Jasmines 16th

Client Spotlight

Welcome to my first client spotlight! I want to share all of the celebrations I photograph. Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking pictures of Jasmine’s 16th birthday. Special thanks to Selena and Ryder. Selena and I go back to middle school and last year I photographed her wedding which you can see here. Seriously this was the epitome of sweet sixteen gone spooky, check out some of my favorite details here.

The Look

First Jasmine had the perfect look. I loved the nails in addition to the black ball gown and crown.  Scroll to the end to see the amazing gown and full look.

 
 
The Decor

From the door to the tables and the photo booth, the horror-themed decor was on point. The photo booth was a favorite. The cake looks terrifying but tastes awesome! I think it was snickerdoodle? I kept forgetting the giant Jason was fake and kept startling myself lol. 

 

 
 
Dancing

Everyone got out on the dance floor. I loved seeing the kids and grandparents dance! 

Family and Friend Love!

Witnessing this supportive friend and family tribe celebrate Jasmine really touched me. I could see the love this family has in the care they took in making everything just right, in the laughter and toasts!  I enjoyed watching Selena be the big sister fixing her crown and Mom and Dad making sure everything was set up and organized. Jasmine took time to show her love back to her friends, grandparents, and family. I saw so many little kids run up and hug her or grab her hand. The room looked scary but the love was not (lol too cheesy?)  There are so many more pictures I didn’t add but I hope you got a taste of what this night was like, Happy Birthday Jasmine I hope you enjoyed your celebration and I wish you the best year to come!

See you next week! Also, join the #joyjourney with our first nature walk on April 24th!

Finding the Joy

Welcome to my blog. I talk about choosing joy, to me, that means believing God is good and there is hope in the face of difficulty. I also talk about my goals and challenges. I believe in perseverance, grit, dreaming big, and choosing to challenge yourself to be better than yesterday. 

 

What does it mean to be a part of the #JoyJourney?

 

It means to choose JOY in the good and bad!
It means we focus on our goals!
It means we challenge ourselves to do better!
