Shooting Bella’s first birthday party was a piece of cake. And she really enjoyed her pieces of cake. She even shared some with her parents. All of the guests were requested to wear bright colors like yellows and oranges. I’ve never witnessed the afterglow of an atomic bomb, but I imagine it’s nowhere near as bright as this party was. Happy first birthday, Bella!

Here are some of my favorite shots. View the gallery to see all of them.
