A couple of weeks ago I got to share a very special birthday with one of my favorite clients. Yasmine turned 4 years old and her mom made it a goal to throw the best Dora party ever– even though mom is on the other side of the world serving our country. You may remember Yasmine and this story from her previous session seen here.
I had a great time watching Yasmine jump in the bounce house, whack her pinata and tear open her birthday presents. But I think the best part of the day was the Skpye calls from mom. Every few minutes someone had her on the line and got to show her first-hand how the party was going. Yasmine got to talk to her mom several times while I was there. I was so happy to capture those calls on camera and I can bet when she looks back, Yasmine will remember those calls as the best birthday presents ever.
Here are a few fun shots from the party. I can’t wait until the next time I get to photograph this pretty little lady– especially because when I was leaving she gave me a great big hug and said, “I’ll miss you.” Yep, Yasmine totally melted my heart. And how could she not with a face like this?
