Photographing my cousin's 5th birthday


My cousin Dina doesn’t usually request me to photograph her kids. I usually do it because I can’t resist. When Dina told me her daughter Carlisle was having a tea party for her 5th birthday, Dina made sure to tell me to bring my camera. She knew Carlisle and her 3-year-old sister Celina would provide plenty of unforgettable moments. An iPhone or a point and shoot wouldn’t do for this occasion.


About 10 little divas pranced around and learned etiquette at Tea with Mrs. B in Falls Church, VA. The ladies were dressed up and made up. Carlisle was her usual serious self and Celina always the free spirit.


Below are a few photos from the party. I don’t post photos of minors without parental permission, so only my cousins faces are recognizable.

  1. Beautiful photos! You are correct… she looks like a very serious little girl, heh. But that’s good – a LOT going on in that little mind.

  2. And you were all puppy dogs and smiles afterwards? More power to you if you Because I sure as hell wasn’t
