MOBILE, ALABAMA - This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing one of the pinkest parties ever created. I mean, it was PINK. Almost scarlet in places. The pink party was for Amelia, a two year old who had a meltdown when she saw the top of her cake in flames (two candles). Being that she is two and was sobbing, she didn't realize how gorgeous her birthday cake was - tall, pink, and topped with a beautiful flamingo from Ellen Jay Events.
Another thing Amelia doesn't yet realize is how her future is guaranteed to be filled with beautiful parties! Her mom is Blair Gewin, owner of Blair Weddings and Events. Blair's vision for a Flamingo theme was perfectly pulled together from her list of impressive party vendors.
Blair and Walter were wonderful Springhill hosts providing their friends with a great start to their Saturday with plenty of champagne, beer, and tea sandwiches served in the no-crust southern style. The children were super happy and their mouths very messy with cupcakes, grapes, goldfish crackers, watermelon on a stick, and juice boxes.
I first met Blair, Walter and Amelia - and grandparents - when I photographed her Christening on January 20, 2017 at St. Ignatias in Mobile. For her birthday present, I framed this photo from the Christening:
She was a beautiful baby and in a short time has grown into a beautiful little two year old girl who loves parties, especially pink ones!
And yes, there were plenty of big, pink bows on little girl heads. I am happy to see that the bow scene has not changed since my girls were small. It was wonderful to see so many in one place this past Saturday.
Happy Birthday, Amelia!
