ava's second birthday || solon birthday photographer

Ava is two!  And had the sweetest little birthday party to celebrate!  Her birthday happens to fall right around Derby time and so the party took place during the big race.  How cute were the bubble wand favors for the kids?

Miss Ava was such a lady with her cupcake...requesting a spoon before she would dive in!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...Carli turned one!  And had a little bash to celebrate.  She's pretty much the most easy-going kid I've ever met and is already chasing after the big kids like it's no big deal.  And can we talk about that white canvas tent the kids were playing in?  So neat!  I think I may have to get one for our sunroom...

Little girls dressed in pink, is there anything sweeter?  These two little girls were a bundle of fun at their session - the look on the older sister's face when I said she could jump on the bed, just this once?  Priceless.

This session also marks the first time I've tried my hand at making flower crowns - they came out so sweet and surprisingly were relatively easy to make!  I did opt for fake flowers, so these little girls could enjoy them even after our session.

When it's ten below and the snow is falling, there really is no better way to escape the cold than to spend an afternoon at Burntwood Tavern celebrating a new little one!  This shower was one of my favorites (I'm biased though, I helped plan it!), mainly because a hot chocolate bar was involved.  Who doesn't love a steamy mug of cocoa with all the fixings?
