First Birthday

First Birthday Photography in Stamford, CT

This little guy just turned one and his parents threw an amazing, dinosaur-themed first birthday party at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. It snowed on that March afternoon, but thankfully it was the last snowfall of the season! The party started at 4pm with hor d'oeuvres, fun & games followed by dinner catered from Dinosaur BBQ - how perfect!

Shyam was by far the happiest birthday boy I've ever photographed - just check out his adorable smile below in the select shots from the evening:

Looks like Shyam had a great time during his first birthday inside Bendel Mansion! His parents did a wonderful job planning his special day.

Some shots from Hecksher Farm during feeding time before the party.

The Stamford Museum offers an excellent venue for a birthday party which includes a planetarium for the whole family to enjoy.

As I was leaving the party, I just had to grab the camera again to capture this shot of snow falling on the sculptures outside Bendel Mansion in Stamford, CT.

Event Photographer in Stamford: Aarohi's First Birthday

Last weekend was Aarohi's First Birthday Party at Dolce Norwalk in Norwalk, Connecticut. I was hired to photograph the event and capture portraits of the adorable Aarohi. In case you were wondering, her name means growth and ascendence in Hindi. She will grow up to become a beautiful young woman and as their family photographer, I feel so lucky that one day she will look back at these photos and that her family will cherish them! The entire family and group of friends were very welcoming and they couldn't have asked for better weather that day. The party started at 2pm so I had to battle the harsh sunlight, but the location was perfect due to beautiful trees and greenery that provided many shady areas for portraits. I also photographed Aarohi's friend, Tanya's First Birthday there the week before which helped with scouting locations. 

Here are some of Aarohi's adorable portraits (she was so much fun to photograph!) and family portraits taken on location before the party started:

Event Photography: Tanya's First Birthday at Dolce Norwalk

Summer weekends for Tashography were full of first birthday parties and little Tanya's was one that was memorable and absolutely beautiful at Dolce Norwalk in Connecticut. The setting was perfect for a summer birthday party and the weather this summer has been ideal - low humidity and comfortable temperatures. Tanya's parents hired me as their event photographer in Norwalk, CT last Sunday to capture these special moments for their family. I'd like to share some photos from the party in this post so you can see how cute Tanya is!

Happy First Birthday, Tanya!
