How about a real life fairytale for your birthday party? I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful 1st birthday of Aubrienne at the wonderful Marina Grand Hotel in New Buffalo, MI, a couple of weekends ago. Her mother planned the most amazing birthday party I have ever seen, a room full of color, candy, and magic... a spectacle for both children and adults. Aubrienne was the perfect princess, complete with mini tiara and lots of smiles. Several of the other children acted out a special fairy tale story written just for the birthday girl. They played "Happy Birthday" on the violin, indulged in candy and cake, then went to town at the craft table with paint and glitter. Here are some of my favorites from the day.
Friends and family helped with the final touches.

She was tuckered out by the end, a well deserved rest after a great party. Happy Birthday Aubrienne!
