We arranged my daughter's 13th birthday party through It's All About You Birthdays. My daughter decided that she wanted a "Photo Shoot" party...I didn't even know that was a "thing"! Until I googled it and IAAYB came up! We tailored the makeover and photo shoot party to our needs and it turned out even more amazing than I could have imagined.
The event lasted 2 hours. All of the party professionals were on time (even a bit early--they wanted to allow plenty of time for Friday afternoon traffic--loved that). We had a professional photographer, Ryan, who was amazing. He was creative--really scouted out the backyard for the perfect background and props. He worked so well with the girls--they adored him :) He made them feel like total celebrities!! We also had Nicki as our makeup artist. She consulted with each girl about her wardrobe and did lovely age-appropriate make-up for each of them. Of course, it was more makeup than they were used to wearing, so they felt very "teenager" cool. Finally, Nicole was our party hostess. Wow, she was stellar. She and Nicky came in and set up quickly and efficiently. The decor they provided blended beautifully with what I had already done. Nicole really kept the party moving and kept the photo shoot and the girls on track. From the wardrobe changes, pose ideas, to music selections and refreshments--she was fantastic! The girls loved her (mostly because she is NOT a mom :)...at least to any of them--key for the 13 year old set) and she treated them like little adults...never talked "down" to them like little kids. I think they picked right up on that--they thought she was so fun and cool. All of the party professionals were friendly, efficient and fun!
I can not think of a single thing I would change! I am so excited to receive the cd of pictures! What an amazing reminder that will be of my daughter's very special birthday!
