chicago baby & family photographers | happy birthday sofia!

I can’t believe Sofia is already turning 1..

Her mama of course put together the most amazing 1st birthday party – simple, intimate, and such yummy, healthy food (even the sweets, everything was all organic!).

In addition to the wonderful food, there was a children’s singer who sang along to her guitar playing and had maracas for the kids, and everything rubber ducky as that was Sofia’s party theme (and one of her favorite toys!).  I had so much fun and had a blast catching up with Sofia and her parents, as well as some of their friends (you’ll recognize Piper who I just visited not long ago).

Anyway here are but a few of my favorites from my time celebrating with everyone.  I had such a great time and I’m already counting down the days until I get to meet up with Sofia and her mama again soon for a play date at the beach 🙂 Happy birthday Sofia!! XO

above: The Lavendar mint iced tea was SO yummy!  And in fact, Sofia’s mama was kind enough to share her recipe (which can also be found on her Success is Vitality healthy living and wellness page. Click HERE to check it out, she shares delicious, health conscious recipes all the time and they never disappoint!) 


Brew Moroccan mint tea (just mint), food grade Lavender flowers & stems, and the peal of an organic lemon for 15min, then add filtered water and ice to make it a refreshing yet harmonizing summer drink!
