LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
During the younger years of my life, I had a long lists of possible careers that interested me. I wanted to be a writer, an animator, a restaurant-owner, a cafe-owner, a librarian, a web-designer, and the list just keeps continuing. Let’s just say that so many things in the world interests me. But recently, I’ve obviously become more attuned to the more artistic careers.
However, as I stepped into this particular birthday party of Hunter’s, I began to remember an old dream of mine – to learn how to fly a plane and soar through the clouds. It seems that Hunter had the same dream.
Starting from the airplane balloons strapped to the porch all the way to the gorgeous biplane-topped cake, it was clear that Hunter and his family wanted to take his guests on a ride of a lifetime. As I met the little guy, it was also clear that he was not used to having so many guests staring at him and overtaking his backyard. Apprehensively, he walked around the party floor, greeting many guests with a confused look while holding his darling mother’s hand. But as the party progressed, shy Hunter became as calm and cool as his blue hawaiian shirt.
One of the reasons I love photographing kids birthday parties is because they’re usually decked out with such ridiculously awesome themes! View the photos below to see what I mean, and also to see my favorite photos from his birthday bash:
