It's great working with repeat clients and this particular birthday party was a long time coming. I shot Josh's birthday party last August when we first moved to Nashville and was lucky enough to shoot Hayley's birthday party on Saturday. The celebration was originally sheduled a few weeks ago but when we received a snowy, icy mess of a storm it was canceled and rescheduled.

It was a fantastic cowboy themed party complete with roping bulls, pinatas, banjo players, pin the tail on the donkey and more. Cheryl of Better than a Butler did a fantastic job organizing and executing the event.

Before the party, Hayley had a basketball game she was cheering at so I went to take a few pictures.

Hayley and her cheer squad
Cutest little girls ever!

Content after the team won the game

The balloon artist, I would dare say, was the hit of the party

Cupcakes from Gigi's Cupcakes (delicious!)

Delicious punch and food

The brilliant idea of having a drink bar that included hot chocolate and candies to melt inside the hot cocoa. I loved it! Drank way too much chocolate though.

There were two banjo/guitar players there who kept us entertained. They were kind enough to let everyone play with their instruments.

Pinata time!

And a mad dash for the candy

Hayley got some help from Dad blowing out her candles

And everyone went home with party favors: candy and treats inside a hot pink cowboy boot.
I'm so happy I was able to be a part of another birthday party with this family. The party was so much fun and relaxing. Thank you and Happy Birthday Hayley!!


  1. What a party! Looks like every little girl's dream come true :)

  2. Great party, and I love the cheer squad shots too. Pinata shot cracks me up! So fun!
