Sixteen. The time of her life.
The dress, the hair, the jewelry. All beautiful. But made more so by this girl’s inner confidence, kindness, and zest for life. She was dressed and ready to escape us and start the party…
Pure joy. Seize the night…
A very special family, proud aunts and uncles joined the proudest of them all: Cindy and Tom. They created the perfect summer celebration for their daughter.
Bringing the boardwalk to the party…Cindy, as always, you are the master of party planning. An evening at the boardwalk was created…from the scent of fresh popcorn popping and cotton candy spinning to games of chance, Fortune’s forecast, faces sketched by the caricaturist, a little Skee-Ball, and of course, a little Bball…everyone had a blast!
I wonder what’s ahead for the birthday girl…great things, I imagine!
Courtney conferring with mom, last minute notes for her 16 Candle ‘ceremony’…thoughtful, loving, funny…it was all there in her list of friends and family who mean the world to her!
Beginning, of course, with words of love and appreciation for her parents, she then turned to big brother. Sweet.
16 Candles. Makes me want to sing…
The formalities out of the way…let the dancing begin!
A father and his daughter. Saw lots of tears around the room – a beautiful bond between these two. And the brother added lightness!
Courtney gets her gorgeous hair and her spirit from her lovely mother – finally able to relax and dance, she too had a blast all night! And Tom too! A dancing machine…
I’m not sure who won.
Teammates. Friends. Young and happy and ready…for anything!
If you know me, you know I always have a few favorite moments…here they are. Evening sky. Perfect backdrop to steal her away for a few more minutes – she loved it, can you tell?
Happy Birthday! Thanks for letting us be a part of your evening. We can’t wait to show you the rest of the photographs.
