Styled Shoot: Happy 30!

My dear friend Molly recently had an inspiration for a styled birthday shoot featuring: big red balloons | glitter | fanciness | Central Park.

I loved the idea and especially the spirit behind it–her conscious choice to celebrate the big 3-0 instead of bemoan it. This was a hard birthday for me, one I dreaded because of cultural and personal expectations for what life, work, and family should look like at 30. So I'm personally thankful for Molly's encouragement to be grateful and enjoy and celebrate life, family, health and all of the blessings showered down upon us.
