LEO TURNS 5 | PORTLAND BIRTHDAY PARTY PHOTOGRAPHY

Look at this sweet face! Leo was a very happy boy on his 5th birthday and with great reason. He had balloons galore, a giant “5”, a train cake, family, friends, gifts, and (drum roll) a Penny’s Production puppet show! This riveting show gained every party guest’s full attention…the highs and lows, the laughs, the tears, the drama! It was quite a thrill. Leo is one lucky little lad and in-turn, brings so much JOY to all that know him. I think one day, he will look back on this milestone birthday very fondly. I had SO MUCH fun myself, photographing this special moment in time, and sharing in the brilliance and memories being made. Happy 5th Birthday Leo! Enjoy.

This next one is where Leo was telling me “you need to stay behind the blue line”!Now to have to wait for the cake ever so patiently…

Dear Anne and Scott,

These photos are fabulous! I see the ‘pure joy’ on Leo’s face. Love cousin Celia staying close too. My favorite is the “blow out the candles” image with the whole family. Leo with the puppet is another wonderful photo. Anne, did you create the awesome train cake? You and Oona will have to get together for some baking!

I need to find an “Amy” for my next party in Dar es Salaam….Joe will 10 and is planning a neuf gun battle party…unless we can sway him to something a bit more to his mother’s liking.
