Asher and the Fire Truck | 5th Birthday Party Photography Manhattan Beach

When Heather called me up and told me what she had planned for Asher’s birthday I did a little excited happy dance. There would be a fire truck, and not just any fire truck, one that was converted into a kids birthday party machine!  Photo booth, rockin’ music, PIZZA, and even a hose that sprayed out water for playing and frolicking (perfect because it was crazy hot that day!).  Asher was entranced by all the knobs and gadgets on the truck and his sister made friends with the stuffed animal dalmations.

Heather is a photographer herself so it makes sense why she created such a picture perfect party…just scroll down, you’ll see the magic unfold. Thanks for having me!

Check out the fire truck for your next party, seriously recommended:  http://www.company77.com/

Dylan and his Legos | Kids Birthday Party Photography Pacific Palisades | Bel-Air Bay Club

What a gorgeous setting for a birthday!  Right on the sand, colorful legos everywhere, and with a nice cloud cover to protect us from the summer heatwave.  The team at Play Party LA  set up lego foosball tables, lego centerpieces, and even a lego racetrack where kids (and adults) could build their own creations and race down the ramp.  Mr. Silly made an appearance and had the kids belly laughing like I’ve never seen before.  So much more to write about but you’ll just have to scroll down to see.  Such a fun party, thanks for having me Julie and family!

Chloe is One in a Melon | 1st Birthday Photography and Cake Smash | Manhattan Beach

This was my first time photographing a melon party!  I just love the theme and all the adorable decorations Michelle brought along to Live Oak Park in Manhattan Beach.  The watermelon themed outfits were on another level.  Chloe was one of the happiest and liveliest little one year olds I’ve ever seen, she had zero reservations about climbing on top of me to inspect my camera and to say hello with a big smile.  And wait till you see how thoroughly she smashed her cake, it didn’t stand a chance.  Thanks for having me Michelle and family!

Moana + Ice Cream + Lexi | A Pool Party in Topanga | Los Angeles Kids Birthday Photography

Moana + Ice Cream + Lexi | A Pool Party in Topanga | Los Angeles Kids Birthday Photography

Lexi turned six last weekend!  And what a lovely poolside affair it was.  I met Lexi’s mom after shooting a birthday party at her studio in the Pacific Palisades.  (They host aerial yoga parties, such a fun time! -> http://www.studioktraining.com/birthday-parties)  I arrived at her house in Topanga and was amazed by the tranquil atmosphere and gorgeous views – she even had a rig set up to do aerial moves in her backyard.  Lexi must take after her mother, she had absolutely no fear doing backflips and summersaults all over the pool.  Moana was a surprise guest and she was quite the hit, I don’t think the kids gave her more than an inch of space the entire time.

I just love the decorations, splashing madness, Moana sing-alongs, and ice cream creations from this summer party, thanks for having me Jennifer!

Laser Tag Birthday | Kids Party Photography Los Angeles | Ultrazone Sherman Oaks

Happy 9th birthday Chiara!  I absolutely love laser tag parties – the lasers show up in the pictures which is pretty fantastic and I get to run around and remember the good ol’ days when I used to play.  Next time I want to try wearing a vest, I’m sure a lot more lasers would be pointed in my direction!  Interested in having your next kid’s birthday party at Ultrazone?  Check them out here:

Here are the setting ranges I used on my Canon 5d mark iii with a 24mm 1.4 Canon lens:

ISO: 16000 – 20000

f-stop: 1.4 – 2.0

shutter speed: 1/250 – 1/500

 

Here are some of my fave shots!

Archer is One! | Birthday Party Photography Los Angeles

Look at that face!  Such a fun backyard get together for such a cutie pie.  Loved seeing the birthday boy crawling around the grass, interacting with his cousins, and testing everything in reach to see if it was edible.  He shared his birthday party with two other family members…that means 3 cakes!  Triple the happy birthday magic.  So much family love in one place, I am very grateful that I was invited in to capture it all.  Thanks Amanda and family!

Books and Cookies + Evalyn | 1st Birthday Party in Santa Monica | Cake Smash

Loved this birthday!  It was a hot summer day in Santa Monica, Books and Cookies offered a magical little oasis for the birthday bash.  The decorations Morgan brought along made for an even more adorable shindig!  Keep scrolling, you’ll see what I mean.  Evalyn had a blast crawling around and being swept up and doted on by loving family members and friends.  Pretty perfect 1st birthday if you ask me.
