This past weekend I had the pleasure of shooting Ava’s first birthday at my alma mater Rowan University. I feel like I’m starting to become part of Monique’s family as this is the third time I’ve come out to photograph her kids’ birthday parties. They are such a fun family, and I know that every time we go, we will have a great time and walk away with a full belly. This party was no different. Here are some highlights from the Ava’s Trolls-themed party!

I had the pleasure to join and photograph Maisie’s birthday this past weekend. She is a dear and close friend to the family and she actually had a helping hand in raising myself and my brother Devon. You’ll quickly notice that this was an all-white affair! Everyone had a blast and partied all night long through midnight. Check out some highlights of the night below.

What can I say about this extravagant double birthday party over in South Amboy, New Jersey this past Saturday night? To steal Double Mint’s slogan, it was “double the pleasure, double the fun.” To add on, when you get four generations of family together in celebration, it’s bound to be a fantastic night for all friends and family involved. From the two cakes, delicious dinner, the DJ’s throwback jams (90’s jams? YES!), the conga line, the “dose of chocolate” candy bar, and the heartfelt toasts, I can honestly say this was one of the most fun parties I’ve seen in a very long time. Check out some of the highlights from the party below!

After covering the Muchas’ maternity photos as well as Tyler’s newborn photos, I am ecstatic to wish a very happy birthday to the birthday boy! On Saturday, Tyler’s friends and family came out to celebrate his first birthday at Vincent’s Ice Cream Parlor in Mt. Holly, NJ. With outside temperatures reaching nearly 100 degrees, a party at an ice cream shop turned out to be the perfect setting for this celebration! With the dinosaur theme, not one but two birthday cakes, an epic cake smash, ice cream for all, and the company of close friends and family, everyone at the party had a great afternoon with the Muchas.

To celebrate the twins’ first birthday, Monique and Christian arranged a Sesame Street-themed birthday party at the Rowan University Recreation Center. This party was a true labor of love as their friends and family lent a helping hand to set up the tables, chairs, decorations, food, games, and party favors. It was an honor to spend the afternoon celebrating the twins’ first birthday, and it’s beautiful to see Monique’s family grow over time.

An old friend of mine from high school had asked me to photograph her daughter’s first birthday party. I am so glad I went to the party! From the very beginning of the afternoon through to the end, her friends’ and families’ love for little Lillie poured in from all directions. From the baseball theme (go Yankees!) and ticket entry to the coloring station and cake to the party favors, no detail was too small to add to the spirit of the day.
On a more subtle note, it was absolutely beautiful to see four generations of one family come together on a summer afternoon to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company. Kellyanne, Will, and Lillie’s chapter simply adds more happiness to an already wonderful story.
So, grab your ticket at the door to Lillie’s first birthday party and come on in!
