A last minute shoot

Recently on Facebook, a peer of mine posted a status update about booking a wedding the day before, which I thought that was completely insane. One week later, I booked a first birthday party on the very day of the party! As it turns out, there was a photograpaher booked who had an emergency and had to cancel.  Now I don’t normally do birthday parties, but I wasn’t working last Saturday, so I went for it…and it was a blast. Many thanks to my peer and friend, San Jose based photographer Joo Pyo for the referral!

I just sat down to edit the images, but here is a tiny sneak peek…

Happy Tuesday! Here’s to almost the end of the school year and to four day work weeks!
