Jaden and Elijah had the most amazing Bar Mitzvah and I was so honored to photograph the day.  I couldn’t get over how cute they both were and how kind and loving they were with their younger cousins and grandparents.  The whole day was just gorgeous- they had an amazing luncheon at The Crosby followed by a party that evening at Powerhouse Studios that  blew my mind and left me wanting to have my next birthday party there.  (um, check out the Millenium Falcon on the ceiling!)  Wishing Jaden and Elijah and their awesome parents all the best!

Jailee’s Wizard of Oz 3rd birthday party was one of the best parties I’ve ever been to.  Jailee’s mom, Jessica, did an amazing job of putting together a party full of gorgeous details, gift bags and treats. (All the info you need to have a party like this yourself is listed at the bottom of the post.)

My favorite moment of the day happened as Dorothy was doing Jailee’s face painting.  She leaned in and said “Close your eyes, click your heels and make a wish” and as Jailee did, Dorothy sprinkled magic dust over her head.  All the girls sighed.  It was magical.

Happy Birthday, Jailee!!  Thanks for having me along!
