I arrived at the Cool River Cafe in Irving on a very warm Sunday afternoon to photograph Leiandie’s graduation party. I walked into the party room and was greeted with the biggest warm smile and hug from Leiandie! I knew immediately that her graduation party was going to be filled with love for this sweet girl and I was right! As the guests arrived and mingled, Leiandie made her way to each person to say hello and thank them for coming to celebrate. Guests enjoyed visiting and challenging others to a game of pool! After lunch was served, Leiandie’s mom gave a quick speech and she beamed with pride for her daughter! Then she directed everyone’s attention to a beautiful slideshow she had prepared that featured photos of her daughter from the time she was a baby until now. It made everyone (including me) laugh, smile, and cry! Then three of Leiandie’s cousins performed a musical piece they had prepared for Leiandie! What a special gift!
If you follow my blog you know I have photographed many birthday parties and how much I love them, but this was the first time I’ve had the opportunity to photograph a graduation party! I’ve decided I just love capturing any sort of celebration!! If you are planning an event in the Dallas area, I would love to photograph it for you!
