1st birthday / Smash Cake

There’s nothing that makes me happier then capturing these events for friends. M&R are close friends of Gi and I and we absolutely love their cute daughter. She’s like my dumpling house buddy, where for whatever reason, we always end up eating there together all the time (ironically enough, it’s the same place we met last week when I gave them their pics..hehe)

I’ve been to other events from this family, so I pretty much know what to expect. The mom is pretty on the ball and when it comes to details, décor and dessert as you’ll see in the pics. The party was held at The Peanut Club where all of the birthday girl’s friends had a blast. After the event, we headed back to the grandparent’s home to do a cute smash cake which worked out perfectly.

To our friends R&M, much love guys and thanks for having me capture A’s first b-day event. See you guys at the next dumpling house / dim sum event.

You Friend, Leon

Bowties, Mr.Men, Photo booth & Smash Cake – My little buddy turns 1

There are so many amazing captures that have happened in the past month that I’m excited to share.  For me when I’m not shooting, I’ve been hibernating in front of my Mac editing and wrapping up the last of my 2013 shoots.   I decided to take a break and give my blog some much needed love and share some cute pics of my little buddy’s first birthday party that happened a month ago.  I appreciate and love all the effort that C&B put towards their son’s first birthday that made it extra special.   As suggested in the title, they had bowties and hairbows for all the kids.  This Mr. Men themed party also had an awesome photobooth ran by our photographer friend Kevin (our past wedding clients may remember him shooting along side with us).  It was cute seeing all our friend’s kids everywhere and I can totally see that in a few more years this circle growing with even more kids.

For those of you that were at the party you prob didn’t see the last of these pics, since we set up a smash cake session afterwards on C’s actual B-day. For all the smash cake captures I’ve done so far… my buddy here takes the cake (pun intended) as he went out to town on the cake… love it!


Love, Uncle Leon

Happy Birthday // Smash Cake

I want to first thank my friends Joyce and Denyse from Lullaboo Blossoms for this warm referral and hope you both are keeping well =)  T and I chatted on email about setting up this Christmas shoot / first birthday smash cake shoot for their son a month back. If my memory serves me correctly, his birthday should be right around now. .. so happy birthday =)  I never met T&A prior to the shoot… but the ironic thing is and I say this with all smiles and giggles is that in all 7 years of doing this, I never had so many emails fly back and forth.. leading up to a shoot… all good though.. I respect people that prepare.  Speaking of which, on the day of their shoot, they where totally prepared. We started off doing a few family captures and worked outside for a bit and finished off with this awesome smash cake session.

To my new friends, T&A thanks for this shoot. Happy Birthday to your son A and wishing you guys a Merry Christmas!   Here are a few more pics from our session.

Your Friend, Leon
