I just got back last week from a trip I took from Long Island over to the U.K. I have it as my yearly goal to go once a year for about a week to visit dear friends, take a mental break, and capture some life over there with my camera. My friend, Chloe Ray, a top singer-songwriter on iTunes in the U.K. hosts open mic nights for musicians to gather and share their talents. She asked me to capture the night. It was a great time with so much talent. Scroll through to see the mega talent that was displayed that night.
I had the pleasure of capturing the surprise sweet 16 party of my client's daughter, Julia, As a Long Island family photographer, I often have the opportunity of capturing several milestone occasions of my clients' families, and this was no exception.
As we waited for Julia to arrive to the party, where we would all be hiding to jump out and surprise her, I captured the little details that made this party a big hit.
The party theme was "sweet" with goodies and fun games scattered all around. The friends of the guest of honor had fun playing the games while they waited for the Birthday girl to arrive.
We soon got the text that said she was arriving soon and we all took our spots outside in the party tent. There was a sliding door that separated us from the house so she didn't see all of her friends and family that were waiting to surprise her.
She arrived and you can see in her face she was very happy to see everyone. Her parent's hard work of planning the party and the surprise paid off.
I had so much fun capturing this party. The group of teens at this party were so fun and made me feel young again. Happy Birthday to you Julia!
