Luke | First Birthday

June 28, 2011

Every once in awhile, you meet someone who has the uncanny ability to sucker you in to the most ridiculous situations. Thank you, Kristen Johnson.

This is the day that I, Kristen Weaver, shot a children’s First Birthday Party.

Surrounded by babies, and juice boxes, plus the obligatory dad-on-grill-drinking-beer, I entered the strange world of mashing cake, drool and sippy cups.

But how do you celebrate your first birthday when your mom is part of one of the best Event Coordination practices in Orlando? With a Chicago Cubs themed birthday party, complete with concession stand, treats, a ball-field, and the most amazing cake-treats by Party Flavors!

Happy First Birthday Luke! And thanks for letting me celebrate with you, Kristen :)  But, the next time you want to hang out – I vote Olive Garden!

    I’ve been to weddings that weren’t planned as well as this kid’s birthday! You did a fantastic job capturing the spirit of a first year party.

    Kristen, you are a gifted photographer. I’m amazed at how you captured the expressions and memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. Maybe you should consider those drool and juice box parties! P.S. KJ sure knows how to throw a party, doesn’t she?!?
