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.

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.

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.

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.
