My youngest daughter’s 3rd birthday is coming up in just a few weeks and I can’t (or maybe it’s that I just don’t want to) believe it. I feel like I’m in some form of mommy denial about this whole year turning older thing. Maybe it’s because three represents so many new milestones like preschool and dance class. Of course I am so looking forward to seeing her shine and build her independence through new activities, but it’s the letting go part that I’m just not ready for. But since I can’t freeze time, I’m grateful that I can capture moments of my girls through photography.
I photograph them each year around their birthday to prep for their party and create invitations, while also capturing their current year.
Below are a few of my favorite shots from our Frozen photoshoot and a reveal of the invites for her upcoming celebration.
An Anna (her favorite character from the movie) inspired look for her Frozen birthday shoot was a must.
What she wore – Anna Dress: Angora Boutique Sandals: Old Navy Necklace: Target Tiara: Mommy
One of my favorites. Baby girl your smile is infectious!
Her cute buddy Olaf. The perfect little prop.
And many sweet captures to create one Frozen storyboard.
Here’s a web version of her Frozen invitations which I created using photoshop.
The invites are centered around one of my fave shots from our photo session. I took advantage of free snowflake and #3 clip art from the great kids birthday parties website. There is no downloadable font to create ‘frozen’ looking words, but I learned that Trajan Pro is the closest matching font, which is what I ended up using throughout. I arranged the snowflakes in a variety of sizes on a white backdrop to create the final design. They were printed on 4×6 photo cards with blue coordinating envelopes and a sparkling snowflake seal.
The design of her party will follow the same aesthetic, with a color scheme of white, silver and icy blue. I’m excited to share more of the design process with you as it starts to come together!
Thanks for reading friends and happy almost Friday to you!
