Birthday Party

Anisa’s Carnival – Birthday Party in Sydney

I’ve worked as a family and wedding photographer in Sydney for the last three years, photographing different types of private and corporate events; and I must admit that Joanne’s parties are the most exciting and fun to attend! Joanne is the mother of three, and a brilliant visionary and organiser. She never ceases to surprise with truly spectacular parties! I admire her for the bold ideas, open  heart and for how passionate and talented she is.

Anisa turned 6 and the celebration was amazing! Both kids and adults had tons of fun. And I just hope that one day Joanne can organise one of my parties.

Enjoy the photos!

Aydin’s Native American Themed Party

Organised by Joanne Kalivas, a loving mother and a brilliant organiser with immaculate taste and attention to details, Aydin’s 2nd Birthday Party was a dream to witness and document.

Even though the party was interrupted by rain, you could never tell because of the bright, friendly and relaxed atmosphere created by Aydin’s family. Adults were enjoying the conversation and delicious food, and children were entertained with games, music and face-painging by very funny Mario and Emily from Pistachio Entertainment.  In the end everyone was invited to cut the cake and enjoy this absolutely stunning candy bar – just have a look!

The cake, cookies and macaroons are by Cake Candy
