Earlier this year I photographed the surprise birthday party for Neil Patrick Harris, thrown by his partner, David Burtka. There were several celeb guests in attendance, including a surprise visit by their friend Katy Perry, who sang happy birthday to Neil as he blew out the candles on his cake. NPH was completely surprised by the party, especially since it was thrown months before his actual birthday (June 15th). I’ve had the privilege of working with the couple on several occasions, and they are always very kind and warm-hearted. Here are a few images from the celebration.

September 23, 2013 Neil Patrick Harris Surprise Birthday Party | Hollywood, CA
Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (known as “The Guncles“) threw a delicious party for their daughter Simone’s third birthday last weekend. The magnificent dessert table and fun eats were prepared by the talented Jenny Keller; the below images will give you a taste of how scrumptious everything was. The theme of the party was based on one of Simone’s favorite Disney shows, Doc McStuffins, and the birthday girl wore a white “Doc Simone” jacket much of the day. The decorations were cute and clever and also very DIY friendly, so if you need to decorate for a young one’s upcoming birthday party, take mental notes. After photographing her second birthday last year, I’m grateful to have been there to photo-celebrate Simone turning a year older! People.com and Celebrity Baby Scoop have featured the story and some of the images. Follow the links to check out the articles.
October 3, 2012 Gemma’s First Birthday!
It feels like yesterday when I took Gemma’s newborn portraits. Time flies as she recently turned one and celebrated her first birthday with all her friends and family. She also took her very first steps at her party in front of everyone and I was fortunate enough to catch it on camera! Her parents, Gillian and Tim, are two awesome people. What a beautiful family! Happy birthday little G.
February 3, 2012 Olivia’s First Birthday Party
Olivia recently tured one and shared her excitement for life with everyone present at her birthday celebration. She comes from a wonderful family, so it’s no wonder she’s such a light. I had a ball photographing all the kids. I love how candid and expressive they are. I’m coming to find more and more that most kids are not very camera shy. In fact, most have perfected their “say cheese” face, so I try to catch them during those moments as well as when they’re just doing their thing and aren’t in performance mode.:) I love how they bring out the kid in their parents when they interact with each other. It’s really refreshing and fun to watch. Happy birthday Olivia. Welcome to the world! To see the gallery on Facebook, click here.
January 23, 2012 Kyle Richards Book Signing
Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards, recently released her novel, Life is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real with the Housewife Who Does It All. On Thursday, January 19th, she signed copies for all her adoring fans at the Barnes & Noble in the Grove, Los Angeles. The lines were long, but the gracious Kyle stayed until the very last fan received her autograph, with a smile on her face. Her willingness to take pictures with all her fans and sign novels for hours demonstrated her deep appreciation for all of the love and support she received that evening. Other Real Housewives showed up as well to support Kyle and her new book. It was a special evening, with lots of special people in attendance. Attendees included: husband Mauricio, daughters Alexia, Sophia, and Portia, editor of TV’s #1 New Magazine Reality Weekly, Omarosa Manigault, close friend, Ali Landry, and Beverly Hills Housewife, Lisa Vanderpump, author of Simply Divine: A Guide to Easy, Elegant, and Affordable Entertaining. I was happy to document such a warm occasion. Here is an article with more details about her novel and the event: http://www.sheknows.com/entertainment/articles/946401/kyle-richards-book-has-the-secret-to-a-perfect-life.
