Brooke’s “Frozen” themed birthday party {Howard County event photographer}

25 05 2014

I recently had the pleasure of hanging out with a tremendous family, a joyous birthday girl and their friends while photographing Brooke’s birthday party.  I love documenting events and this one was SO MUCH FUN! 😀

Once Brooke chose to have a “Frozen” themed birthday party, her mom, Michelle, put her creative juices into overdrive to deliver an amazing birthday experience for her 9 year old!  From the decorative details, to the activities, to the food and the wonderful assistants helping keep the flow moving, the day was nothing short of a huge success.

When you take the time to enjoy this video, you’ll be witness to the infectious laughter, joy and pure happiness that shines from this beautiful birthday girl.  You’ll notice some of the details that Michelle came up with, you’ll notice Brooke’s older sisters and their friends assisting throughout the party, and you’ll see many of the fun activities that Brooke’s friends were able to have fun doing.  Whether they were playing parachute games, catch the snowball, ‘sledding’ down the hill, having their nails painted, eating while watching Frozen, creating beautiful picture frames, thinking of different activities that Olaf would like to do in the warmer months, enjoying the yummy birthday cake, or singing and dancing, these girls really had a great time celebrating with Brooke!

You know it’s a successful party, when you overhear one of the partiers (2 hours after being there), “What?? Only 5 minutes left?? But we JUST got here!”

Enjoy the video:

They were still preparing for the party, Brooke’s checking out the bubble machine.

I love how the Frozen characters became more visible once the ice started melting.  Michelle is a party, decorative genius!

In case you were asking yourself, “Self, what would Olaf do during the warm months?”

Of course, he’d chill on a raft in the pool. 🙂

As I was packing up after the party, we decided to have a quick, impromptu photo shoot with the wonderful assistants 🙂 and with Brooke’s family.  I enjoyed chatting and laughing with them all day, such fun and amazing young ladies!
