Birthday "Experiences"

Ribbon and wrapping paper flying all through the air…piles of plastic, noisy toys forgotten in minutes…jealousy, selfishness, tears and fighting kids…ahh, birthdays. Cynical view, I know, but for awhile now I have worked on going “beyond” the typical , consumer driven, junk accumulating birthday present. Now, with some effort and creativity, Mackenzie and I collaborate in discussing what we would rather do to celebrate a birthday. (She doesn’t have the greatest ideas yet, but they’ll come). For her friend Elizabeth’s seventh birthday, we decided to have a tea party at Tea and Teacups. What fun and hopefully, the memories of this afternoon will last a wee bit longer than the newest Barbie from Wal-mart. Well, the pictures will last at least! Below are my favorites. (Still working on the flash and I realize now that the ISO was set too high)




Favorite Picture #10023

This is one of my favorite pictures. I am lucky enough to have some friends who are quite accomplished photographers that answer my many, many questions about photography. One of these friends is Kristin Rogers, who took this picture. She just started her business and as you can see takes amazing shots.
