fun [festivities]

I have to admit I was a little a lot nervous about shooting this birthday party. The gorgeous birthday girl's dad, Hamid Attie, is a very successful photographer here in Vancouver and has been an amazingly kind mentor to me ever since I first met him, so you can imagine how much I wanted to impress him!

Luckily, it was the perfect birthday party, with fun games, thoughtful decorations and, of course, lots of giggling kids and laughing adults - easy work for a photographer! The food was especially delicious... no wonder since Hamid's wife is in the catering biz. Oh, and did I mention that one of Hamid's clients is none other than the legendary chocolatier Thomas Haas, so the birthday girl's birthday cake masterpiece was made by Thomas himself?! Yuuuuummmmmmy. I had to stop myself at only one piece!

To Hamid and Rachel, thanks again for inviting me into your home for such a special occasion. I had a terrific time. c

And I couldn't resist including a photo of these yummy yummy yummy root chips. I think I ate about 100 of these delicious treats!
