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!!

My Holiday Photoshoot

Whitney Hartmann - Wednesday, November 23, 2011

So I always do a couple of photoshoots with my own kids during the holidays. My mom likes to have pics for her cards, and they always seem to be dressing up for one occasion or another. So on this day I had a client photoshoot in the park, and I thought it would be good to throw some holiday clothes on them and bring them along, with my husband of course to try and help out. What you see might look familiar to you. Did you know our kids cry, scream, don't listen, and don't look at the camera too? That's right. So I thought I would post a few pics of "reality" before you get the "good" ones in the mail! Enjoy!


In the end there were a few good ones.


Can't wait for the next one! I think it will go a lot better! 


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Halloween! Milk and Honey Farms Halloween Party in Santa Barbara

Whitney Hartmann - Sunday, October 30, 2011

Happy Halloween!!! We hope you have a very ghoulish Halloween weekend! We had the pleasure of going to a fantastically frightful haunted Halloween party at the Milk and Honey Farms in Santa Barbara. It was super scary with its haunted house and full sized graveyard, plus the electric chair and all the scary ghouls running amuck. But so much fun with all the fun Halloween details, great food and fun people. THX so much for having us there!! Checkout the pics below and the fun slideshow at the end. If you were at the party and are interested in receiving your images please contact me!


We hope you have a spooky, but very safe, haunted Halloween!
