Yesterday, before Liz & Derek's wedding, I had the chance to shoot a crazy awesome birthday party for 4 year old Nicola! You might remember me shooting an Alice in Wonderland party a few months back for my little cousin Annabelle, it looks like Alice was very popular this year!

Nicola's party was like nothing I've ever seen! With coordinating by Leesa of Send in the Clowns and balloons by Balloon Celebrations it was the must not be missed (un)birthday party of the year! So much so that I decided I would hire Lea who designed the artistic effects to do something fabulous for my 30th b-day in a couple of years.

Anyway, check out the photos--what a dream for a kid!!

Let's go down the rabbit hole...

The whole party was tented with a pink carpet--pretty much my ideal situation for shooting!

These unbelievable chandeliers were the inspiration for the decor:

The Rad Hatter--a company that comes and makes custom hats! The kids can come and make their own hat from a huge variety of cool accessories:

Nicola decided to give herself a manicure before the party--she did a shockingly good job for her age (or any age):
