This past weekend I had the chance to photograph a birthday party. Rose turned one surrounded by family, friends and all things pink and pretty. The decor was fabulous and will get it's own blog.
She walked around in her pink tutu and later a pink romper with ruffles. She ate her pink cake and sucked on a pink sucker.
Rose took the day in stride. Cruising around mingling like a pro. She went from person to person letting everyone see her for a bit. I don't remember her getting fussy, which is great. I hope she slept good that night so her parents could put their feet up after all their hard work.
I got some great shots of her before the guests arrived.
This picture shows a little sneak peek of the decorations. Told you they were fabulous!!!
So what's the best part of a 1st birthday party? The cake, of course. Everyone wants to see the baby take their first bite of cake and dig in getting it all over their face and clothes in the process.
Rose did not disappoint. Dad let her lick the icing off the end of the candle and it was on. She dug in making all cake lovers proud.
And below is my absolute favorite picture of Rose. Sometimes it's hard to say why something is your favorite. Usually for me it evokes an emotion that others don't. This was taken before the party while she was
cruising around on the couch. She was just doing what she was doing and stopped and looked at me (of course I was probably calling her name, but that doesn't matter).
This picture shows those gorgeous blue eyes, her little baby belly and that pink tutu and polka dot bow is adorable. Thanks Rose for being so cute and fun to take pictures of.
