Last Saturday, I had the privilege of photographing Carli’s Sweet Sixteen Party.

I arrived a few minutes early, to the beautifully decorated Mediterranean Manor in Patchogue, New York.

Every detail was pristine and perfect and ready to celebrate Carli and her big night.

And the birthday girl?  She was so sweet and ready to go from the moment she stepped outside of her limo.

She was accompanied by a beautiful group of friends.

We took a few pre-party pictures to commemorate the friendships and the beginning of a memorable evening.

My favorites were the family shots.

Oh, and this one.  Carli looked absolutely stunning in her gown and it was a nice and quiet moment to take in before the celebration began.

Also, I loved Carli’s shoe choice as well as her choice of fun friends.

When her party began Carli was all smiles and ready to go.

And in the moments that followed, I had the privilege of capturing all sorts of special moments from Carli’s Sweet Sixteen Celebration.

Carli did a beautiful job sharing during her candle lighting ceremony.  Listening to her talk about her family and her friends brought a tear to my eyes as her love and compassion shone through every word she spoke.

I cannot wait to share all of the pictures and memories that I was able to capture during Carli’s Sweet Sixteen Celebration with Carli and her beautiful family and friends.  Happy, Happy Birthday Carli.  Thanks so much for letting me share in your amazing day!
