40th Birthday Party

I recently had the honor of photographing a 40th birthday party for a very special client of mine. She had her first session with me almost 12 years ago and I have photographed them several times since then. You can even see their last session here!

Her birthday dinner celebration back in January was held inside the Paddock Restaurant at Foxhall Resort in Douglasville – and I was so happy to be a part of her celebration!

Her husband actually helped plan and decorate the event, and he did such an amazing job! I loved all of the picture frames filled with her personal memories placed throughout the venue!
