Birthdays kind of lost their magic for me when I turned 18. I stopped having big birthday parties and sleepovers. Now today I just turned twenty -freaking – seven and I wanted some of that magic back. Not to mention this past year has really been one of my most amazing, eventful, busy and happy years since at least 2006. So I grabbed my sis (photographer), drove an hour to SF, bought seven (my favorite number) red balloons, wore my hottest (new) red dress and said LETS DO THIS. 🙂

There’s really no way you can ever prepare yourself for shooting on a cold windy day with balloons. But if you are determined, it can be so fun! We shot at the Legion of Honor, a really beautiful art museum with the most gorgeous architecture. You might be surprised to know that there were a lot of photoshoots going on at the same time as ours! Like a wedding shoot, quinceanera shoot, navy shoot, etc. Including people entering and leaving the museum. The entrance alone is really quite a spectacle. Everyone should check it out if they have a chance 🙂 Plus it’s near the (albeit cold) beach and the SF Zoo!

Have a great SUNDAY all!!!
