If somebody would have told me a year ago that I would be photographing 1 year old birthday parties, I would have rolled my eyes. It would have seemed like a petty event for a bunch of moms. But after having a little bean of my own and photographing a friend’s son’s 1st birthday party, I’ve seriously come to LOVE them! They are certainly NOT petty. Getting through that first year is no easy feat, and should be celebrated with a big party. Plus, they are a riot! 1st birthday parties are colorful, there are quirky kids running all over the place, and there is cake and usually beer. Amy brought in a petting zoo for Tommy’s birthday with Pony rides to boot! It was so much fun… and I can honestly say that if I photographed 1st birthdays for the rest of my life, I’d be pretty siked. Happy birthday, sweet Tommy! You are a prince.
