When You Give A Girl Some Glitter...

At the tail-end of this last summer I took pictures for a little girl's fifth birthday. It was a blast to  put together a session that was fitting for her personality. For the first bit, we set up some lights inside her playroom and had a tea party with some of her dolls and stuffed animals and allowed her some cookies and milk (looking back, I might should have kept the sugar-eating for last). Then, we moved outdoors to take advantage of the afternoon sunlight in the backyard. We hung up some of her princess costumes and she danced around as I took some candid pictures.

Finally, I gave her a teacup full of glitter. She chose the colors from my collection and then threw the glitter into the air. It was such a hit that she kept asking me to fill the cup with glitter again! Needless to say, her head and shoulders were sparkling by the time we were finished. Below is just a small sample of the pictures we got with the glitter:
