Happy Wednesday everyone! Now that the Superbowl is done, what’s there to do? J/K! Hope your favorite team won, and if they weren’t in the big dance, there’s always next year. If you don’t follow football, hopefully the commercials entertained you instead. A huge congrats to my buddy Aaron Takahashi for his Superbowl commercial, you know the one, the asian dude in the bath tub full of gold coins? Yeah, that’s him. You may have seen him before ;p
About a week or so ago, I was invited to photograph the first birthday of little Isshin, this cute, cool, adorable kid whom I met that day. He and his family were terrific and so inviting that it was a blast to photograph his party.
For those of you without kids, YOU try keeping up with a room full of about 50 of them, bouncey-house included! I pride myself with working out and keeping fit, but believe me, it sure does take a lot of energy to keep focused all the time looking for those cool kid moments. Big ups to parents, I’m telling you!
For about 4 hours, there I was, engulfed with all the fun activities the kids had at Isshin’s party, along with the great food, and cool parents! Here are some of the images I took that day. Enjoy!
Mr. One-Year-Old himself, Isshin, rockin’ that little bowtie while having a refreshing drink.
The K family – Mom, Dad, Isshin and his big sister Mion.
They’re a cool fam.
That stroller belongs to his sister’s doll.
It’s a Japanese tradition for little boys to carry a satchel of mochi on their backs on their first birthday. Isshin did fine
Happy birthday little buddy! Hope you enjoyed your day
Thanks for stopping by everyone. Enjoy your week! And i
f you get a chance, hug a kid
