved, you really need to, it's not your typical snow cone. It's more like a snowy, icy heaven with an ice cream surprise in the middle :) You can follow their truck by checking their twitter stream here.
Chloe seemed to be thoroughly enjoying her birthday, she was all smiles with the guests all the way till the end of the party. It was a joy to capture her moments, such a cute and happy little girl!
Birthdays always bring the best things together..family, friends, laughter and smiles. We hope that little Chloe had as much fun at her 1st birthday as we did photographing it. Cheryl and Jeff, you two have such a sweet and beautiful little girl. Happy 1st birthday Chloe and here's to many many more to come!
