Scarlett turned one a few weeks ago and her family threw the prettiest party for her! When I walked into their Roscoe Village home, I was blown away by all the details her mother had put into the decorations. Yellow and pink signs, banners, and and balloons, perfectly arranged food for all ages, pinwheels fluttering near the delicious cakes, and photos of the birthday girl all over!
Big sister Annabelle happily wore a coordinated outfit with Scarlett and the two looked beyond adorable in all their pink and yellow ruffles and bows.
As more and more family and friends gathered, kids of all ages ran around the house and bubbles began to fill the yard. This family’s backyard was the perfect place to hold a summer party: fenced in with a small green space, it was safe and fun for all the kiddos, but also had comfy patio furniture for the adults and an outdoor fireplace, twinkly lights, and tiki torches for later in the evening. During the birthday song, I loved how Annabelle was right at Scarlett’s side, mouth open and eyes filled with excitement as Scarlett got to taste her cake for the first time. Afterwards, we took family photos of the various family groups present and then everyone trooped outside to enjoy all the delicious food and drinks.
Seriously, how amazing is this Roscoe Village backyard? Such a great place for a first birthday party!
Best yet, the family loved the photos! Nothing makes my morning quite as much as waking up to a happy email.
These are absolutely beautiful!!! Thank you so much for capturing such a special day for our family so perfectly!!! – W. Family
Thank YOU so much for trusting me with your memories! I hope Scarlett’s second year goes by as wonderfully and joyfully as her first!
