Katy Perry's "Baby You're a Firework" - Birthday Party Featured on Amy Atlas! - Ojai Photographer

Whitney Hartmann - Thursday, March 07, 2013

I am so excited to be featured on Amy Atlas today! This was a wonderful party for an 8 yr old girl. The theme was "Baby, You're a Firework" the song by Katy Perry. It was a girl power themed party that matches the message of the song that says , "Baby you're a firework. Come on let your colors burst!" That everyone is special!! The colors were a beautiful ombre of pinks with a coordinating teal color. Everything was very girly! We had vintage props, accessories and cake stands, from Milk and Honey Farms Prop Rental. Also they did dress up, photos shoots, and a special dance performance followed by a dance party to our favorite Katy Perry music!


At the end of the party every little girl received a teal strawberry basket filled with girl power trinkets, a small firework and a brightly colored firework lollipop from Bon Fortune. Our favorite treats were the custom designed cookies that matched our invites, from Baked Perfection and theme to a tee and of course the ombre french macarons! Yummy!! 


It was such a special day for this very special 8 year old!!

This year we truly have so much to be thankful for. Hold your babies tight and give them lots and lots of hugs and kisses. We pray for all the families who lost their babies this Christmas, and we pass on our prayers to keep all our new babies safe and sound, like this Christmas miracle!This sweet guy was an early Christmas baby for his wonderful parents! He is the sweetest guy, and we had such a great time playing photo shoot with him!

Happy Holidays!!

Whitney Hartmann - Saturday, December 01, 2012

I am so excited to share all the great holiday sessions I have been doing this season!!! Unfortunately, I can't!!!  I would really hate to spoil everyone's surprise for their friends and family when they send out their holiday cards! So I really try not to share any of my clients pictures until they get a chance to send them out! In the meantime here are some super cute pics I took of my little man over Thanksgiving! He had a great time playing in the fall leaves! Next I will share my holiday pics with you guys!! Have a great season everyone!

Lil' Pumpkin - Ojai Maternity Shoot

Whitney Hartmann - Monday, October 29, 2012

I was so excited when this sweet couple told me they wanted to do their maternity shoot at a pumpkin patch! Of course we had to go to the best one in Ojai, Boccali's! It was a perfect day. The weather had cooled and there were big puffy clouds in the sky. A photographer's dream!  We had so much fun and this great couple created a special way to celebrate their new lil' pumpkin! I can't wait to meet him!!
