Excuse Me as I Gush Over My Daughter’s 5th Birthday: A Real Life Review & Discount Offer

My son had his sixth birthday at Real Life Studios, and when we were looking at the pictures of his “Rock Star” party my little girl said “Please please can I have my party there?” But of course. I’ve been working with Real Life both professionally and personally for four years now with great success, so was happy to work with friends to create an amazing party!

With an invitation like this, who can decline?

We started with a photo shoot for the invitations, during which our photographer, Jessie Arnest, needed to provide little direction for our darling diva.

She had a blast posing for her invitations, and just as much fun giving them to her friends! We prepared with a blast of pink for this little princess, including a pretty dress to match and cupcakes from Frostings with little chocolate hearts on top to match.

She’s a bit animated, I guess.

When the big day came, we were surprised by a special guest–Mickey the Magicianwho thrilled our party guests including allowing my little gal to pop out of box at the beginning of the show! Needless to

The kids had a blast with Magician Mickey and Jack the Bunny, his furry helper.

say, we did none of the entertaining at this party and the Real Life team was busy taking photos of each of our guests throughout the party so that they could take one home as a party favor, complete in a frame they decorated themselves.

She’s very shy, really, I swear.

The Real Life Studios Foyer, where party goers awaited their goody bags and personal photos.

After the gifts were unwrapped and we said our thank-you’s and good-byes, we hugged the Real Life team for another job well done, especially the portraits of our five-year-old princess signed with a sweet note by each of her friends.

The best gift of all for me–a memory that will last a lifetime.

“I want to do this again next year!” she begged. We made amazing memories and knocked our our annual portrait all at once, and put a smile on her face, so a repeat is not out of the question :-)
