terrific pics! I love the words you chose to describe the night. He's lucky to have you as one of the people in his corner :)

How special Sahron must have felt that night. :)

You totally rocked all the photos, because you captured the life and the love that's right there.

Some people "see" the beauty in moments, but don't have the skill or the means to capture them; others have the means, but don't have the eye. You have both, Becky --in spades, --and that's what makes you special. :)

Happy Birthday, Sahron!

What a fantastic way to celebrate... friends, family, dancing, candy! And their very own photographer, too. I'm sure Sahron and his family are just thrilled and grateful that you were able to preserve this moment for them, Rebeckah. Great job, as always.

Now that looks like the kind of party I wouldn't have missed for the world! I could just dance the night away! :) So glad it was a huge success! Ahh...to be Sweet 16, again!

Casey Freeland said...

What a fabulous party! He'll remember it for the rest of his life. That's one thing we don't really do in my family. We have separate parties for families and friends. There are always two separate parties. It's that way for most everyone I know. I think it'd be better to combine the two like this celebration.

Love it.

Rebeckah, you are quite the photographer! If I ever have a big bash, or get married or something, I'm hiring you to capture the moment!

From the pics, what I like most about Sahron is the bow tie. That is a seriously fierce fashion statement, young man...honestly. Keep going for it. Great pics of a fun party.

My brother's favorite candy is Sour Patch Kids too. Glad your son didn't notice to miss them though.

Happy Birthday indeed! You guys looked like you had a blast! What camera did you use? (If you don't mind my asking) The photos are STUNNING.

Funkytime said...

love your party pictures! I never manage to actually take decent pictures on parties!

Crown of Beauty said...

This is simply fun... I enjoyed looking at the pictures - and the best one was Sahron being kissed on both cheeks by mom and dad.

So much love from the home front, a sure ingredient for success.

Glad I dropped by today.

Love
