I was so excited to get the opportunity to shoot Sidharth and Arhaan's first birthday party at the Denver Aquarium. I just knew that the photos would be amazing, and they were – but not for the reason I thought they would be.
Because as it turned out, the most magical moments of the day had nothing to do with the location and everything to do with the love that the family shows for one another.
My camera couldn’t get enough of them.
Of course, there were a few bumps in the road, as is bound to happen when dealing with cartloads of small children all at once.
But it was nothing that a little more love and a mid-shark-tank-tunnel snack couldn’t take care of.
The birthday party room is just as amazing as the rest of the aquarium and the kids had an absolute blast.
They crawled, climbed, made friends with a turtle, and ate looooots of cake.
It was just what a birthday party should be.
Thank you so much to the Malhotra family for letting me be a part of your day. It wasn’t what I expected – it was better.
