I always get invited to all the awesome parties. Invitations come from the girl next door having a chic soiree, the lawyer celebrating by having a black tie affair, or the cool kid on the block with the biggest petting zoo. This party was extra special though. Julie was celebrating her 84th birthday. Her family surprised her with a backyard brunch complete with delicious food and entertaining musicians. I was happily there to document the day. Julie’s daughter and granddaughter told me that she never liked having her picture taken. Well I must have had the magic touch. She posed happily with the smallest smile upon her lips. Before I left she thanked me for being so sweet and patient with her and her family. Happy Birthday Julie!
