Lily’s 4th Birthday BBQ

Despite COVID, and despite moving back to South Portland, we still held a very small intimate gathering for Lily’s 4th birthday! Last year we did tie-dye and it was so much fun I decided we are going to do it every year! Lily always ends up making the coolest tie dye, and I’m usually skeptical as she’s making it, haha.

Lily helped decorate the cake, as usual, and this year she completely covered it in sprinkles so you can barely even see that it said “Happy Birthday Lily”. It was so funny! I love making her a part of her celebration.

I can’t believe I have a FOUR year old. She’s so freaking smart, sassy, independent, hilarious, and downright beautiful. I love watching her grow, even though most days it can be a challenge, haha. I’m so excited to see the kind of person she’ll grow up to be, and I can’t wait to see her become a big sister in the fall! 🙂

Here are some of my faves from her birthday party!

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
