Party Hearty Box | Themed Party Boxes | Brand Photography

Throwing parties can be difficult. How do people have the time to get all the pieces from a party together? From balloons to invitations, there’s a lot of decorations that go into planning a party! Luckily, Party Hearty Box has a way to help you with that. I had so much fun working with the owners of the company Elizabeth and Brittany to capture their fun and sweet brand! We were able to photograph their four major party themes as well as a mini cake smash theme.

The first theme was a jungle theme complete with Beanie Babies and animal crackers. The second was a tropical theme which made for a perfect transition. The third theme was a mermaid theme and then finally was the shark theme. Each theme has a banner, balloons, and table ware; however each theme has its own special touch! For the jungle theme, there were animal masks for the kids to wear (and coordinating cookies to eat), for the tropical theme there was the pineapple table topper and cake topper, there was a make-your-own-mermaid craft for the mermaid theme, and for the shark theme each kids got to put on a temporary tattoo!

I loved being able to take photos of their products styled so perfectly for a party and having the kids be part of it was the icing on top of the cake. I loved how the kids had so much fun getting to attend four parties. It was definitely a learning curve for me to photograph kids. This was my first time working with kids in a professional brand photography setting which is very different from family photography. Everything went well and we got some adorable photos!
