Rylan's First Birthday Circus Extravaganza | New Bedford, MA

Some of you may remember that adorable brother and sister Christmas duo I was lucky enough to photograph 6 months ago at Olson's Garden Center.  Well when Janessa called me again to be there for Rylan's first birthday party, I could not have been more ecstatic.  I know how she goes all out with planning and I was excited to capture it all. When I say the amount of details at this birthday party was equivalent to a wedding... it's not even the slightest exaggeration. Janessa and Chris planned every last circus nod for their baby Rylan's first birthday party and it did not go unnoticed.  Be sure to check out the vendors listed below that helped create their vision!! cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0108cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0110The Birthday Girl herself was decked out in circus' finest.cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0120cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0111cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0131Oz (their 8 year old bull dog) couldn't help but join in on the fun.cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0112cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0113Ollie blew the children's mind with magic tricks AND clowning around!cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0117cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0130Even Braylon (Rylan's big brother) got to perform some magic tricks!cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0123cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0124Yes there was even a cotton candy machine.... cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0118cape-cod-first-birthday-party-circus-themed-boston-portrait-photographer_0116This cake from Creative Endeavors was perfection and so fun!
