Genevieve (Simply Smashing Events) and I had so much fun working on the Oscar Party photo shoot together that we’ve decided to keep a good thing going.  Newswatch 12 has asked her to be included in their party segment every month!  Be sure to tune in every third or fourth Thursday of the month from 5am-7am (or DVR it like I do!) to catch her party of the month!  This month’s theme was of course St. Patty’s Day!  She created such a beautiful kid’s party that was so much fun for me to shoot!  We shot at the beautiful Harnish Park in Eagle Point, Oregon on the most gorgeous day!  Check out my favorite shots and make sure you give love to all of the vendors and industry professionals involved!
