Princess Party

I am so ashamed that I haven’t updated this blog in seven months! Where does the time go? So much has happened, including a trip to Europe, a lost camera, a new camera and tons of shoots in between. I’m going to be doing a lot of catch-up over the next two weeks so I start 2012 with a fresh footing and won’t need to be dipping into 2011’s stock.

From what I’ve heard, 2012 is going to be a powerful year with lots of changes. There’s the possibility that Dhiren and I will be relocating to Los Angeles and leaving our nook in Orange County, in the hopes of me doing graduate school there. I will also be expanding the photography business by leaps & bounds, especially since I’ve invested in better equipment.

These photos were taken a couple weeks ago for a student’s birthday party with the new camera & lens I got at the start of the month. The party was Rapunzel themed and absolutely adorable! All the details were there and the girls had a fabulous time. These are by far, the two most fashionable little girls I’ve ever met with the most discerning and elegant of tastes! They have a beautiful family in whole and I’m glad I got the chance to take a couple posed portraits of them together.

Cupcake time!

I love shooting at birthday parties, especially for children. Children at parties are often so distracted and overwhelmed with people, presents and cake that photographers and cameras blend in and go unnoticed. I always capture a lot of good candid moments at birthday parties. This birthday was actually for my boyfriend’s nephew Max, who is the single most photogenic kid I know. Max’s mom, Chrissie is known for her fabulous cupcakes as well. Check out her bakery-on-the-go business at Ciao Cupcake!
