Avery Goes Bananas {birthday}

To see the new website and blog, visit Brooke Murphy Photography {here}!

Keep calm and go bananas.  That was the theme for Avery’s first birthday party.  Armed with a barrel of monkeys, a dessert table filled with monkey-related treats and enough family and friends to overflow a swimming pool and you got yourself one heckuva birthday party.  But even as the first guests arrived, Avery had other plans.  And they included taking a nap.  So while the birthday girl slept in Vicki’s arms, everyone else ate monkey bread and banana flavored taffy.

Avery is such an adorable little girl.  Bright eyes, light hair and devoted to her stuffed Donald Duck.  Although I think a monkey may have sneaked it’s way into her arms.  But from her beyond cute scoot-crawl to her admiration for playing grocery, she is quite the character.  So even though she wasn’t a big fan of strangers (me included), I was excited to spend a birthday with Avery and her lovely parents, Juliane and Jarrod – you two have quite the little lady.

Brooke - You know, I think the next time I am asked to photograph a birthday party, I’m going to recommend to a dry run with the cake smash. Because these babies just don’t know how to dive into something they’re unfamiliar with. At least Evangeline and Avery looked cute trying! :)
