It was a sunny, summer day, and a little boy was turning 5 years old. This was a party, not only, to celebrate this glorious moment, but also for him to spend time with his friends as they would all be attending new and different schools in the coming fall. So, when his mother reached out to me to photograph her son's party and explained why this was important to them to photograph, I was overjoyed. Because these reasons and these growing and life changes, are why I love this job. The party wasn't just for a little boy turning 5 and his family to celebrate, but it was also his friends and their families to celebrate summertime and new beginnings. Because the world they know with familiar faces and friends will be changing very soon and I was happy to be there to capture this special time for them.

Here a are a few moments from this celebratory day.
