Best friends, pajama party - best idea for a photo session! | Phoenix, AZ Child Photographer

I discovered a new type of session that I absolutely love...a best friend session! I have had the opportunity to photograph Eliana many times but this time, her mom wanted to do something special for her two best friends who she has known for almost all her life. It was going to be a birthday thing but ended up being a Fall thing. Either way, it was so incredibly fun to plan and even more of a blast to shoot!

The theme was a pajama party and bright colors. Before changing into the pajamas, we started with a Princess Parade in the street. It wasn't part of the plan but that's what the girls made it and we all went along with it. They marched, sang, danced and stomped while singing, "We're in the Princess Parade." The song was quite catchy. I'm so used to being in the land of boys so being able to play, I mean photograph, little princesses was a new adventure for me.

After the princess parade was over, we got a few shots in the backyard with a mosquito net then the girls changed into their pajamas. The girls were hilarious! We had popcorn, fun pillows, and eye masks. I was so excited when I found the purple and turquoise eye masks and there happened to be THREE! It was meant to be.

After all the laughter and fun, one of the girls had to leave, but since I had some more time, I set up a simple backdrop on the back porch. Wow, these girls know how to fun but they're also simply beautiful.

I hope I can do more sessions like this in the future. There's just something about being able to capture kids being kids and the connection they have with each other.


  1. Love your work! Thank you for capturing the love and friendship these three girls share. They have such a special connection and you captured it perfectly!
