One of my good friends, Katie, asked me if I would take photos at her daughter Mya's birthday party! I've been friends with Katie and her family since I was just out of high school! They are one of my favorite families ever. Katie and her husband Aaron have the gift of hospitality, they are also just generally awesome. Even though Katie and Aaron are both busy people, they both work (oh did I mention they have 3 kids?) they always welcome me into their home to just hang out! I've spent quite a bit of time sitting on their sofa laughing at New Girl, trying not to cry watching Parenthood, and sitting on their kitchen floor just hanging out! I always look forward to spending time at their house! So of course I said yes! Mya actually reminds me a lot of myself when I was 12! Ignore that last sentence as you read the next one... Mya is the coolest 12 year old I know, she's so much fun to be around, she's a goof (just like her mom and dad :)) and she's so gracious and caring! Mya wasn't totally sure what she wanted to do for her party, but she landed on getting "make-overs"! One of my super talented friends Sarah Miles came and did hair and make-up, and my new friend Joy Guge did the girl's nails! It was such a fun night! I was so glad to be apart of it!
Mya's baby sister Hattie is basically the adorablist!
Katie & Aaron got Mya her first make-up. Awwww!
Joy has some seriously impressive nail painting skills!
13 Going on 30 was on in the family room :]
Then it was time for hair and make-up!
Time for some glamour shots!
What a gorgeous group of young ladies! They were all so fun to be around!
Also while I was there Joy's sister, Hannah, came over to ask her a very important question! Hannah wanted to know if Joy would be her maid of honor! Glad I was able to be there to capture the moment! They're the sweetest!
