Pink Barbie Birthday Party Photos | Haymarket, Virginia
Before I share photos from what is quite possibly the most incredible birthday party I’ve ever seen….
I want to share a little backstory.
Many, many moons ago I had the pleasure of being a High School student in the lovely classroom of Mrs. Melinda Shingler. When she later had her first daughter, I was asked to transform the nursery into painted Winnie the Pooh wonderland (mural photos here). Sadly, shortly afterwards the family had to move… leaving behind Pooh and his friends. BUT, to my great surprise, they actually wanted me to repaint the entire thing in the new house… and I gladly did! And, it became the official nursery — first for Savannah, then Sierra, and then Sydney!
Throughout the busy years Mrs. Shingler and I have kept in touch through Facebook, and I’ve had such great joy seeing photos of her sweet family grow! They have the most wonderful tradition of throwing elaborate themed birthday parties each year. It’s a fantastic way to remind the girls how truly special they are and give them each a unique and special day. Together they choose the exciting party theme, and then the super talented Mrs. Shingler goes to work on her party-planning magic!
Seriously, she thinks of everything! It’s amazing… and inspiring!
I was beyond thrilled when I was asked to photograph this summer’s three birthday parties!
So, without further adieu, here are a handful of my favorite photos from the first…
