Hi everyone! Meet Tapuwa - the coolest 16 year old on the block! I met Tapuwa in person on the day of her sweet sixteenth birthday party. When I arrived on location, the party took me back to my teenage days: talk about energy! The energy Tapuwa and her friends had was electrifying. They hugged, talked and danced with so much life. They made life seem so easy, which got me longing to stay in that moment forever.
We started the shoot with portraits of Tapuwa and her family. Tapuwa radiated with so much beauty. She was a natural during the shoot, I must say that I truly enjoyed flashin' away when she was in front of the lens!
I got to meet her mother and relatives who were all so accommodating and loving. I immediately felt part of the celebration. Tapuwa's mother joined in for some portrait shots and I just loved seeing the love they shared. As for her mother's looks, I kept telling her that I wanted to look just like her when my daughters turn 16! What is she drinking and where can I get some!
It was time to get the party started when friends and family came through. I must say that I couldn't stop my legs from dancing along. The atmosphere and energy took me back to my pre-mommy days. I even felt that I could say that this party was LIT!
The DJ had the latest tunes and he got all Tapuwa's friends on the dance floor. Neither the music nor the food disappointed! The snacks and drinks were enjoyed and I snapped away enjoying the new feeling that even I could 'hang' with the cool kids! lol ...
It was my first time at Vanila Moon and I loved the ambience of the venue. In addition to the great services offered, they also have beautiful gardens, which made for a photographer's scenic dreams!
I must say that I enjoyed every bit of Tapuwa's sweet 16 party. I wish Tapuwa many years of long life and success in all she does. She is an intelligent lady with a bright future ahead.
A tout à l'heure
